I am wired, I am psyched.
This morning, I checked out my pedometer, and it said 2/3 of a mile after I got into the office. Now, that's nothing new, but it took me 10 minutes of walking, all told. This is 4.0 MPH! If I go any faster (e. g. 7.5 minutes, which would be about 5.3 MPH), alli, I believe, would consider it to be jogging.
Hence I am, as of now, at the top end of walking speed according to alli. All this from someone who was definitely at the lowest end (2.5 MPH) at the beginning of the year. Here it is, about 10 weeks into my lifestyle change, and I'm suddenly Speedy Gonzalez.
It's not just more energy and more speed, it's more joy. It's like that Kibbles n' Bits ad: www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5fOiB4RL_Q
More taste (and I really am getting more taste in my food, rediscovering herbs and spices I'd forgotten and getting back into COOKING) and more joy!
But I'm still not gonna eat kibble. :)
