Yesterday I did another 15 minutes on the treadmill – I think I’m on a hot streak! I really wanted to go faster and longer, but more than that, I really don’t want to go ALL OUT!! and then fizzle after a few days like I have in the past. So I forced myself to do only 15 minutes and go sorta slow. After the treadmill, my newfound inertia led me to clean my kitchen and pick up a little around the house. So I guess it’s true what they say, “a body in motion” and all. I have heard that exercise gives you more energy, which to me seems kind of backward. Exerting energy gives you more energy? Huh? Anyway, I’m not going to question it, I’m just going to accept it for what it is. I’m so tired of being tired all the time, so I hope working out will help. That is the main reason I want to get fit – I need more energy. I probably won’t get any treadmill time today but I figure all that trick or treating
that I my kids will be doing tonight will give me plenty of walking time! And speaking of Halloween, I’m strangely calm about it. Usually I freak out about the flood of candy that spills onto my living room floor about 8 pm. Typically I am on a diet at this time of year and have to battle the angel and devil on my shoulders – the angel telling me to be a “good girl” and not partake of the creamy milk chocolatey goodness, but then the devil usually wins out and I dive head first into my kids trick or treat bags. This year, though, I’m not dieting and so I’m not freaking out. I’ll probably pick the M&M’s out of my son’s bag (he doesn’t like M&M’s – he’s a freak of nature), and I’ll eat a couple and be done with it. At least that’s what I’m hoping will happen…we’ll see.
