Challenge Day 29
Monday, October 21, 2019
Casey and I didn't get to walk until 10:20am BECAUSE my DD went to the ER last night for kidney stones. I have had kidney stones several times and know it is no fun at all. I got up from a sound sleep and went to her house to watch the kids last night. Got up and drove Natalie to school this morning on time and took DD's prescriptions to the pharmacy. I had to wait for the pharmacy to open and then wait an hour while they filled the prescription. I walked outside until they opened and then walked in the air conditioning while it was being filled. So I already have 10,647 steps, 4.9 miles, this morning.
Sure am glad this challenge is only a 10 minute commitment. I can walk 10 minutes even in the sun, even when tired, even when I have lots to do, so Casey and I got our challenge walk completed. We got a bit sweaty, but overall enjoyed the outing.
I am feeling quite motivated to live a good healthy life today. Per Garmin I just got 5 hours and 22 minutes of sleep last eve and I know fatigue is an eating trigger for me. Perhaps I can take a nap before school is out. I will get the kids after school and take Gwen to piano lesson. I can face the junk food in our house without resorting to eating it. I know that any energy I get from overeating or making bad choices is just a very short term fix with a huge long term downside!
