The walk hurt this morning, so it was the shorter walk.

Things went down hill after that.

Got to work, and felt icky. Couldn't quite get it gear so I left 45 minutes after arriving. Came home. Feel like I'm wearing an anxiety hat. Even the nap didn't help. Tomorrow will be better.


Black Jeans

Monday, April 14, 2014

3rd day of the longer walk. This morning was overcast, in the upper 40s, with a rather energetic breeze.

I love black jeans. I haven't worn mine in a long time, primarily because I didn't want to know how badly I couldn't fit into them. They've been hanging on a hanger with the laundry for a long time -- well, probably since I stopped wearing the blue denim ones.

I'm wearing them now.

I am happy.

    AWESOME! Why are black jeans always smaller??? I thought it was just me that thought that.

    Black jeans are always tighter than normal blue denim.

Once I went to a concert. We were under the roof, but in the back row. It was rainy and windy so my pants (black jeans) got wet. When I got home, my legs were black, but it washed off in the shower.

Small Victories (2)

Sunday, April 13, 2014

That's two days around the Grand Basin. My pace is abysmal, but I accomplished it.

I've noticed, besides sleeping better which I expected, I'm not craving coffee as quickly first thing in the morning, and that I seem to be eating gobs of fruit, mostly melon.

    Small steps. Even though your pace isn't where you want it you accomplished what you wanted. Your pace will improve and soon you will look back and see how far you have come. Keep it up! Awesome!

small successes

Saturday, April 12, 2014

The top picture was shot opposite the bottom shot, which means that for the first time in months, I walked around the Grand Basin. It hurt, and it took 35 minutes to walk .57 mile but I did it.


Casual Fridays

Friday, April 11, 2014

I am wearing jeans today. They're the only pair I own, and about a year ago, I needed a belt to hold them up. Since November I could barely get them on.

Small victories.

    A perfect Non Scale Victory. Live in the moment! We have casual day on Fridays and I usually work at home on Fridays so it doesn't matter to me. Well today I had to go in the office, and I tried my 4 pair of jeans on today and they are all too big to wear in public! I guess I need to go shopping!
