Fitness Friday - 03/23 - 03/29

Ok, so to honest, I really don't remember much since last Friday.  I need to start keeping a running post until it's time to "make it live"
I do suspect though that if I don't really remember, then it must not have been very memorable.

The only day I do know for sure that I got some exercise was Tuesday.

I remember because I turned off my bullshit meter to do it.

So, here is the thing.  Like any good fat person, there are a million reasons why you can't exercise and you promise yourself that when "such and such of a senerio" arises, you will find it so simple to exercise.

One of those things on my list is when the kids are in school full time, I will have my day off by myself to go for a nice walk around lunch time.

This Tuesday I was off work because it was the original date for my gall bladder surgery before it got moved to Thursday.  Hayden was in school and Abby was in daycare.  I spent the morning getting laundry caught up, making banana bread and other household chores. I was comfy and didn't want to leave the house.  But I mentally smacked myself upside the head, telling myself that today was my perfect senerio.  So, I put on my running shoes and my IPod and hit the streets.  I convinced myself I would only do the small block but by the time I got to the turning point where I either go home or keep going, I decided to man up and keep going.  It only takes me about 35 minutes to do the whole loop.  It is a nice walk, with some gradual hills.  Plus I live in a perfect neighbourhood for it.  I wish I was one of those bloggers that has a nifty camera phones and snapped pictures of their out and abouts, but truthfully, I barely know how to turn on my cell phone.

So, there you have it.  My one day of excercise.

  1. One day is better than no days! But huzzah! for holding yourself accountable and realizing they are excuses and not valid reasons (most of the time anyway..) :) :)

    I look forward to running marathons with you some day! I might even RUN to Canada! HAH! :)
