SEPTEMBER!!!! Who else is so excited that it is September and the cool weather is on its way?!?! Fall is my favorite!
I'm not going to talk about my kids today, because who but me and Wade wants to hear about them all the time? Today I had the luxury of going on a walk/run (mostly walking, I'm not going to mislead anyone into thinking I'm any sort of runner) at Ada Hayden lake. Wade asked if there was anything I wanted to do by myself before he went into school. I chose to exercise. I have not exercised for.... let's count. Whitney is 28 months + 9 months of pregnancy = 37 months. Let's say 3 yrs because I have gone on the occasional stoll, but haven't raised my heart rate above a brisk walk for 3 yrs. Wow. That's a long time, considering I have always been one to exercise. I don't exercise to lose weight or to look like an aerobics instructor. I simply like a little bit of muscle tone and it just makes you feel good.
Okay, so I tried to run today and I got such a painful side stitch I had to walk. I figured for my first time out I better not push it and just enjoy being out alone in nature with the occasional other passerby. So let me tell you, I weigh between 105-110 and not because I diet or exercise. It is simply from taking care of my kids and I don't over indulge in bad food and drink. Believe me, I indulge, just reasonably. For those of you who know me you know I will eat anything. I'm not a calorie snob. Just because I am thin does not mean I am fit. My lungs feel like lead weights and every muscle in my legs were tingling. Even my shoulders were sore from swinging my arms back and forth! After I drove home I about fell out of the truck as my legs betrayed me after I tried to step on the ground again. It will be a slow process, but I will regain physical fitness again!! For now, I will accept that my 50+ age parents are in FAR better shape than I am right now! Heck, I think my 80 year old land lord is in better shape than me right now!
The Rest of the story… and here we go!
