Week 5 - Day 33 - Sometimes There's a Light!

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Well, I've been slumping - admitted it and scales were confirming but my body told me too - depression was worse - feeling fat! So yesterday I came home from work in a bad mood again - about 4th time in less than two weeks and I decided to go to the trail and run. Running the trail is different than running around the neighborhood - the neighborhood of course is sidewalks and asphalt. Lots of curbs and hills and people. The trial is pretty secluded - lots of bikers and joggers but no traffic. Soft gravel paths and pretty straight way so I jogged. I hesitate to call myself a jogger - for instance one girl passed me going up and back 4 times - in other words she completed the entire path two times while I only ran about 3/4 of it once. Another duo of older ladies wanted to know if I had completed the path already and when I said I did not do the whole thing they said we were going to say you "walk really fast" I wasn't walking! I thought about my husband and his running and entertained myself with the concept that I am the tortoise and he is the hare with a jet pack! That's how slow I am compared to him. Not real motivating stuff until I finally stopped my "jogging" and checked my steps. 3 1/4 MILES!!!!!!!!!! emoticon I did it! and I'm still walking today. At home I had dropped to 175 for the first time since last year around this time. Unfortunately today was grocery day so I did walk at lunchtime and
ran in place while watching the Phillies but I did not eat healthy - quick dinner on the heels of the groceries - no time for a real meal. No snacking though. Maybe I am back.
