Holy bananas batman!

Monday, October 07, 2013

Holy bananas batman! I'm in worse shape than I thought...have I ever got my work cut out for me! Finished eating my lunch today and still had 30 minutes left before I had to get back to work so I thought to myself...I'll take this opportunity to go walk my 30 minutes today.

Either my shoes are really REALLY bad (I was wearing my "dress" shoes instead of my good tennis shoes...bad me!) or I am super duper WAY out of shape!!! 20 minutes in I was "dying"...OY VAY! So I made myself walk one more block before I turned around to come pain no gain right?

    LOL funny you should ask...that's exactly what I was planning to do...had my shoes sitting on the bed all ready to take downstairs with me to go work, even had a pair of socks to take along just in case...and then left 'em. Went to work without 'em. Dang it! emoticon

Good news is I had probably 20 phone calls to make at work yesterday to get meetings scheduled and I got every one of 'em scheduled!!! Only had to leave one message, and he called me back and the meeting was scheduled by 4:00!!! Yea me!!! See what happens when the boss is out of the office for the whole day and I can actually get some work done?

    Can you leave a pair of shoes at work? That's what I did when I had to wear dress shoes. I love walking, it's a great way to spend extra time at lunch.

    Awww thanks guys! Yeah I try to have a sense of humor as much as possible...the way I look at matter what's going on in our world, we have two choices every morning...we can either whine and cry and bitch and moan (and basically push everybody away cuz who wants to be around a Negative Nancy) OR we can suck it up and be thankful we even woke up because I guarantee you somebody didn't and a lot of somebody's have things a lot worse than I do so who am I to complain? Besides, laughing and smiling causes less wrinkles than frowning...and what girl wants a bunch of wrinkles and frown lines on her face...NOT ME! emoticon

    You can do it! I laughed at this because I had the same experience last week when I went back to the gym for the first time in a year. I passed out in a cycling class ... emoticon !

The good news is that we'll get stronger every day. I'm excited to share the 5% challenge with you. You seem like you have an awesome sense of humor!

    What a wonderful idea. Great way to spend the remainder of your lunch time!

My sister, who is very wise, once told me when I was bemoaning the fact that I saw so many sparkers doing 3 hour workouts, eating tons of calories below their upper limit, etc. Her wise words to me were "can they do that for the rest of their lives?"

Getting out there for a short walk every day (or as often as you can) is an example of something that we *can* manage to do as often as possible.

    thank you! thank you! thank you! for all the support!!! this is exactly what I needed...I'm sure it was my shoes taking my walking shoes to work and leaving them (at least until Friday...since I'm gonna need 'em over the weekend right? emoticon )

Maybe today I'll be able to walk two extra blocks before turning back. Rome wasn't built in a day and I didn't get like this overnight...I'm not gonna lose it overnight either...but I'm DEFINITELY gonna lose it! emoticon

    Footwear can make a huge difference! Try bringing some good walking shoes (not tennis shoes). It'll make your tootsies feel much better! You've got the right idea, now just need to bring the right equipment!

    I am glad we have a walking path that is 3/4 of a mile around our building. I walk 2 laps everyday at lunch. Much more refreshing than my boring treadmill. emoticon
Great job on pushing your self!
