WALKING FOR A CAUSE...AND SOMETIMES JUST BECAUSE

Monday, July 19, 2010

It called to me...

7-19-10

The training schedule called for four miles today.

I did six.

Not because I'm all gung ho and always have to do just a little bit more than is required.

Nope, I did it because at 3 miles, I heard something calling my name. It was clear as a bell. Thummmmmmppppperrr...come heeerrrreeee...

I am nothing if not obedient--just ask the Spouse Thingy--and followed the sound of my name.

Right into Solano Bakery, where, in the display case, was a chocolate glazed donut calling out to me.

The internal struggle of I-want-one-but-I-shouldn't lasted about .00009 seconds, when I decided that because I hadn't had a donut in over a year, dammit, I was getting one.

So I added two miles to my walk, because as good as that donut was, I don't want it hanging around any longer than necessary.

And I'm starting to wonder how many people who undertake the training for this walk end up gaining weight...donuts are evil and I'm sure I'm not the only person who hears them calling.

I lost weight ... toned up ... looked great ...
And then I stopped training. And then I gained weight. And now I'm a big mess. But I'm training again and hope that, in time, I'll lose weight ... tone up ... and look great.
Isn't today a rest day? Just wondering.

Yesterday was my rest day...I do my long days on Friday & Saturday. I don't know why, though...

I *should* be losing weight. Diet's on track, I'm burning tons more calories than I did this time last year. But...nada. Very frustrating.
