Cool Brisk Morning

Sunday, July 28, 2013

What a morning to have a nice walk. It was cool and I woke early enough to walk before church or sunrise. I did a brisk sixty minutes with the peace and quiet of the morning and my thoughts. I love this!

It makes me question why I don't always do this! I know, the heat, lack of sleep, and complaining of being tired is too often my excuse, but when I actually do it, awesome. This is twice that I have gotten to do an early morning walk this week. If only I could sleep better, it could be an every morning thing.

I only got 6 hours sleep but when I woke and didn't go back to sleep right away I knew there would not be enough time to get a complete 90 minute cycle in before having to get up for church, so why not walk. SO glad I did!

I am slowing making progress but boy it seems really slow sometimes. I ask myself, "will I ever get these last 17 pounds off?" It took a year to get the first 30 off so I am guessing a year to get the last 17 off. I am or will soon hit a plateau if things go as usual but I can beat this thing! Baby steps, one at a time, consistency, determination. I guess I could put my personal stubbornness in there too. Those are the things I need to remember. Healthy living, healthy eating, healthy body, that is the goal.

    I love the walks in the morning also before the hustle of everyone being up. The cars and people making lots of noise. Versus the quite stillness of the air and maybe the first chirps of the birds. AH yeah I sleep in to :0
