The second picture looks like the ice goes on forever, right? Well, it practically did! I think it was a solid tenth of a mile of ice, if not more, just in that picture. Thankfully there was plenty of ice-free path, too, but those two spots were really tricky to navigate, and since I did an out and back, I had to do each one twice! I tried running off the path, but the sides were a muddy mess. Ugh.
But! It was so gorgeous out today, and I'm really glad that I decided to hit the "trail" today. (It's called the B&A Trail, but it's paved, so I tend to think of it with quotation marks around it. It's a path. LOL)
I didn't post yesterday, but I did exercise, so that means today's officially Day 4 of ... well, whatever this is. Me being more active. I don't really need to title it, right? It's life. My life, which happens to now involve more movement. (And burpees. Oh, god, the burpees!)
My life also currently involves less muffins. I'm trying not to be bitter about it. LOL My daughter asked for a doughnut yesterday, and I felt bad telling her no, but I knew that if we went to Dunkin Donuts, I would get a muffin, and then I'd likely just spiral out of control like a crazy person. So, no donuts for her while I'm creating new habits for myself. Healthier for her, anyway, even if it's not as fun.
Getting back to the burpees for a second. Who in the world invented theses torturous things? Jeepers, I'd forgotten how much I hated them. I stumbled upon 31 Days of Burpees and decided I'd give it a go. Yesterday was my first day. Whooo-boy. 5 was not pleasant. I can't imagine what 50 is going to feel like.
I don't know if I'll stick with it or not - I'm notoriously bad at sticking with things, but we'll see. If Kim can do 44 of some exercise every day, surely I can do this challenge, right? (Then again, Kim is one tough lady. If you don't believe me, check out her blog!)
Is there anything you do every day? (Other than bodily functions which you need not share, thankyouverymuch)
