Today was a little warmer than the past couple days here in Michigan and by that I mean it was in the 30's, the sun was a shining and the wind wasn't blowing! I had a busy morning, but told myself when I got home that I really needed to take advantage of the natural Vitamin D and head outside for awhile. I prefer being outdoors, especially when I want to get some exercise in.
I love the dirt road I live on. It's so nice to walk on. Low traffic and you almost always see wildlife. I love country living! Can't wait till Spring so everything comes alive. It's so dreary out right now.
It started out a little chilly. I was dressed in yoga Capri pants, a tank top and a sweatshirt. I had to pull my hands up inside my sleeves for the first half mile or so, but once I got moving I warmed right up!
Gotta wear shades.......
Not sure exactly how far and how quickly I was moving because I am having phone issues right now and my phone shut off (yes, it does that randomly throughout the day and it's super fun, insert sarcasm) about half way through and I lost my Map My Run Data! :(
So I can't call myself strictly a walker or strictly a jogger since I do both right now. It feels natural to jog after I have walked a bit and warmed up, but I can't run much more than a half mile at a time right now. So today while I was out walking and jogging I decided that I would just say WOG instead of walk/jog! Yes, I talk (sing along to my music) while I wog, doesn't everybody? Maybe it will catch on and everyone will start saying it, but probably not. I'm a dork!
I was proud of myself today because there is this pretty big hill that I usually walk up but I was already jogging and I told myself I was going to jog up it today and I did! It burned and hurt, but felt really good!
So all in all I had a great day. Got some exercise in and ate really well. Although, I will tell you that I had to stare at the evil temptation of cake tonight! I am Emily's Daisy Scout leader and we had a meeting tonight. It was one of the girl's birthdays today and she brought cake and cupcakes. I love me some cake ( and doughnuts and brownies), like seriously have a hard time turning it down. I did great at the meeting but somehow ended up bringing the leftover cake home, thanks to my beautiful daughter Emily. I served her a piece tonight and it smelled so good. I ended up taking one bite and that was all I had. It took a ton of willpower to not devour the entire cake! I had some fruit and am feeling pretty good! Now, if my hubby doesn't eat the rest or have a piece, I will be throwing the rest in the trash. I can't be trusted with it tomorrow. I won't try to eat it if it has been in the trash. ;)
Doesn't it look sooooo good??
Let's see how the weekend goes, it's usually my hardest with eating. Just taking it one meal at a time, one day at a time....
