Friday, Grappling with reality?

I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds.  And I’m going to walk at least 3 miles today (as I do just about everyday,) take my fiber supplement and drink two liters of water.

This has been a weird few months for me.  First that bizarre winter where just getting out of the house at all was a nearly overwhelming challenge. THEN for some reason I haven’t been able to keep track of my pedometer.  I’ve worn the thing everyday for years but, since the first of March I’ve lost it twice.

Most recently, it’s been missing for nearly a month.  I’ve looked everywhere for it — tried the “don’t panic, it’ll turn up when you least expect it” technique. And sure enough, it turned up under my least favorite pair of socks when I grudgingly decided to pick them up from the corner where I’d tossed them.  Lesson learned.  I’m sure.

Anyway, the pedometer proved it’s super-human powers . . . Yesterday I
got my new driver’s license, visited parents, planted tomatoes & walked 3.5 miles before lazing on the patio for a couple of hours. All in all good day — it couldn’t have happened without my trusty pedometer!

    Catherine–a pedometer works as a reminder to “keep going” throughout the day!

    That’s it exactly, Conda!  It’s so weird that I’ve lost it twice since the first of the year.  I didn’t know how much I’ve come to rely on it.

    Sounds like what would happen to me when my bad self was trying to keep my good self from doing the things I know I need to do for my health.
