Thinking back to 2 days ago, the main thing I clearly remember is feeling grateful. I had been extremely sick the day before, so I was practically giddy at the prospect of being upright & healthy again. I was also a wee bit excited to see that I lost 2 lbs in the day & a half I was sick. (Not the best way to lose weight, but I'll take what I can get.) I was back to the grind after being out of work the day before. It was also the first workday since I had decided to quit drinking coffee for awhile. Work is pretty much the only place that I drink coffee. My job isn't full of thrills & excitement, which means I need stimulants to keep me alert. Since I'm not real keen on crack, coffee is my drug of choice.
I made it through the day without my Folgers fix, then spent the evening running some errands & just generally trying to catch up with things that fell by the wayside while I was sick. Overall, I was glad to feel like I managed to get a few things accomplished. While killing some time on pinterest before bed, I saw on one of the sparkpeople boards that they are offering a summer fun run virtual 5k. I checked it out & decided I wanted to participate. Basically I just need to follow the the free training plan they offer & track my progress on my sparkpeople account. Then anytime between July 29th-August 4th, I need to walk/run 3.1 miles & post my time. There's a drawing for a few prizes as incentive for those who complete the virtual 5k, but I'm not terribly interested in that part of the challenge. I am more interested in the physical benefits. Sparkpeople has been an amazing resource for me in trying to get healthy. That's not to say I haven't fallen off the bandwagon more than once, but it's always there when I pick back up & I'm always amazed with how much it helps me to be accountable for the things I eat & do (or don't do).
No, I don't have any epic tales to share from two days ago. In fact, I think this post is pretty boring. Despite all that, I did take steps to changing things up, trying to break out of this rut I seem to be in. So maybe I don't have anything that is worth reading, but I am excited for the changes set in motion from two days ago.
