I am slow.
I walk slower than almost anyone else at the track. Sometimes I question why this is, since I have been walking pretty regularly for almost 4 years now.
But I am just a turtle.
To me, I feel as though I am walking pretty fast. But people still lap me and get way out ahead of me. I guess I take babysteps too literally.
But it doesnt bother me all that much. I just have to tell myself, my legs are much shorter than most of theirs. I carry alot more weight than some of them.
But, some of them are much older than me.
I guess it is just my destiny to be the worlds slowest, or maybe second runner up, walker.
Today, I clocked my second mile of the morning.
And this is my best time, since I have been keeping score that is.
I started using a tracker app about 4 months ago. There may possibly have been times when I did a mile in less time, but I didnt track it.
I feel good about this time. Walking, I know I can do better and in time, hopefully, I will.
I have had a really good week. Even the weekend wasnt so bad, I didnt go out anywhere to eat, except for a baby birthday party, where yes I did have a piece of cake.
But I have done really good.
I am watching closely my calories, and planning meals around protein and trying to stay on track with carbs, fiber, etc.
I have walked every morning this week, yesterday, I walked 3.4 miles.
and again this morning I walked 3.
And then I went and walked another half hour this evening.
I have a goal, to lose 2 lbs this week. and if I reach it, great, if not, I will be deeply disappointed, because this week I have done better than I have in a long time.
That really is a babystep.
