WAIT – Day 4
Today is the first day I’ve gone for a walk before work. I was up late last night, and I knew getting out of bed this morning would be a challenge. Even if I go to bed early it’s still a challenge, so that really isn’t that much of an excuse.
Anyway, I rolled out of bed about 6 this morning. I took care of a few things, then headed out for my walk. I did even less today – 1 mile. I was pushed for time though. I even jogged a (very) short stretch to try to hurry things along a bit. I’m pretty sure that sustained exercise is more beneficial, but some exercise is better than none, so I don’t feel so bad.
Something else I forgot to mention for yesterday’s post was that I weighed myself for the first time in months. I hate the scales. Even when I take a trip to the doctor, I don’t look at the scales when they weigh me. It’s not that I’m self-conscious about my weight per-se – I don’t kid myself about being skinny..I’m just not. But I’m not obese either. I just wasn’t interested in how much I actually weighed.
But I finally decided it was best that I know, if for nothing more than to keep myself accountable. So now, I’m going to post it here as well, to hold myself even more accountable. By the way, this is part of a very broad meaning/interpretation of the word Impact in my WAIT acronym. If I hold myself accountable, I’ll be more inclined to better myself. Anyway, I’m digressing. You ready? I’m 218 according to my bathroom scales. On February 1, I’m going to weigh myself again and see if I’m making any progress.
