Day 285

Friday, October 05, 2012

There was a mandatory driver's meeting @ 8:30 am. Finished up my bus route @ 8:00 am and knew what I'd do....some road work. I began walking, slipped into the 'meeting' just before it began. Meeting?? It was a full blown gut busting breakfast!!! Other drivers brought in all kinds of 'breakfast' food. Oh my should've seen it!! Here's the run down ~ HUGE biscuits & gravy; "breakfast" PIZZA; potatoes fried in bacon GREASE; some other dish full of cheese and I don't know what; chocolate something or other for 'dessert' I guess to mop up the fat from the breakfast dishes; 2 liter bottles of full sugar pop and OJ. Not so much as one clementine or orange or one bottle of water. I ate nothing!!!!!! There was a drinking fountain outside, so I managed to find a cup and filled it up with water from the bubbler!!! That was IT!! I was in stunned amazement that this is what some people actually eat for breakfast. Not one single, solitary heathy thing in the whole lot. Before SP I would've eaten the breakfast pizza, at least one piece. I'm SO glad I'm totally over it now. I just felt sorry & sad for all of them, for what they were unknowingly doing to their bodies. Clogging their arteries, making it so much harder for their hearts to pump, sapping their energy, stealing years from their lives...just for potatoes fried in bacon grease, biscuits & gravy and breakfast pizza.

When I got home I finished up the cardio walking. My foot felt much better today, so I did do the big hill again. This time it was nearly pain free going down and no problem going back up at all. Got in 8.5 miles today. Did 23 min. on the x-bike @ 31 mph this afternoon. Finished up a strength training session this evening - core; upper body.

Had boneless pork loin roast, baked potato & beets for dinner. It's been ages since we've had beets - they were SO good!!! We'll have to have them more often.

Thanks for stopping by today, if you were able to. Hope your Friday was wonderful and that you got a good workout in!! emoticon

    Had you on my mind the last 3 days. Went to a landscape watercolor workshop and the first 2 days were spent in the woods outside of Berea College campus. They own thousands of acres and have carved out a path that is every work-out level imaginable ....from easy to impossible except for the most experienced trail walkers. Cross country teams were using it for training when we were there. Well...I got lost from the class (came late) and walked for 3 hours trying to find the group. Yea me!!! You now impress me even more!!!

    What discipline! I can't imagine passing up all those breakfast foods. I'm still nibbling on the things I enjoy but in smaller portions because they aren't as healthy as they should be. Almost a shame you didn't realize it was a breakfast meeting; you could have made something healthy and delicious as a reminder that eating well doesn't have to mean boring and tasteless!
    Sounds like you had a great workout too. Good for you!
    Keep it going!
