I have so been enjoying my walks. I have more energy and feel better. I'm doubtful that I've lost weight yet, it has only been six days, but I sure do feel different. Today would be day seven but it is raining and chilly and I have to go to work soon. Maybe I can go this evening. I have had trouble sticking to exercise routines the past few years, so I'm hoping this will be the change I need.
My routine has been to take Lucy for a quick walk around the neighborhood, then drop her off and pick up my music and water. I can't manage all three and she starts and stops too much and would tire out too fast to jog with me.
I have learned that I need music, and the right music to get me jogging and keep me going. I'm working on getting some new stuff on my ipod. I have also learned that I need to go out and back, not around a track or the neighborhood as I did yesterday under threat of rain.
Lucy is wondering when we will go for our walk.
Roberta is just being lazy as usual.
I had the last two days off and I did and didn't do much. Grocery shopping is done, and that is a huge accomplishment these days. I took my walks and worked on my workout music list. I went thrift shopping yesterday and scored some new jeans for work and a few tops. I also got dinner on the table two nights in a row, which is a big feat. So nothing spectacular, just the normal day to day stuff.
With the weather cooling down it is starting to feel like fall. We have had a couple of cool downs but so far have been right back to the hot days. Everywhere I look, especially at work people are all about Pumpkin candles, Pumpkin Lattes, Pumpkin foods, and Pumpkins for their porches. I'm not quite there yet. Don't get me wrong, I love Fall and am so ready for it to be here, but I don't want to rush through it. I am ready for a fall vegetable garden and went looking for plants yesterday with no luck. Growing things in Texas is so much easier in the milder months and I want to take advantage of that this year.
Have a wonderful weekend!
