OK, so we walked 20 min...not amazing, but not bad either. I had ordered new shoes a few weeks ago (they came the day I went out of town for work), so I decided to wear them, and they need to be broken in a bit (or else I just laced them too tight). But, lucky for me, whether it was 20 min or 2 hrs, my dog is now content to just sit by my feet while I type.
I am just feeling a bit...adrift? I'm not sure how else to phrase it. My job isn't as social as my old job was (I was a teacher, so I was hardly ever alone throughout the day!). I thought I would enjoy that aspect of it, but now I realize it is kind of lonely going into the office and not having anyone to talk to (which is part of why I like to work from home most days; that, and working in pajamas is nice...).
I am thinking about going back to Jenny Craig; I signed up for it in November (and paid for a full year membership), but quit in April because I couldn't afford the food every week. I would be able to afford the food now, but I am not sure if it's "worth" it; I lost about 20lbs in the first few months, then bounced back and forth within the same 5lbs for 2 months. I actually enjoyed the food (there were some things I didn't care for, but most things tasted great). And now that my schedule is more flexible, I don't have the excuse of having "no time" to eat during the day, then binge eating at night. I think I'll look through my old program booklets and think on it some more before I recommit; I want to be in it for the long haul.
