So this is certainly the longest drought I had between posts. I should have written yesterday. No real reason to have missed out. I feel like I spent most of Saturday making a list of things to do after losing last weekend’s list, which was about half finished. Not much accomplished during the week other than a bunch of work for my employer. I was worn out almost every night.
Earlier in the week (Tuesday to be exact), I weighed in for our Weight Loss Challenge at work. This was after going to someone’s birthday lunch at The Vortex and eating a huge bleu cheese burger with tater tots. Yummy. However, I had not really done much in the way of exercise…..until today.
Julie and I went running today, but i think we pushed it a bit too far. We ran in our neighborhood and through another neighborhood until we got to the main road. I felt pretty good and only stopped because Julie did. We probably went a mile. But once we got out on the main road, I felt very hot (well, it was almost 90 degrees) and my feet were burning. But as we continued to walk, I realized we had at least 2 more miles with little shade. My face was bright red (so I was told) and my legs were feeling like jelly. We pressed on, but when we were about half mile from the house, there was a patch of shade and we stopped to rest a moment. It really helped. When we got home, I went right to the fridge for some water. I then popped down in a chair and watched some football follies on NFL Network. There was a hilarious bit involving Jeff Fisher telling the story of the Three Bears to the Titans, but I couldn’t find it on YouTube. It wasn’t really Fisher speaking but someone putting the voices into the video. Very funny.
