I jogged and it was hard

Monday, August 29, 2011

I jogged this morning. It was hard. My husband teased me because the alarm went off and I groaned in that whiney I don't want to get up way. Then bitched about having to find my jogging clothes because I forgot to set them out last night. Then grunted at him when he said good morning. Then grunted/groaned when I stood up and stared at the door after I put on my shoes. He reminded me that tomorrow will be easier.

I jogged 2 miles. I made sure it was on the flat part of my neighborhood. It was still hard. But I kept talking myself through it:
"Dude, only (time) to go. Keep at it."
"Look at that guy jog. You could be like that."
"If you keep going, you can borrow Niner on Friday." (Niner is my brother's dog)
"So you're going a minute slower than normal. You're still going faster than all those people asleep right now."
"Adjust your posture and breathing will be easier."
"I wonder if the husband will have coffee ready."
"When you finish jogging today, you can have scrambled eggs and a banana."

...And on, and on, and on. It was still hard. But I did it.

My skin is almost back to normal. Only a couple of spots of grossness left. Amazing how 2 days of Paleo eating has helped clear that up. Today was healthy eating. Husband didn't care for the tapenade I made for the top of the steak, but I thought it was good. I'll bring it to work with me tomorrow and add it to my turkey wraps. Maybe I'll share it with my coworkers too. I'll just need to pick up some chips/bread or something for them.

OK, tomorrow's plan is weights.
