I've got the "SPARK"
Sunday, August 11, 2019
Today I awoke at 4:30. I had hoped to fall back to sleep however my brain just started going crazy with past memories (good, bad and stressful times) and I could not get it to shut off.
After tossing and turning for well over and hour, I decided it was best to get up.
I puttered around the house for 2 hours then decided I was getting out for a power walk. I took my smallest of 4 dogs "Turbo Tyson" we call him and we went for a 2 mile.... half hour power walk.
Good for the two of us. With my plantar fasciitis in both feet now, it is very painful after power walking but I am not going to let that stop me any more. I soak the feet and massage and exercise them after and by morning I will be ready to go again.
I didn't stop at just the 2 mile walk . After returning home and having breakfast I decided to go mall walking. I didn't have the right shoes on so had to return home and get my running shoes with orthotic inserts on. I then decided to take 2 of my smaller dogs power walking and we went to my trail for a 3 mile power walk. After dinner I took my big dog and we went 2 miles. I got in 8 miles in total and am very pleased with myself.
I feel that "spark" that one gets when they accomplish a goal. I felt it before I even started my day and I am looking forward to developing that sparked feeling every day.
Have to start slow (I used to power walk 8 miles in one walk) but slow and steady always wins.
Nutrition was spot on and got my 8 cups of water in today as well as more liquid with 20 ounces of tea (no sugar)
Tonight I feel tired but it is a "sparked tired" and it feels good.
