Day 39 in my journey to see Mickey
Today I am just plain pooped. True confession time: I didn’t make the 20 minutes in my walk yesterday. I made 12 minutes. I just have such a long way to go. But I find it interesting that some days I feel full of vim and vigor and can push myself pretty far and other days it’s a no-go. The walk was beautiful yesterday; I was just worn out from work. I figure, at least I made the 12 minutes and I can push for longer next time.
Here’s my plan for today: take it easy on myself. I will eat healthy: half of an omelet for breakfast with a piece of rye toast, lentil soup with a roll and an apple for lunch, a banana with sugar-free peanut butter for after work snack, and a grilled lean ham, 2% Swiss cheese, spinach and spicy mustard sandwich with a spinach and tomato salad for dinner. Then I will go to sleep tonight (I hope I sleep better than last night) and try again in the morning.
Today I signed up for a 5K walk on November 29. I will walk off some of my Thanksgiving dinner for a cause. It’s called the COOL 5K/10K Walk/Run and it benefits the COOL Food Pantry in Waukegan. They are helping me to help them. 🙂 They get the funds from the registration fee, and I get an incentive to walk more. Win-win.
Meet you at the Kingdom!
