Friday, November 30, 2012

I decided to go for a walk outside today, and went a different route. Instead of trails, I walked on the streets, and headed west. It is about 40, but I wore sweatpants, a long sleeved shirt, and a T-shirt over that with a windbreaker, plus a hat and gloves, and set off. I just kept on walking, and when I made a huge circle. At the halfway point, I stater wondering if I had walked to far, and was thinking it would have been smart to bring a phone, but I still felt great, so just continued on, and after a little over 3 hours, I got back home. I put the route into my trackers, and it says 10.15 miles.

I haven't walked this far in years, and it is double what I do most days. I am a little tired now, but cooking lunch, and then going to take a nap. I stayed up late last night ( 3 AM ), and got woke up at 9:30. I was watching the end of a movie.. Hereafter, with Matt Damon. I think I missed the first 20 mins or so, and now need to see them. I didn't plan to watch more than a few minutes, but it was good.

I achieved half of my goals for November. I did lose 8 lbs, and Sparked every day, which considering I was in hospital is amazing. I was online Saturday morning, and Sunday night after being released. However 2 meals at the hospital were " cheats ", and that put me over 3 this month. Plus the week before I went in hospital, I was having breathing difficulty, and didn't exercise every day. I set 4 new goals for December

1) Exercise 1 hour a day
2) lose 5 lbs
3) Spark every day
4) NO cheats.

Today, I had 6 eggs for breakfast, instead of 4, but my throat is sore a bit, so I am going to switch my beef to chicken, and just cook up 8 thighs( 2 lbs ) for lunch/dinner. That leaves me 6 calories below my range, but I think it'll average out.

Tonight my brother is working, so i will just be watching basketball, and relaxing, reading The Silmarillion. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

    Great job on the walk, that is brilliant, the most I have got up to is 4.5 miles and it was chucking down with rain, my poor dog sulked for weeks lol.
I like your goals for December, I m going to set myself some as well.
Getting to grips a little bit better with the carbs but still finding it hard as I am a real carb lover, think it worse than trying to get rid of a sweet tooth!!!!!
Keep up the good work, look forward to catching up with you again.
Take care.

    Great job on the walk! Now you know that you can do it, frankly I think you can do a lot more than that if you can play basketball for 90 minutes. emoticon emoticon emoticon
