Facing Reality

Last night I did my first timed walk. I did a mile. In 26 minutes. I was disgusted with myself. Then I thought of the excuses.

I walked in my crocs.
It was below freezing.
I'd just spent about 30 minutes solid of playing JUST DANCE with my son.
I was tired.
My feet hurt.

But, no matter, at that pace, I will not be able to finish the 5K on the 30th in the allotted time. I must work on shaving 6 minutes on my miles. I must watch the time. I must bring music to keep me going at a good pace. I must wear my tennis shoes.

I'm a brand new owner o a pedometer- again. My first one died, and I replaced it. Today it will be strapped on as soon as I get to school, and I will hit my goal of 10,000 steps a day. Goal is to get at least 5,000 while at school.

No excuses-- just actions.

Were they your regular Crocs or your running Crocs?

It's a pair I use whenever my feet are hurting really bad. Multiple surgeries on them... shoudln't do a job where I walk all the time, but I do love my job. :)
