A Tough Hike

Saturday, December 22, 2012

A week of crappy eating and a still 'troubled' left ankle/foot made for a tough 14 miles today.

Hiked the local mountains with one of my favorite hiking groups. Beautiful and tranquil views and a crisp 39 degrees when we started. It did warm up nicely though as the morning progressed.

Energy was a bit low, which I attribute to a week of eating more cookies and chocolate than I've probably eaten all year...

About halfway in the still injured foot went on strike. It's been about 6 weeks and there should be some improvement by now. Guess I'll have to make that doctor visit after all - after the holidays.

Happy Christmas to all.

    The cookies and candy are a weakness of mine, especially homemade. Thats why I limit a lot of baking during much of the year. Yup it sounds like getting your injury checked out is a good idea. Let us know what you find out.

    You know i've finally got my mind in the game. Then the holiday is upon me...cookies at work, can't resist baked goods....chocolates in my bag from a friend...just all the things on my naughty list coming to me at a single moment and me giving in. Your not alone but you know what? we have today. I sure hope your foot is better and you didn't crack it. Have a Merry Christmas my friend.

    I don't know what it is about this time of the year but every evening I groaningly get into bed thinking about how sorry I am over something I ate and every day I do it again because candy and cookies are my weakness and, even more, I'm not a perfect person (dang it all).
