It's a Real Live Start
Saturday, February 01, 2014
I don't know why I've been so blocked when it comes to exercise. My history remembers that I really love it when I do. I've INTENDED to start for several months now, but I am a master at talking myself out of things I don't want to do.
I logged my first mile and a half yesterday. I did NOT die. In fact, I enjoyed it very much. My son and I greeted the sunrise and had a good talk. I took my camera and took some shots of the frozen puddles and more of my favorite freckled face. As far as my virtual walk to my longed-for hometown, I made it from my house to the edge of this town. My only big news is that, since it's been awhile, I'm no longer acclimated to our sub-freezing temperatures (it was 23), but that will come in time.
I'll go around twice today (2.14 miles). I'll take my guy and not my dog.
I've been pretty confused about what commitments, or even efforts, I need to make nutritionally. I am the queen of the all-or-nothing mentality, so I have a hard time just cutting back moderately. I want to eat less sugar. That's for sure. But I need to make adjustments I can live with. I wonder if I should give up wheat (if anyone has a thought on this, I'd love to hear) because of all of the recent talk about how bad it is for us. Is this a real thing or just the latest fad? But the thought of feeding a picky family on a budget with no sandwiches or pasta...
I guess, until I figure it out, I'll just track what I do eat.
Okay. On to my birthday weekend! I'm feeling high hopes for this year in my life.
