I did it - part 2

Monday, February 11, 2013

Ok - so I walked again this morning - sometime around 9:30 am. Beautiful morning - breezy. Took the same path and then tried the new path. Only walked 30 min (my legs were really tired) - came home and had breakfast.

Don't know what happened but about an hour later I could not keep my eyes open - felt so exhusted but I fought it because I had to take my son to work at 1 - I didn't get over this exhustion until sometime in the middle of the afternoon. What the heck!!!?? I thought excercising was good for you - not supossed to make you sleepy. That was the only thing I did - take a 30 min walk - hummmmmm

One of my messages talked about goals and I do have them - not to best my walking steps each day but for more than that (maybe I'm over reaching too soon). The park that I go to is 1 1/2 miles from my home that I CAN walk to - that is my first goal - to walk out of my home - to the park - around the park - then home again (I'm guessing that would probably total 4 miles) - my next goal would be to walk farther - like to the corner store (probably about 3 miles 1 way). But for now I'm content to build up my stanima by walking in the park - the rest will be there when I'm ready (maybe this year - maybe next)

Will I walk tomorrow - probably not - I have a full day between 9 and 9 but probably will Wednesday morning weather willing.

Anywho - I hope I haven't missed anyone who left me messages and encouraged me - thank you to you all! Sometimes I think I'm in this by myself until I see that I'm not.

    Keep up the good work, Patti! You can do it. If you can't do what you would like to do right now because you are too busy, do some smaller form of exercise. Do 10 minutes of walkaerobics, stationary bike, treadmill or some other form of exercise. If you make exercise a daily habit even 10 minutes or whatever you have time for. You will be happy that you did it . Your body will like it too.

    We all have our ups and downs. Our bodies get crazy. Sometimes after a 30 minute run I feel like I could just go right back to bed. Sometimes I let myself..if I don't have anything to do. LOL so not very often.

    Hve a good walk!
