Feeling grumpy today, but I didn't let that stop me. I made it to my appointment a little early then had to sit and wait for the doctor. Anyway... took Cooper for a long walk this morning, then walked without him before hopping in the car to go to my appointment. Came home and hopped on the stationary bike, then went out for a run. Almost 4 miles today. Okay, I think it is time for a rest day. Depending on the weather I might take my rest day tomorrow.
I think it is time to re-evaluate where I am in comparison to where I want to be. I think it is important to do that every once in a while. I am still working on losing the 20 pounds I gained over the Winter. I want to be more confident... about my body as well as when dealing with strangers. I have real issues when it comes to both. I am working at them both, but it is slow going. The loose skin on my legs is annoying, and I figure if I don't want to look at it then nobody else wants to see it either, which makes wearing shorts problematic. I can deal with capris, but running shorts are still outside my comfort zone. But my body does so much, I really need to learn to love it just the way it is. As for strangers, I am driving my mom places and end up dealing with a ton of strangers wherever we go. Also, when we go kayaking with various groups I meet interesting people, and have plenty of time to chat. (I still prefer paddling with only one or two other people.)
So, today's blog title isn't just about today, but about various things I want to improve in my life. Even on my grumpy days I am getting it done.
