Day 114 Hi, My Name is Shane........

and I am addicted to walking for exercise. You laugh, but Kathy and I were talking today, and I mentioned that I felt as though I had opened a door that couldn't be closed by trying to work out a little extra to get me in shape for Thanksgiving weekend's challenge to myself. I wondered if my 5 miles at once weekends were going to turn into more miles at a time. Kathy said she was going to have me committed if I started walking more than five miles at a time! I broke it to her gently that I had already considered the idea of 10.2 miles being my next increment based on the fact it is a 10k and all, but I would try to stop it there.

We went to dinner tonight with our best friends and it was great. A local restaurant was having a November special in which you get your choice of two meals on a list for 20 bucks. Now, this place is some great food, but it charges well for it's great food. So when the Hunter's called to tell us about it and ask us to go eat with them, I was ecstatic! So we did go and eat. I love that they had charbroiled catfish on the menu and they even gave me green beans as my side. I had enough calories left after supper to eat some yogurt and then I had an orange too. Stil didn't make it to 1500, so tomorrow, I may try to get a few extra calories in. I tried to tonight almost. Izetta offered me some of her chicken strips tonight and I had to turn them down. They are the really good sized and yummy chicken strips, but I just didn't have the heart after counting my calories and deciding that today would be a 1500 calories day.I am sliding in at 1370 calories and about to conk out and go to bed. I be tired dudes. Ya'll have a great what is left of your wkeekened!

  2. I love it Shane! In my book, addicted to walking is a good thing. Way to go with making good choices at dinner tonight and for turning down the chicken strips. All these good choices will add up to a healthier you.

  4. yummy! That catfish sounds great!
    As for the walking....just don't (1) burn yourself out so you don't want to exercise ever again or (2) hurt yourself by doing too much. I doubt #2 will happen, but you never know. Just really be attune with what your body and soul need right now and don't overdo what 5 miles happily achieves, you know? Otherwise, keep up the fantasticness. You're amazing!
