the very good walk

Monday, July 27, 2015

Didnt get much sleep last night. Was up really late, and slept restlessly.
So when the clock went off at 630 to get ready to walk, I just couldnt get myself up. Had about 2 hours of sleep, so I decided to get what I could and slept til 830.
But I dont feel too bad about missing that walk because yesterday was a stellar day on the track.

My foot is alot better. Changing the inserts in my shoes has made a big difference and I walked longer yesterday.
I was sweating and I was loving it, I was all high on exercise endorphins and was driving around the little town on an early Sunday morning with Lynyrd Skynyrd turned up high lol.
Life can be good.
I walked the way I used to back when I was in weight loss mode.
I hope to get back there again.
I go back to the doctor on Aug. 3rd and I hope to be down at least another 2 lbs by then.
Who knows tho, I may have gained 4 because I havent been back on the scale.
I loathe and fear the scale.
I never know if I have really lost weight or not.
For awhile I felt like my clothes were starting to fit better, but now I dont know.
I started to go shopping Saturday, to the ONE store in our town that actually carries larger sizes but then I looked at all the clothes hanging in my closet and thought, YOU CAN BE WEARING THOSE IF YOU WORK HARDER!!!!
So, I didnt go shopping.
So, that is what I am going to try to do.
Grilled a nice steak yesterday and last night wanting something sweet, I reached for the cookie jar, had the lid off, had 2 oreos in my hand........then, I did the best thing and put them back.
Had myself a cafe latte greek yogurt instead and felt alot better about myself and my decision.
Still achy and tired from lack of sleep, and listening to the sounds of summer outside making me wonder if a walk will even be possible tonight.
But I am going to soak in a hot epsom salt bath this evening and hopefully sleep better tonight.

    Wow! You put the oreos back! Way to go! I struggled with them too this week. I went to the store and they were on sale and calling my name. I ran...away! If I brought them home I probably would have eaten the whole package by now! Triumph!

    glad the shoe inserts are helping! Here's to more good choices today!

    Glad you determined your shoe inserts were a factor with your walking. Get plenty of rest tonight and focus on healthy choices this week!
