The bridge walk/run was fun. I was a about a minute into staying in bed when I remembered I had given my word to Shayla that I would walk with her. She hasn’t been walking much, even had to borrow walking shoes for it and I didn’t want to let her down. So, I dragged my ass out of my warm cocoon of a bed, got dressed, grabbed a cup of coffee & a banana, and drove to the Sidney Lanier bridge. I got there a little late, but was surprised to see they had us all directed to the close parking, ( I thought) instead of the middle school like last year. Yeah, right, I had to park out in the cuts and probably walked 1/2 mile to get to the festivities.
I was told to look for the group in red shirts, which is what we got for our team. Uh, red is the same color EVERYBODY got for this year’s bridge walk/run. HAHA! LAUGH RIOT!! Anyways, I found us and went up to the bridge and waited for the last of the runners to finish. The walkers started at 9am so we had to wait about 15 mins. Not too bad. We all started together but soon it was me and Shayla on our own. We did pretty good until we got on the decline to the other end of the bridge. Shayla’s ankles were hurting her so we turned around. I figure we cut out about 1/2 mile or so. Not too bad for her 1st time walking. I don’t know how she is feeling today though.
I have been doing Nichole’s body/mind workout videos. She does a 5 minute warm-up, 20 minute cardio workout with affirmations, then a 5 minute cool-down. She puts a new workout on every other module, and I am on module 12 which is the last one. I haven’t been the best student…… I have done 1, 5, and 9. I have done them several times, every day last week! They make me feel so good, I know I need them, but I haven’t been motivated until now. Maybe it’s because the end is near. I want to please Nichole by being successful. That’s a load of crap. I don’t need to please anyone besides MYSELF. I want to be healthy, strong and beautiful once again.
