day 171 (day 3 / week 25)

I just got finished with the last bit of my exercise--day 20 of the 30 day shred, level 3 (it was a 2-parter today for a total of 120 minutes). The first part was a 4.79 mile walk with my hubby and the Monkey Boy this morning. When I mapped it out on sparkpeople, my hubby jokingly told me to name it his "gimpy walk," so I did. lol. Poor thing, he has been limping around ever since our walk--his shoes weren't too good to him but either were the pair he wore on our last walk. I think he secretly buys shoes for the looks, and not for anything else, but shhh...don't tell him this ;).


















During our walk, I thought to myself almost immediately and several times into our walk (all marked with a red dots), that I wanted to stop, turn around, or go a shorter different route home which we ended up doing, anyway, only because the Mr. didn't like walking on a main city street with traffic. (it was still almost 5 miles though). I even said out loud to him, "We can do something shorter today," and he would just respond with, "It's your workout," which kind of guilted me into keep going (whatever works, ya know?). After we got to the 1/2 way point, it was easier to just push forward. Seeing the traffic light up in the distance gives you (me) a visual goal, and makes pushing forward A LOT easier. If I don't see that light, it's hard, so thank goodness for those lights (every corner I have to turn onto is a light so I would have punked out long ago w/out those traffic lights lol).

I would have finished the 30 day shred earlier today but I procrastinated. I do that a lot and need to find out how to stop that. A few weeks ago I was able to stop, but it sucked me in again. I'll figure it out eventually, because all it's doing is hurting me in the long run (I don't like exercising later in the day).

Make today count! It'll be gone before you know it!

I can do this. I am a star.

Sounds like a great walk!
I know that sometimes if I feel like not doing anything like for example a run, I just put on my shoes and just go with the mind set if it's really not working I'll go home, I am yet to not finish a run, once I'm out there I just want to keep going. I also think "how much do I want this" that alone give me the push I need.
Keep up the great work, you are doing fantastic!

I went for a 5 mile trail run yesterday and nearly died, not just because it was hot and humid, but because there were no mile markers, no nothing. Nothing that told me how far I had gone or how much further there was to go...and it made it really hard to keep going except that I was lost in the woods with no way out! When you're out on the street like that, it's better because you know you could go home...or you could choose to walk to that next traffic light. It gives you so much more control.
