well i got thru the day..



well the day started out okay.it was a saturday, and was going to be a good day...i went to work at 4 this evening and we had only done a half page then...well we had only been open two hours, so i thought okay we will get busier..surely we will..nope i was wrong..we got slower..i sat there and sat there and nobody came..our other stand was going strong..but we werent..and we just cant figure this out..

so i got bored..deathly bored..lol i thought about a snocone..but then NO..i said..not a snocone..iam not ruining this day for a snocone..so then i looked at my pedometer and it said i had only walked like 200 steps today..i couldnt just sit there and not move..so i went outside and i walked..but for some reason i couldnt get the powerwalking like i was last night..i did a mile but it took 25 minutes to do it..last night it took 35 minutes to do 2 miles..i just didnt understand that..i was walking fast and i got my heart rate up..i was even sweating when i got done..but i did it anyway..so i went back in and looked at my watch and i still had 2 hours to go..wow what a day..it just took forever to get to 9pm tonight...im still not rested..i will probably have to take some pain medicine to relieve my pain all over..im pretty exhausted tonight..but i did drink 6 glasses of real water..not flavored water but real honest to goodness water..and i liked it..so tonight i had 1300 calories and 6 glasses of water and walked a mile..not to bad for a saturday ..

i took a full figure picture tonight to see if i do look thinner in these other pants, and i do..its pretty cool i actually look smaller..some of my friends who saw me walking tonight at the stand was telling me on fb how nice i really look, so i needed to see it too..it sure feels good to be noticing a difference and others notice it too..hope you all have a wonderful sunday..
GOD BLESS YOU ALL

  1. Great job kelli...I love turqoise on you...it's a pretty color.
    Love the lipstick too.
    Good job on a mile.
    That two miler may have made you tight.
    I know that the workout I put in on a sunday is really intense...Yet I can only get my heart rate up to a 135-140 range.
    By Friday, that same workout will put my heart rate into the 150-160 range. My body is tired.
    That's why that day of rest is so crucial.
    Good job on the water intake.
    Hugs.

  2. Yup...you got through the day and I have those days too...I may have a couple decent runs out there, e.g. 4.5, 3.1 miles, etc. and to follow it up with 1.32...but I keep trying. And you'll keep trying because you know that on another day, you'll do 2 miles in 34 minutes and keep improving with the occasional blah day along the way.

  3. I usually don't worry about how long it takes me to do a mile. I just like walking outside at my own pace and working up a sweat. But when I'm on the treadmill, it does matter how long it takes. I guess that's a little game I play with myself to overcome the boredom.
