When you have a schedule, a real schedule, where you have to clock in at a specific time and do specific work until A) the job is finished or B) the check out time, you tend to focus on what you must do between check in and check out. I have a list of things I must get done, but sometimes the priorities change. Sometimes it takes longer than I expect. Sometimes, I don’t focus on the right stuff. I did my bible study, I did my accounting and entered in all the numbers and added things up, I had my meeting to discuss variances, I had my 5:30 student, and when did I go to the gym? I didn’t. But I didn’t let that get me down. I went on a walk around my block. It was 15 min, and a bit more than 1.5 incline going up, and I had to go down hill as well. 15 min. yup, out in the weather. uh huh.
When you’re on a treadmill, and you start to hurt, you can shut it off and go sit down. You’re never more than 500 ft. from the locker room. When you’re out walking, and start to hurt, you just hurt. You can’t turn the sidewalk off. There’s no place to sit. And you can’t just stop, you’re not home yet! I’m hurting on the muscle at the very top of the pelvic bone in the back. I’m cramping there. I can’t get off the sidewalk and sit down. I’m not home yet. I’ve only gone 3/4 of the way around the block. It really hurts! 😦
I had one of those green power shakes for lunch, chicken (baked) green beans and coleslaw and tea for dinner
15 min walking outside 1 square block

Great job! It’s not easy pushing past the pain, especially when you can’t do anything to alleviate it. And you may think of it as only 15 min, but I know that hill. It’s an *ss kicker.
