Home of an Emotional Idiot

While there were times when he wished he could roll back the clock and erase all the sadness, he had a hunch that if he did so, the joy would be diminished as well. And that was something he couldn't contemplate. (From At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks)

A Walking Fool

I am a walking fool today. During lunch, my boss and I walked around town. I'm not sure how far we walked but I'd guess it was about a mile. After work I skipped the gym and went up to the local ecology site where there is a track and I walked that by myself.

The ecology site is cool. There are swimming pools, a petting zoo and the track. There may even be more stuff there. It's been probably 7 years since I was last there though so I'm not sure. But that's not the point. The point is that, to my recollection, the track is a mile and a half long. There are some small hills and valleys and it's not oval like the track at a school. It makes it a little more interesting.

Anyway, I stuck to the outside of the track the entire way around and I tried to keep a pretty good pace (I made it around in exactly 20 minutes, I'm not sure if that's good or not but by next week maybe I can make it in 18). This was no stroll for me. It was the first day of actively reaching for my goal. Of course, I should have skipped the slice of white pizza and gone with a salad for lunch...

I didn't drink quite as much water today either. I was so nauseous yesterday that it made my time at the gym difficult, but not quite impossible, to complete. It didn't really matter today because I had the same feeling by the time I completed my walk anyway. Then again my head is pounding today. Someone needs to silence the little man with the hammer in my head!

I figure if I walk during lunch with my boss twice a week, go to the gym three times a week and walk at the ecology site two or three times a week, I should have no problem reaching my goal. Keep your fingers crossed for me though. As I've said in earlier posts, I've already lost a pretty significant amount so far this year so I'm a little bit afraid that my body won't allow me to reach this goal. But you'd better believe I'm going to push and do everything I can to reach it! Right now, it's the only thing that makes me feel better.

    That is really good that you're getting all that exercise. I have every confidence that you will reach your goal.
