Okay, so yesterday (or would that be the day before yeste....whatever) I had my splurge day. I probably, with the help of a bag of lays...choked down around 2800 calories. Now before I started on my 'new lifestyle', that kind of calorie count could've been accomplished in my sleep. Now it takes effort. Today I was back on program. Over the last two days I have walked an addtional 4.3 miles. Today I ate 1694 calories and walk 2.3 miles.
I like walking, I really do....however, today the fates were aligned against me.
I got a huge blister which popped and necessitated my taking off my shoe halfway through my walk. That being said I tried to keep up the pace. Then I ran into cujo, a St. bernard unencumbered by either leash or owner, but apparently too lazy to maul me, so satisfied himself with threatening growls and barking . I -limped by as quietly as I could. I round the corner and bam, what should impede my further progress but a two foot long snake, those of you who know me know what this means, yes I froze. I DONT LIKE SNAKES. He stopped-I stopped. He looked at me, I looked at him. I backed up two steps, He didn't move. I walked around. He obliged by not making any sort of threatening motions. I walked on, he slithered across the street. Then I ran into a swarm of gnats. That was my walk in a nutshell...hopefully Mondays walk will be better. Well, here's to Tommorrow.
