Week 9, Sunday, I. am. so. tired.

This pic completely expresses how I feel at the moment. I took this pic about 10 minutes ago, while sitting at the table and waiting for my pinto beans to heat up. I am so tired.

Today was the first day of the walk-a-thon. I walked 5.25 miles today, which is more than double the amount that I have walked in a day before. Like I said in a previous post, this walk-a-thon falls during a busy week for me............finishing up schoolwork with the kids and revival at I am forced to be an excellent time manager.

I woke up at 5:30 a.m. and was walking by 6. I walked for an hour. After Sunday School, I walked for 30 something minutes. Then I walked again around 4. I don't know if it is a rash from my body stressing out ("hey lady, what are you trying to do to me? kill me?") or if it is a sunburn, but my face is splotchy red and stings.
I walked 2 hours and 9 minutes today.

I've gotta tell about my sweet hubby. I had my exercise clothes with me and changed into them at the church after Sunday School. I sent the kids home with hubby (we drive seperatly on sunday mornings). I was going to do some walking. There was a roast/potatoes/carrots waiting in the oven for them to eat when they got home. I said "if the kids are still hungry, I'll cook some mac and cheese when I get home".

Well,I walked and when I got home, hubby had cooked the mac and cheese! Hubby does NOT cook. I'm a stay at home mom and I do all of the domestic stuff and I don't mind it, but he saw how hard I was working and did several small things that meant a lot to me. Such as cooking the mac and cheese, clearing off the table, fixing everyone's drink, offering to fix my plate, making sure the kids hung up their church clothes and put their shoes away.

Ug.............did I mention I am tired? LOL I'm going to finish eating these beans, iron for tomorrow and go to bed. Another early day tomorrow to fit it all in.

On a good note, I rec'd $55 worth of donations for SRD so far!

Thanks for reading my jumbled words. :)

  2. If you're a night owl, how on earth did you manage to get up and go like that at 5:30? WOW

    Your husband is wonderful! How lovely to have such great support. How do you find time to walk that much?

    I guess the great thing about exercise, whatever type, is it's a reflective time..prayer time, think time, quiet time, rejuvinating the soul. I am in awe that you were able to do so much in one day!
