fitness and travel
Sunday, May 17, 2015
Next weekend I am going to be in the car for 5-6 hours on Saturday and Monday. I plan on using my bike Saturday morning before we head out, which really shouldn't be a problem since my husband isn't known for being an early riser. I should be able to get an hour in and then an hour when we get back on Monday. We won't stop a lot, but I should still get my 10,000 steps those days.
Sunday is another story. We're planning on visiting Tahquamenon Falls if the weather is nice. I checked today and they're predicting rain and possible thunderstorms. Don't know what I am going to do if we can't get out. I'll have my computer so I know I can do some videos, but space is extremely limited! Would it be the end of the world if I was short on my steps this one time? No, but it would feel like that for me. If they are still predicting rain on Friday I may have to take my little bike with me since there isn't a gym or workout room at the motel.
I won't mind the rain - we're meeting my parents so I'll be able to spend time with them - but I don't want to take a day off from getting my steps because one day can easily lead to more. I know I can eat ok - being gluten free makes that a little easier - but I want to get my activity in. I haven't taken a day off since I got my tracker at the end of April. I already have more than 1500 minutes this month - more than I've ever had in a month!
It's odd how obsessed I am with this since I haven't noticed any changes. I haven't lost an once and I think my clothes fit the same, so why do I keep going? Because this time is going to be different! I am making an appointment with an ob/gyn who specializes in female infertility to see about getting me as fertile as possible and part of that is being healthy. I may not have noticed my body changing in ways that I would like, but I feel better and have more energy. Unfortunately I still have trouble sleeping and turning my brain off, but I have faith that I will get where I want to be. Because this time will be different!
