Another good day. Our lovely, double digit, sunshiney weather is having a huge affect on my mood and general outlook on life. I want to do stuff!
I went out at lunch again for my walk and I really pushed myself today to hit the 20 minute mile. I can walk a 18 minute mile on my treadmill on an incline consistently but outside it's harder.I probably do walk a little slower, but I also need to walk around people, stop for lights and cars to make turns into driveways etc and even though I keep my feet moving during that time I am not moving as fast as just walking without interruption. So today, I knew to hit the 20 minute mile I'd have to really walk fast in between the lights and obstacles and I did. I hit 20 minutes exactly, and I felt it! I was exhausted when I got back to the trailer and so thirsty! I downed three big glasses of water right away while I heated up my lunch.
I like the message from Lance Armstrong that the Nike program gives when you beat your best time :) It doesn't take much to make me happy!
I've also noticed that since I've been walking at lunch time, I don't get the 3 o'clock munchies like I used to. I still get hungry around 3 p.m. but I'm not craving sugar like I was before, it's just a normal hungry (if that makes sense!)
Came home from work and went out for another walk, Den didn't feel like it tonight so I went alone. I did 1.44 miles, average - 19.08/mile. Woohoo. I have to admit, there are no stop lights, and only one residential side street to cross, it's pretty much a continuous loop, but it does go up and down - it's not flat. Biggest Loser tonight, then I have to drive my son's gf home - it's going to be a late night.
