I'm writing this at 9:44 p.m... It is storming, so I couldn't walk the track. Temptation pulled up next to me a few mins ago in his ugly VW bus van and said "Well, you don't have to exercise today. It is already after 9. And you need to iron. And you haven't had much time to day to do what YOU wanted to do---so why don't you just go ahead and eat your snack and serf the web until bed?" Well, I laughed in his face! Silly guy that he is. So now I am off to my bedroom to do the Sweating to the Oldies 2 dvd... and THEN I will serf the net if I wish and THEN I will eat my bedtime snack. ha!
UPDATE at 11:03 p.m.....well, I just finished the Richard Simmons workout and I feel good. I think I enjoy walking more, but this dvd is a good plan B. I am now sitting here eating my bedtime snack (apples and jelly toast). I tried a new kind of bread (wheat of all things! who knew I would like it!) with less calories and I'm glad I like it. I'll save 20 cals any time I can!
Mentally, I'm back. (whooooooopppiiieeee!!!!) I overcame that brick wall. It was a thick wall-- it lasted 4 days-- but it is behind me now and I am a stronger climber now for having defeated it. The next time a wall comes before me, I will be able to climb it with less strain. It will still be hard, sure... all walls are hard.... but as the number of walls behind us increases, so does the strength of our inner selves. This IS the time. We really are doing it this time. Wow. :)
Rest well, dear friends.
