April 6 ... 6 minutes jogging

Saturday, April 06, 2019

I did this in 2 minute intervals - so 3 times...and I had to make up for April 4 & 5 as work was pretty intense with traveling these 2 days and I did not make it out there. That's part of my emerging rules for this April challenge. I CAN skip a day, so long as I make it up. So today, I ended up jogging 15 minutes and walking 14 mins ( I did not walk the full 2 mins everytime between jogging intervals). I went in the neighborhood which is a huge thing for me. And it felt great. I had some conversation in my head with my best friend Sandra and she sent a nice breeze to my face to encourage me. I did not put the headphones on...and it was really nice to get out and think as I jogged - as I used to. My knees protested a bit - but not too bad...and I can only hope that as some weight comes off, they will feel better.

It's been another week of intense work and travel - and eating out more than usual. Weight was up this am. I think some of it is sodium. So - hitting water heavy today. I have a date with my 2 oldest friends tonight (dinner out again) and tomorrow night is a neighborhood dinner to welcome our new neighbors. My goal this week is to eat at home the rest of the week (but there is a possible lunch with mom and sister).

Monday am I have a full physical scheduled with my new PCP. I hope I like him. I will mention the knees to him, ad the weight, and ask for a referral to a cardiologist, as our insurance dropped my current doctors.

I am proud of myself for getting out there this am. I am a bit surprised it was much easier to keep these intervals going than I anticipated. The battle really is in the head. Sometimes. emoticon
