The good, the bad, and the?
Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Apparently I really needed some retail therapy today. I did a 30 minute walk on my break, thinking the whole time about walking at the wildlife sanctuary after work. I thought it would be a good idea to stop at the store on my way home to get new shoes and socks to keep in my car since last time I was going to walk at the wildlife sanctuary I didn't follow through because I didn't have walking shoes with me. Today I decided that was crazy, just go home and change shoes, which is what I did. Halfway through my walk I'm going at a pretty good clip when BAM! My shoe breaks. I love these shoes, they're like Keens, but way more affordable. This is the third summer for these shoes so I guess they did okay.
Anyway, I went to the store to get a new pair to find them on clearance since the focus is moving to fall, and one pair in my size. I still have no shoes in my car, but I keep a pair at work for my break, so it's okay. Besides if I don't stop at home before heading to the wildlife sanctuary I won't have peanuts for the chipmunks. Then again, I didn't notice any chips today.
I don't know what I'm going to do when the snow comes. I have an audio workout on my iPod that I should be able to do in the room that will be empty during the day once school starts, or maybe I'll look into joining the gym that's right down the road. There's still time, but I don't want to start the excuses again. This is the longest I've worked at losing weight since high school, but that wasn't a healthy way of doing it.
This is it. My eating habits are so different from how they were and I'm dusting off my exercise DVD collection. The weight came off quickly in the beginning, but these past few weeks have shown nothing, yet I am still working at it. Defeat is not an option!
