October 18th 2005-
I went out this morning after dropping my son off at preschool to attempt to go on a "jog" I decided to walk around my block which is not very far walking it only takes about 20 minutes if your walking at a quick pace...I walked the First half of my "jog" down a hill, and as I rounded the turn to go back up the hill I decided that if I was going to actually Excercise I was going to have to try and run a little bit...so I started to jog at a slow speed up the hill...I can honestly say I probley Jogged for only 2 Minutes before I had to stop, If I would have kept jogging I swore my legs would crumble beneth me and I would be left laying there in the side of the road in the middle of suburbia. Instead I walked the rest of the way up the hill at a slow pace- panting and weezeing all the way up, till i got home...I decided to do my push ups and sit ups in my room to spare my dignity. I got down on my hands and knees knowing that there was no way I would be able to do a "real" push-up. And I started...One...two...three...four...five...six....that was it..I collapsed on the floor after that one. I rolled over on to my back...now for sit-ups...Lucky my stomach muscles arnt as shot as my arms...I started with 10 crunches forward, switched to 10 with my left leg, 10 with my right and 10 with my feet bent like I was sitting in a chair on its back.....I flopped my feet down on the ground and laid there, my heart beating hard....Man! I was thinking back to when I was 16 and I could run at least a mile before I dropped dead. I could do at least 60 push ups and countless amounts of situps...I was disturbed.
Today wasnt as hard as I thought it would be... Im still sick from yesterday, looking on the peta site. so that has helped curb my appitie from eating meat today.
For Breakfast I had a bagel with sugar free rasberry jam. and a cup of coffee.
For lunch I had a saled with a cup of mandarin oranges and a cup of milk. and Im still thinking about dinner.
