It’s 9 am, and I have already gotten my walk in! Which, in a way, does not feel like a huge accomplishment: it’s been true of every day this week. But today is special for several reasons:
- This marks Day 7 of exercise for me. That’s 7 days in a row. It’s hard for me to express what a huge accomplishment this is for me. It’s like saying Lindsay Lohan had been clean for 7 days.
- I went out with some friends last night and had Mexican food and awesome margaritas. At a place that has a three margarita limit. Which I apparently viewed as a personal challenge. Also a personal challenge? Peeling myself out of bed when the alarm went off this morning.
- I tried a new route this morning, and it ended up being about .2 mile longer than my previous walks.
- Said route also included a rather large hill that I hadn’t anticipated; it’s fairly short but quite steep. It was really, really hard, and I was WAY out of breath by the top, but I made it. I didn’t turn around and find another route when it got tough. And a year ago, I really think I would’ve had to stop 2 or 3 times along the way.
