I’d also like to thank Lana Del Rey for soundtracking my walk.

I need to get my walk in for the day. I’m watching the kids at 5 so my parents, sister, and brother-in-law can go to the Red Sox game tonight ( yea I’m jealous). I was thinking I could wait till later tonight when it’s a little cooler but my niece will be in bed by 7 so that wont really work.
In other news I just found out I’m going straight from NH to The Cape. I’m very excited to have 6 days off and be able to relax. I grew up spending 3-4 weeks in NH at my grandparents summer house and now my aunt owns it and I’m going with my cousin. It will be strange to go for the first time after both my grandparents have passed but I’m really looking forward to it.
OK enough rambling I’m going to hydrate up and attempt a good walk.
Well I did. I ate it at 9:00 this morning. My sister texted me at 5 am saying her unit was closed so she got cut so I didn’t need to watch the baby. I proceeded to get back into bed and sleep forgetting to set my alarm. I was woken up to gooooing and gaaahing and a latte with a donut. I don’t know why I ate it I could have said no but I didn’t. I felt sick after eating it and now it’s almost 4 and I still haven’t eaten anything else today. I really know I need to eat something else so maybe see if there are any bananas left.
I just went for a 3 mile walk. I’m sweaty and gross and I love it. I’m also wearing a grey shirt and when I got a half mile into my walk I almost turned around because I didn’t want people to see I was sweating but shoot why do I care what others think? I don’t.
We walked there 1.5 miles and another 1.5 miles home. That was my exercise for the day and to top it off 2 out of the 3 miles I was carrying my 4 year old niece and I could feel myself struggling more.
I went on the carousel twice with my niece and it was really kind of fun. My parents got hot dogs and fries and I had none. My sister and my niece got fried dough and ice cream and I didn’t have any. I was really kind of proud. This carnival is a big thing in my town the firefighters put on a firework show friday and saturday and pretty much everyone goes. When I was growing up this was the week we would spend in NH with my grandparents so I never really went so it was kind of cool to go. I did see someone I graduated h.s with and she told me I was looking great. I’m probably a good 40 pounds down since h.s ( which was 6 years ago) but I’ve been at this weight for awhile so it was kind of nice. It reminded me I did it once and lost a good amount of weight and I still have a lot to go and I CAN do it.
Just got back from a 30 minute 2 mile walk. I know most of you are like 30 minutes for 2 miles is nothing but for me that’s something. I remember doing a 30 minute mile when I first started. It is also 96 degrees out and the route I walk that is normally shady is no longer shady because they cut back the trees. I’m glad I put sunblock on before I ventured out I could feel my skin burning. Anyways I’m treating myself to some gatorade. I don’t normally drink it because I have high blood pressure and my dr. told me not to but I have a craving for it don’t ask me why. I’ll only drink half of it.
Sorry for the awkward face spam.
That includes the two times I had to stop to wait for the cross walk light to say walk. Not too bad I wasn’t even trying to go fast or anything just walking to get a starting point and see how if I can get my time down.
I went up to the track and there were a good amount of people up there so I walked back down to the street and just did a mile. I feel like I’m in the way and all awkward if there are people on the track running and I’m just walking. My foot didn’t really hurt too much during and after the walk. Hopefully it doesn’t hurt tomorrow.
I’m going to make my dinner for work tomorrow and try and get to bed early tonight. I’ve been taking my medicine way to late and then not falling asleep at a good time so tonight I’m not letting myself take it past 8:30!
I walked up to the track and saw the kids doing their 20 minute mile so I turned around and decided I’d go up later tonight which might be better anyways because it was kind of humid.
I remember being in h.s and having to do the 20 minute mile. I had a knee injury from soccer in middle school and to this day my knee will randomly pop out and kind of turn. It’s weird and gross and I’m sure if I lost weight it wouldn’t happen as much or maybe not happen at all. Any way we had to do a jogging mile in 20 minutes and if you didn’t do it the first time you had to go out and retry until you did it in 20 minutes or you didn’t pass gym( I don’t know if they really ever failed anyone for not doing it in 20 minutes). Also if you started walking you had to redo the mile another time. I remember being even bigger than I am now (not sure of my weight but I was in my size 22/24 pants) and walking out to the track and just looking at my gym teacher and I thought I was going to cry. I knew I couldn’t do a mile in 20 minutes heck I knew I couldn’t even jog 20 seconds. My teacher knew it and she took me aside and told me I had to sit this day out because of my knee( my knee had popped out two weeks before while playing kick ball in gym). I swear I could have hugged her right there she told me to walk slowly if I wanted or sit on the bleachers. Tonight I’m going to go up to that same track and walk a mile and time myself. Fingers crossed I can do it in 20 minutes. I know a 20 minute mile sounds ridiculously slow to most of you but for me that will be a big accomplishment.
I love getting things done. Not that sounds like a lot before 11 am but taking a shower is a 45 minute thing so its good for me. I haven’t gone on a good walk in awhile. Shoot not even going to lie I haven’t been walking that much at all but I feel so good after I don’t know why I keep slacking and not going.
Hope everyone has a great day!
So I decided I had to go for a walk outside today it was cloudy but I threw my phone and ipod in a zip lock baggies then threw it in my sweatshirt. I noticed a lot of cars parking on my street and by the time I got to the end of my driveway I noticed the main road I walk on was filled with cars parking everywhere. It turns out today the Special Olympics is begin held up at the high school which is the street behind my house. I live on a private street and someone actually called the cops to have people ticked! I told the cops everyone who was parked in front of my house I knew and gave them permission to park there. I also let people park in my driveway. Anyway back to the walk so I got about half a mile down the street and that took me 20 minutes because cars were parked everywhere and people were walking to the high school with chairs and strollers and it was just no good. I decided to turn around because it was starting to rain. I was pretty disappointed but I felt like I was just in the way and making the police mans work harder. I have to work at one so I wont be able to get back out there but something is better than nothing right?
OH and my headphones broke so that stinks too.
