Ouch – that’s gonna leave a mark

T Minus not very long until I leave for Hotlanta to meet up with Shannie and LLL.   I still have 5 more pounds to lose by then and let’s just say my motivation hasn’t been there.  I have been MEANING to get to the gym but things have just been crazy for us.

 

So after I dropped Avery at school this morning I decided to go for a walk.  I downed my energy drink, popped on my IPOD (complete with new headphones since mine are nowhere to be found and the crappy ones that come with the IPOD don’t work) and started out.  I wasn’t really sure where I was headed so I just started walking…and walking…and walking.  Then I decided to stop and see a friend of mine.   I visited for a few mintues.  I must have looked awful b/c she did offer me a ride home…but I declined.  My rear end was shrinking – I could feel it with every step – so I decided to tough it out.  I guess I hadn’t really realized how FAR from home I was…UNTIL – I walked out of her house and had serious gumby legs.  And I thought SHIT – I still have to walk all the way back home.  (I later drove the route to see just how far I had gone – 4 miles). 

 

It felt really good and I had forgotten how much I enjoy walking.  The weather is perfect and I have the time to do it.  So why not? 

 

But tomorrow it’s gonna hurt!

    At first, I thought you wrote you ‘pooped” on your Ipod because I was looking through the wrong part of my glasses!
    Good for you 4 miles! The last time I ran 8 miles, I almost started crying when I was finished because i was training for a 1/2 marathon and the idea of running another 5 miles was unbearable!
    THREE WORDS-EPSOM SALTS BATH!
