Since some of my blogger friends kinda expressed subtly that my Saturday transgression worried them, I want to say this. THE SHANE EXPRESS IS BACK ON TRACK!! I have had the most wonderful two days the last couple of days. I have been dead on on eating and my taking a day to rest my legs paid off. I now have fresh legs for the first time in a really long time! I was zooming around Wal Mart this morning like a man possessed! It was great to have a little something in my step today. I had been fighting fatigue I think. I am addicted to walking, but I am not in the shape to be doing the miles I have been apparently. I won't stop trying mind you, but I am going to try to be more mindful to my legs from now on. Probably not really but it sounds good. I am actually already trying to figure out how many miles I can get in tomorrow. It is looking like 4 or 5 optimistically. I need those miles dang it!
I got my old fried Growly McStomach back today and it settled my nerves to have him around. I like him, makes me feel good about me. I do like to tease him with like 6 peanuts or almonds when he gets to talking. It makes me smile when he shuts up for that little bit of food. I am still in awe of the fact that tonight, my total calories for the day was 1380 and I used to do that for a meal usually!! And I ain't starving, so how was it that was before? I will never get Pre Journey Shane. He was an odd duck.
I have had to come to terms with something over the last few days. I don't think I am going to get to be the runner I know I can be. My ankles are grown in wrong and it actually caused me a great deal of grief a few years back before I got to a foot doctor and they got me orhtotics for my shoes. I can walk comfortably now, but the doctor warned me to not try to run anymore. I failed at that, but because I so love running. WEll my ankles have been hurting pretty bad here lately and that is without running much, so I am going to try to maybe pull some more weight off me and try again in a few more pounds to see if the ankles may feel better with added muscles and lower body weight.
Oh, and I have a new personal goal. I want to be 230 pounds by the end of November. I am at 242 right now, so I think it is doable. I have decided that I will not have any more days like Saturday, I will keep putting together high mileage days of walking, and I will be extra careful to not eat out of control on Thanksgiving. I think I am in good shape because even if I allow the extra 500 for the day I am thinking about, I have four days off that are likely going to be days I use to get a ton o' walking in!! I wouldn't doubt I will put up 20 miles that weekend! I may start tracking my miles on here somehow just so I can see it in black and white. Ok folks, old man is ready for some slee.......zzzzzzzzzz.
