I honored my new way of thinking today by putting fun before work. I had a traditional New Year's meal complete with greens, black-eyed peas and more. That was the most I'd cooked in ages. After lunch, I left dishes piled in the sink and took off for an adventure. I purposely got lost on the trails just for the fun of finding my way back. The spots I walked were mostly abandoned today. I suppose many people were hung over or home watching footballs games, or maybe both. The trails belonged to me! It was fairly fabulous.
I logged in 11+ miles today! I only stopped because the sun was going down. I would have liked to have done more. This step number is my highest to date and the day isn't over yet. I'm home now and feel great. Not even tired.
Looking at my weekly step chart is interesting. It's funny that on the chart, Saturday's 16,665 looks paltry. That's really a good number.
The numbers make getting fit fun, but, for me, there's much more to it than numbers. I highly recommend sports/exercise/fitness to anyone working through grief. I'm finding it does as much for your mind as your body.
