Day 13: Luck of the Irish?

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Good Morning Spark People!

Well Today was an awesome morning so far. I kept tossing and turning since 5am this morning and finally got sick of it at 6am.

Things that awaited me this morning were:

6:30am-My friend Tony called and told me to go stretch even though I gave excuses about not being able to do my DVD yet.

6:37am-My husband rolled out of bed and put on his tennis shoes. Which made me put on mine. Then we went walking!

While I was walking I noticed I was having trouble breathing about 5 minutes in but I kept going.

Then I spotted something lime green!

I looked down and saw a four-leaf clover!

Apparently it means I have the luck of the Irish for the rest of my life?

Here is the Wiki:

(The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. According to legend, each leaf represents something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck)

If that wasn't a sigh I was on the right track... literally (See what I did there.) Then I am not sure what is.

I did 1 mile today in 17 minutes.

That means my speed was about 3.5 miles.

However my legs started to feel like jello about 5 minutes in with my lack of breathing. I kept pushing. It helps to have someone to walk with. However I think I would do just as well with some music.

Today my Zumba DVDs should be coming.

I am super excited. A friend is letting me borrow them.


So yes!! Happy Hump Day!!

Turn your Spark into a Fire!

Mine is slow going but I feel something waking up inside of me.

Going to tear up the roads one day!

    I am glad you got out there today and that your hubby went to. I never quite knew exactly what a four leaf clover meant, but I do love the concept. I think I'll get that as a charm for my bracelet. I was thinking about it, but now I am sure that is a charm I want to have.

    I walk with music or podcasts playing (cut the fat podcast to be exact). I totally understand your hesitancy to walk alone, but if you have good music to jam to maybe it won't bother you. You should give that a try next time you gotta go at it alone.

    Stay at this the iceberg may be big now, but we will keep chipping away at it and soon it will be nothing, but ice cubes for our water emoticon
