After teaching spin last night I was hungry. I wanted to wait to eat dinner with Billy after he got home at 9 p.m. but decided I should have a little appetizer. While debating on what to have I went through the checklist….
Fruit and Veggies- check
Healthy fats- check
Ice cream- what the heck…….NOOOOO.
I did what any normal girl experiencing uterus pain would do.
Walk by yourself to get an ice cream cone and take a self-portrait.
I have to admit it was rather difficult finding something to prop my camera up on that was the right height so I just decided to make it look like I was popping a squat and eating ice cream at the same time.
Even though it looks as though I am just wearing bright white leggings, rest assured those are actually my legs and I do have shorts on but the whole squatting with two broken femurs doesn’t really allow me brain space to focus on the details of pulling my shorts down a little.
What I am loving about going for WALKS:
-I am grateful I don’t walk with a limp anymore:)
-No music. I always listened to music when I ran and it is really nice to just take time to think without LInkin Park blasting in my ears.
-Fresh air always makes life that much better.
-I don’t get as many bugs flying into my mouth (long story but yes, that is a problem for me when I run)
-I can look around at everything without worrying about falling flat on my face (not that I haven’t tripped on sidewalk cracks a million times or anything).
-I don’t have to worry about pace, hiding water bottles along my course (7 blocks to the ice cream store), and I don’t even have to change into a sports bra if I don’t want to.
-People wave. Uh…..I JUST LOVE THAT. Just like runners have that special bond as you run past each other…so do walkers. Endorphins just make people more friendly than normal:)
Here is the spin playlist. I brought back some oldies that will always be classics in my book.
Sorry to cut things short but Billy-bobster just walked in the door and we gotta make dinner, brush our teeth and say our prayers all within 23 minutes before my bedtime.
Don’t forget to enter my GIVEAWAY…winner will be picked on Friday!!!!
Do you live in an area that it is easy to walk to the places you need to go?
-I wish I could walk to work every day but no luck……but we do live in an area that we can walk to the store and the necessities like ice cream and 7-11’s candy aisle. Freshmen year of college was so fun because I didn’t have a car and would just walk everywhere…LOVED IT.
What are your favorite things about going for walks?
-I think if I had a puppy (hint hint) that would be the bestest part!
What food group have you added to your daily food checklist?
-Help me learn from you because I don’t think ice cream cones are the best options:)
