It's hot out. . . . no way to get around it, yesterday was the hottest day so far this summer, and today looks like a copy of it. Knowing how hot it was yesterday, and realizing that it was just too hot to go out for a walk, even if I waited until almost dark -- I knew if I wanted to get any exercise by "walking" I'd have to bite the bullet and get up early!
Temperature a lovely 71F - walked the 1.1-mile loop at a nice brisk pace -- it still took about 25 minutes though, due to all the potty stops! But it was worth getting up early.
I really ate healthy yesterday and even though I missed a day of walking, my body still lost 0.2 pounds, probably because I tried to move around fairly often during the day inside the house. Moving from activity to activity, cleaning, and watching what I ate all paid off. I LOST INSTEAD OF GAINED! And although we reached a high of 96 here yesterday, it's still better than the 115 they were suffering in Glendale! Whew! Is it fall yet?
