IDEA - Day 22: Day of rest and contemplation
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
I took today off because my calf muscles weren't very happy with me. I don't know if it was the jogging or doing C25K Week three two days in a row; but, it wasn't a good time in my house this morning. I still packed up my gym bag like I might run, but by 10AM I knew I would neither have time for lunch nor be in physical shape to run.
So, when I did finally take a break from work today I took a walk through Market Square and got an ice cream cone. I still stayed within my calorie bounds, but it was a wonderful treat.
I'm currently reading the happiness project - a book about a woman's attempt at improving her happiness over the course of a year. Sometimes it grips me, sometimes I just have to skip entire chapters because they don't apply and that fact is kind of depressing.
To have my mopey moment for today - I can't say I'm the girl who will claim to love being single and profess that I don't want to date / be in a relationship. I just have no social skills and I'm shy in social situation. It terrifies me to go to bars or clubs or whatever. I just freeze up and shake.
As you can imagine it's hard to meet people that way.
Maybe when I'm down more pounds I'll have more confidence.
For now I'll be the lady with the dog and the house, it's cool.
One step at a time.
