Ok. This morning on the scale was rough. By changing my eating habits I'd managed to whittle the weight down a bit. Or 22 pounds. Over the past few months I've gotten really lax on what I've been eating. It's been inching back on. And now it's 6 pounds back. Grrr. Trying to remind myself it's not about numbers. It's fitness. It's fitness. IT'S FITNESS. fitness.
I did alright today. I made tacos with whole wheat shells and ground turkey for dinner. I even did better than usual on water intake.
Yeah I did!! I took off from our house on foot to enjoy some fabulous fall weather. I went UP the hill. Then I went up more hills. Hills so straight up your heels don't touch the ground. And when I got to the top, I ran home. I walked some, ran some. Tried to push it. I think I reached the brink. Had I pushed it a bit more, I would have pushed too far. Might have made myself ill. But I did it. And for a girl who has never had a regular habit of exercise at any point in my life, I feel good.
