So far for the week of August 30 to the September 3rd.. I have walked/ ran 8 miles. I went walking this morning for 2 1/2 -3 miles with my girlfriend Steph which was a random thing to do since I was in a dress and had formal sandals on. Yay me! Planning on hitting the treadmill once my son gets down for his nap… hopefully that will be soon. So far the most difficult thing ironically isn’t the exercising that is so difficult but the sweet tea addiction I have… if sweet tea were cocaine.. well I wouldn’t be alive.
It doesn’t help me that I have a husband who doesn’t exercise and his only idea of a workout is the clicking of his computer mouse or walking to the fridge for a beer. I made the choice to marry him because he doesn’t exercise… think that’s because I have a narcissistic father who obsesses over weight and working out more than the vainest women I know. ( Sorry Dad but its true, you are a primadonna when it comes to your looks .. and when I say this.. I am referring to your back street boy hair days when you would get your hair highlighted blond) However, kudos to my father who runs 100 mile marathons on a regular basis. I have the goal of just being able to run 5 miles right now. Think I’ll stick to that goal.
I haven’t weighed myself thus far.. just trying to take it one day at a time… maybe next week will be the week to weigh in. Either way.. this week as a diabetic has been difficult because I made Charleston chocolate chip cheese cake, not good for the hips. I have to somehow stop my baking habit… anyone got any tips on that? Oh and has anyone else noticed how the Step Out and Walk people, automatically sign you up for their 5k every year after you have completed one walk? Hmmm.. like a message that comes in the mail to diabetics yearly to remind us to get off our assess and walk for once…. atleast for once a year. Here’s to walking our asses off in a few weeks!
