I woke up this morning and as planned, I went jogging. I am so proud for a couple of reasons. One, I haven't been jogging since June 8 so it's been a while. I had work things and then we went on vacation so I haven't had the time to go in the morning and afternoon/evenings are too hot. Texas summers. Second reason I am so proud, I had to take the kids in the jogging stroller with me. When I bought the stroller, I thought I'd love it. I could jog with the kids and thought that would alleviate the guilt I felt from taking time away from them to spend on myself. It didn't take me long to realize that I hate jogging with them! They are so distracting and difficult. Plus I need that time to myself. It is my stress reliever. I can't just jog and get lost in my mind when they are arguing or whining. Anyways, I jogged with them so I pushed at least 50 pounds while jogging which made it even more challenging. Even with those two challenges against me, I still made it on my old route. I jogged my normal route and walked my normal time. No extra walking! I definitely had to push it and mentally talk myself through it but I made it!
Eating has been good today...so far. Dinner is yet to be decided so we'll see. I've already had 8 cups of water. Good day!
