I didn't make it to the gym last night but all was not lost, I hiked around town. I sat at my desk all day yesterday dreaming of the sun's warmth on my shoulders and a cool breeze blowing my hair. When I left the office to walk to the gym I just kept walking. It was beautiful out and I didn't want to be in a stuffy old gym running on the wheel aka treadmill/elliptical. When I finally reached home I mapped it out with the help of SP and found I had walked 3 miles. I wasn't sweaty like when I leave the gym but I felt refreshed and like I had a good workout nonetheless.
Today, step class calls my name.
Ahem, I'm tired of my thighs rubbing together whilst I walk, jog, etc. I'm over it. It needs to change and it will.
Ummmm, I'm tired of buying pretty high heel shoes that expire after a few hours due to the ball of my foot feeling like it's on Fire.
My latest find, the second cutest so far this season can only be worn outside the office for short walks.
I went to The City and walked in them for 3 hours one day and was nearly crippled when we got home. The Mr. was not happy, I was just in foot pain.
I asked my shoe guy (yeah, I have a shoe guy) what the problem is and he confirmed that it's due to my weight and the heel height. Hmmph! I don't want to be restricted to flats or low heels because of my weight. I want to continue to wear my sexy heels and not have them expire and my feet catch on fire!
Have toned, thick thighs that show my muscles when I walk/jog.
Enjoy high heels without the balls of my feet being on fire and being bruised from all the weight baring down on them.
I will continue to workout religiously, stay accountable with my calories and follow Doc's plan. With that combination I will make it happen. When, is the question!

This week's mid-week peek was a little startling.
My hands and feet tell me that I am retaining water so I knew I'd have a higher number @ the time of the peek. What I wasn't expecting was being 5 lbs up from my lowest number. WHAT?! I stepped off the scale and told myself the number isn't real. I mean it's real because that's what the scale says but gheesh! I know in my heart, mind and SP calorie tracker that I have not eaten enough food to gain 5 lbs in less than a week. Nope, can't be real - not even close.
My jog yesterday went well. Very well. I manged to complete C25K, W7D3 - which means I jogged 25 minutes without a walking break. (It helped that a "runner" was on the treadmill next to me ... I like their energy!) I've workout and/or been active 16 days so far this month, I've logged 944 fitness minutes thus far.
In other news: The Mr. wanted to buy more chips for the house over the weekend. (sigh) I asked if we could skip them for a few weeks (I was the one consuming the chips, not him), he shrugged and said sure. I mentally did a happy dance and bought more banana's instead!
So, I reject the reality of a 5 lbs gain in less than a week. My body will adjust its self and all will be right with the world. For now, I continue down my healthy path.
