It rained off and on all day yesterday, which made for a nice and quiet day.
My BFF Krissy stopped by when she got off work and we made plans for do a 5K together in September.
Yeah, I've never ran before BUT have always wanted to.
I see those gals alongside the road just flying along and think I wish I could do that.
Kris has gotten into exercise as a way of promoting a more healthy lifestyle (and hey the new dude in her life is probably a big motivator too lol ).
As you know, I park my arse in front of computer for a minimum of eight hours a day and you wouldn't believe how hard that is on your body. Last February I started doing an exercise DVD on my lunch breaks and got an elliptical in March. I've lost a few pounds, but the major thing for me is that I totally feel better. No more achy left heal, knees, hips, lower back, shoulders or neck. Fewer headaches too. This is not to say I no longer have aches though, in fact I have a raging case of basal thumb arthritis in my right hand. That has actually hardly hurt at all this week I've been off ~ YAY!
Somehow even when you are tired and think you've got no energy for anything but a nap, exercising helps you feel better. Lubes the joints good and helps release all that tension/stress we all have.
I'm still trying to make exercising a "good" habit.
I'll go for several weeks staying in my routine, then somehow get out of it for a while. Only to start again when the aches and pains begin to make themselves known again.
So we'll see if I can maintain my "good" habit long enough to develop some stamina (and confidence) to actually do a 5K.
I've only ever had bad habits - smoking, but hey i did quit so that has got to count for something! drinking - yes i love a good cold beer or two maybe three.
Towards evening the sun came out and we saw a double rainbow.
Looks like Shrek is about sitting on the pot of gold.
Tried goofing with my camera to do a panoramic shot, but it didn't quite come out. Apparently you have to pan left to right and not right to left.
And by the time I got that figured out the second rainbow was gone.
Speaking of habits, I saw this saying on a T-shirt a while back -
Bad habits are like a comfortable warm bed; easy to get into, but hard to get out of.
Have a good day :)
