Now that I'm back to my old schedule of going to bed early and getting up early, this morning I had a strong urge to walk. So I grabbed some track pants, runners and my ipod and headed out. As I rounded the corner of our street Bad Day was playing while it's has depressing lyrics, the instrumental is very inspirational and I felt really alive as I walked the first few minutes and my body relished in the invigourating walk. It was like old times for me, it's been well over a year since I stopped my daily walks and it really felt great.
While I had only been walking just over a month before I was pregnant with Little One and too fatigued and sick to walk, I felt like I had never stopped. I'm sure as my body adjust it will get better as well. Little One is going to be 8 months on Sept 12 and I guess my body is ready to get into shape now and my mind too!
I'm still smoking and I figure this will be a good way to quit again. The last time I was exercising regularily my body couldn't push itself as much was it wanted because my lungs couldn't keep up. I figure these cool, pretty cold actually mornings will help me too! Once it's too cold I'll just jump on the treadmill (I bought one off a friend this summer).
I feel mentally I'm at a crossroad and this is the time for me to get back too it. I was hoping it would happend soon but I'm just glad it's finally here.
Sure I've been walking all summer but it's different when one is pushing a stroller with two kids and yelling for your oldest to wait up because he's gone way ahead with his bike. So I'm off to a good start and I'm making sure I stick to it.
