5 Miles! Umm... I wonder

Monday, July 22, 2013

So yesterday I was getting a little stir crazy being in the house so I thought I would go for a walk. Now I walk almost everyday and minimum of 2 miles and sometimes three. Yesterday I went 5!
Now I am just walking at about 3.5 MPH but it is a good walk and I am burning calories as long as I am moving.. it doesn't have to be a ran.
I am going to try and do that three days a week and on three other days I will do at least 2 so that would be over 20 miles a week. I can totally do that!

    Way to go!
I love running/walking outside! It makes me feel good in so many ways. The air, the changing environment, other people that are on the path as well. It's often my alone time, just for myself, and I think we all need that. I used to play soccer in highschool, so I had a running background. I had to quit after 12 years due to an increasing busy life though, So when I finally decided to go back out there I couldn't run anymore like I used to. I slowly started walking too, and I loved it for the same reasons I love running so much! Now, I am back to running, but it took lot's of walking to get back there :) It doesn't matter at what pace we go. It's about you finding something you like, and about you making the effort, so WAY TO GO! :) Walk away those miles emoticon

Working inside a grocery store... Could it be more....

Thursday, July 18, 2013

My work place is kind of interesting. I work at a credit union that is inside a grocery store. Not really uncommon these days BUT can prove to be very challenging when trying to eat well.
Reason #1 that it is hard at time. Because they build their displays right in front of my office. This usually is soda, candy, chips or cereal. The holidays are really hard when those displays go up.
I have found ways around it and for the most part stay out of the store itself. Just walk the produce and meat department but I tell ya on bad days this is not the best place to be!


I feel like... UGH!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

OMG. I feel like totally poo. I have a lunch for my company today for my 5 year anniversary and I am having a nervous breakdown about being with all those people and people looking at me.
I feel fat and uncomfortable. And I don't want to talk to anyone.

    Awww, cheer up and have a good time. Your company is celebrating you for your hard work and dedication. I just got a stinky little pin. You get to be celebrated

"That tank top is tight."

Monday, July 15, 2013

I know that if I don't want an answer I should not ask the question but sometimes it really still makes me feel bad and I have to fight it.
Yesterday it was hot I could not wear a t-shirt or sweater. I have a black tank top that is lose fitting but nothing I wear right now looks good because my mid-section is larger then I would like. I have a "spare tire" so to speak.
Before we were getting ready to leave I made the mistake of asking my husband if I looked ok.

HIM "I don't know, turn around."
ME *spins around like a show dog*
HIM "I guess it is ok."
ME "What is wrong with it? Ok means there is something you don't like."
HIM "Well it is a little tight."
ME "Tight in the sense that my boobs look huge or tight in the sense that you don't want to me seen with me because I look fat?"
HIM "Why do you ask me?"
ME "Because what you think matters."
HIM" I just know that you are self aware of your sides and if you really look you would not like how that top fits, I love you and think you are sexy and prefect but you don't believe me and then I get in trouble when I tell you the truth. I love you, can we go now?"

My poor husband. I know that he loves me no matter what I look like or weigh and I am way harder on myself then I should be sometimes.

my morning so far

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

I love my home town. I went for a beautiful morning bike ride and got to see the sun coming up over the old bridge and got a great reflection on the river of a cool house. Working out is so much more the just sweat and getting thin. I feel alive when I see the world and nature work. God has amazing things to show us that we will miss laying in bed for that extra hour.
