New Shoes and a New Outlook
Saturday, March 15, 2014
Well I've been slacking for 3 solid days now. That snow on Wednesday really threw me for a loop and I've had a hard time recovering. I've been sleepy from lack of exercise and then today I was somewhat depressed. It looked like rain this morning but instead it - of course - snowed again. DH and I drove into town to pick up the mail and we talked about it. He has a terrible time in winter because of the lack of sunshine (he drives in to work in the dark and home again in the dark). His only exercise is his lunchtime walk but he has been so busy this week that he hasn't been able to walk either. I haven't gotten to take a long walk since Tuesday. That's it! I was feeling depressed because I haven't gotten in my usual exercise amount. So today my daughters took me up to Lansing to get a new pair of running shoes for my upcoming birthday and we walked around in the mall too. I feel better. I'm excited about the running shoes, my first bought exclusively with running in mind instead of just walking. I also got a new running bra and by the time we left the fitness store I was feeling pretty good. I ran around inside the store to try out numerous shoes before selecting the final pair and it felt good. My oldest DD was thrilled that I'm running again.
So far I haven't gotten in all my steps but the evening is still young. I've got a new battery in my FitBit and a new season of Perry Mason to keep me company. Tomorrow I am off to check on my stream.
