High on Life
Tuesday, May 24, 2011
I am so excited about my exercise this Monday and Tuesday. First off Monday... I went for a walk around a park called "Lincoln Woods". It is 2 1/2 miles long, very hilly and you are surrounded by nature. I did this same walk last week in one hour but yesterday I completed the walk in 50 minutes. I was so excited that I wanted to do the round again... but common sense prevailed. I wouldn't have wanted to overdo it!!!
Tuesday (today) I had planned a 15 minute walk with my friend. At the last minute she wasn't feeling well... so instead of using that as an excuse to go enjoy the sunny day and read outside... I decided to walk what is known in Providence as the "BLVD". It is 3.2 miles long (an actual 5K) I got out of my car, put on my headphones and began walking. Once again I got into the walk. Before you knew it I was finished. In 1hour 10 minutes. I am not sure what kind of time that it... other than slow... but I managed to walk that length of time without stopping.
Tomorrow is my yoga day... Beginners Class but it is 90 minutes long... I am on my way to a terrific week.
I have been drinking my smoothies every morning... I have cut out sweets and don't eat after dinner. I need to learn to eat 6 meals though which I find very difficult.
But being so high on life today is a motivating factor that I know will help me move on!!!
