berryblondeboys, thank you for the link, will head on over there and check it out
Yesterday was the first time in a LONG time I had made a deliberate attempt to go outside walking...
Here in the desert boonies, at 5.30 in the morning, it's incredibly easy to lose track of time. It wasn't my intentions to walk very far or even for a long period of time for that matter so I was pretty surprised as I reach my front gate to learn that I had been walking for a full hour.
Just out of curiosity, and after resting for a while with my coffee in hand :P, I decided to jump in the truck and drove along the route I had just walked to measure my exact mileage using the trucks odometer.
I was pretty stunned to drive into my driveway and look down to see my odometer reading 2.7 miles.
Let me tell ya...this morning I was feeling it, lol.
I've been walking around like an old lady all day today.
I'm so glad that I had decided back on Sunday to walk every OTHER day for this first few weeks :P
I'm pretty sure I would not have been able to walk that far two days in a row.
Today I've been pretty much resting up...
This afternoon I took the truck out and drove up the same desert road and stopped right as my odometer hit 1.6 miles.
The way I figure it, come tomorrow, if I can walk to this point and then head back home, I will have walked a FULL 5K (3.1 miles)
NEVER in my life have I EVER walked 5k...at least not in a deliberate sense.
I'm actually quite excited about doing this...and tomorrow, my friend who lives next door (Shanea) is going to walk with me and keep me company.
We will be leaving around 5.30am.
I'm hoping that by this coming Sunday I will have shed at least 1
(dust bunny) for all of my walking efforts this week.
I still haven't started on the nutrition side of my 'plan'...right now I'm focusing more on the exercise part.
