Sometimes you just have to mix up your exercise routine a little. So you want to know what I did today? I walked my entire route backwards. I mean, I didn't walk backwards. I walked frontwards. But I walked the route backwards of the route I usually walk.
This is my version of being wild and crazy. R is laughing hysterically at me as he reads this. So is EG.
Anyway, it's a tiny thing, but it did make a difference. I'm a serious creature of habit. And I've gotten to know my walking route so well, I could probably do it with my eyes closed. But today I felt like I needed to mix it up a little.
So, I started at the end and worked toward the beginning. And it was kind of cool that during the parts where I'm usually exhausted, I was fresh and energetic. At the part where I'm usually thinking, "Oh Lord, I've only just begun, and my legs hurt already," today I was thinking, "Wow, I can't believe I'm almost finished!"
It gave me a little extra push, and you know what I ended up doing? I added one more little "leg" to my walk and did more than I've done in years. It felt good.
Most Awesome Walking Song I Heard Today:
"Do you know what I wanna do? Do you KNOW what I wanna DO?! Strut."
I consider writing blip-its about myself a form of torture, but can talk about my interests, plans, dreams, and ideas for hours. I'm 37 years old, hapily married and mother to one human child and two dogs. My life, career, and eating habits are ever-evolving. I would like to lose about 30+ pounds and still be able to enjoy food and life.
I'm 41 years old, single, and I live with two dogs and two cats. I'm experimenting with semi-vegetarianism and recently gave up diet soda. I work from home, hate sports, love junk food, and would like to lose about 50 pounds. And win the lottery.
