skunks, greyhounds, and some sort of fungus???

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

That's what I smelled, saw, ran from, laughed about and pondered during my venture out this morning. Can you say "humid". Goodness.
I don't know if it's skunk mating season but my, my, they and their smells are out there. We have a greyhound rescue organization not too far from my house. They went INSANE when I went by. Sadly, that was my running interval- got them all stirred up! All eyes were on me!
I've driven by this mass of who knows what every time I drive to my sister's house. I got a close look today. Looks like some sort of interesting fungus. No, I did not touch.
Life progress:
Got my calendar out and scheduled my workouts. My appointments for a healthier me.
Reviewed my thankful list as I walk/ran today.
Signed up for a 5K- "fired up for a cure". Will run this in honor of my BFF.
Put on an actual clingy running outfit. I usually wear the pants but then a huge t shirt- like I'm hiding my size- LOL. I survived. Lots of cars went by but the only ones that stared at me were the greyhounds.
I discovered a new route. I went 6699 steps, 3.40 miles, burned 1057 calories. My fitbit has a really, really tall flower.
I am going for progress, not perfection. Thank you SP for helping me to not only be healthier but to develop a new attitude about how I want to live my life!!

    Wow! Good for you ... I think we have to get to the point where we just "feel" good in our skin and if other people comment - it's a bonus! Lookin' good to me! emoticon

    Woo Hoo! Lucky greyhounds got to see your outfit!

    It sounds like you are making some great progress. I'm working on the 5K thing again. I did it once so I know I can do it again. Thanks for sticking in there because I don't know what I would do if I came back here and you were gone!

    We have a rescue greyhound and have had two others. They are great dogs. And she loves our walks.
