Whoa. I had one great walk this morning.
Started out at 5:15. Wore my new shoes. Felt good.
Depending on my route, about 2 miles from the start of my walks I can be on campus at a small, private, liberal arts college. This summer as a favor to a friend, I have been stopping in and checking freezers. (Two summers ago one of her freezers went out, and the cafe being closed for the summer, no one noticed until it was too late. Really, really too late.) Since it's so close, I volunteered to stop by 4-5 times a week and check to make sure everything's running. 6 freezers, - 1 walk-in style, one commercial ice machine, 7 refrigeration units. Doesn't take long, all I have to do is open doors and poke things. But.
I'm ok with the first 4 freezers, frozen raw muffins, raw cookies, breads and vegetables don't really tempt me. But freezer # 5? Homemade pumpkin Whoopie Pies - individually wrapped - filled with homemade maple walnut ice cream. I open the freezer and there they are, sitting right at eye level. Been doing well this summer, have only given in once. And it was swoon-able good.
Today I resisted again.
I'm so proud.
I slugged down 8 oz of water, and moved the whoopie pies behind some edamame and sun dried tomatoes, where they'll be safe. I don't know why it took me so long to think of that move.
