Pride Goeth Before the Fall and The Streak Goes On ....( Days 9 &10)

Monday, October 11, 2010

Yesterday got away from me and before I knew it, dark was fast approaching. Driving out to get my Sunday paper, I saw the sliver of the moon judt before it set! Beautiful!

I parked at the library and started my walk in the dark. Why I didn't take my flash or headband light I'll never know. I walked along to the soiuth of the lake and into a small neighborhood........ On the way back, I needed to cross a divided street and fell onto the median which had a higher curb than I realized. I ended up with road rash on one knee, a bruise on the other! I jammed the ring finger of my right hand and broke the rest of my fall with my chin. Feeling very sorry for myself and VERY clumsy I went to a nearby grocery store for first aid.

I walked back to my car, went home and relaxed with a real beer! Today, the only thing that hurt was my finger!

Today I went to Curves and then on a daylight walk to a nearby St Paul water/lake system. Getting out of the car to start the walk, I saw my first pellican ever, I think! The lake system is part of the midwestern flyway. A wonderful walk, kicking thru leaves and enjoying the lake system. This walk was an out and back walkretracing my steps; a total of 61 minutes.

I came home and logged my food, and the streak is going 10 days strong!

When I read this, I couldn't believe it. You are so fortunate that you didn't have a real serious fall. You are doing an awesome job on yourself and I am impressed with what you do.
Just take care of your self and watch those curbs,it reminded me about the woman I walk with hit a curb and fell- right into 36 loves of bread. The bread man had just sat them down on the ground, smashed some bread but didn't get hurt.
Thank you for sharing this.

    I hate falling, when walking when it is dark out I walk with extra care because I love walking in the dark and not the light. I fell over the summer and still have a deep scar on my knee and have trouble bending it. I fell so hard and gouged out my whole knee. It took like two months to heal, but, I still walk in the dark. You did just great. Good for you. The beer was a great soother. You have such a great attitude. Have more of a marvelous day. emoticon emoticon

    I'm so glad you're okay! Beer, of course, can be the best first aid sometimes!

Love pelicans! I felt so bad about the oil-soaked ones at the Gulf.

    Sorry about the fall... it sounds so like... me! I'm famous (or infamous) for not picking up my feet... mom used to holler at me for it when I was a kid. So, yeah, I can totally identify!

You're doing great. Good for you for picking yourself up, dusting yourself off, and going walking in the sunshine! emoticon emoticon

    It is always scary to walk after dark. As others have said, please be VERY careful. I am glad that you were close to someplace that could help with First Aide.

    Those falls are never fun -- even when they turn out to be minor in the long run.

However, it sounds like you are doing great.

Day 8 of Sunny's Streak in Progress

Saturday, October 09, 2010

For Saturday, 10/09/10.

I went to Curve's and did my normal workout. Next door, I checked in for Gold's Gym Extreme Makover seminarand marked my seat with a water bottle. emoticon Since I was early for that, I jumped emoticonon a treadmill and got in 23 mins of aerobic walking. emoticon (It was in the 80's again!)

By the way, I packed my lunch becausse the seminar wouldn't end until 4 PM. I ate that during the lecture break, emoticon emoticon lean turkey on a thin with tomatoes and an apple.

The lecture over, I headed to the library to read the newspaper before it closed at 5 PM. After it closed, I got another 40 mins of aerobic walking through town and along the lake. emoticonToo hot to go really fast.

Overall I got in 11364 steps, 12 vigorous minutes, and 6.43 miles. I logged all my food.
