Second Wind…………..

September 14, 2009

You might recall that I have promised myself that I would walk a few times a week and that I would be better about taking vitamins. Well, I have been walking a few times a week. I’ll get to the vitamins next week. Hopefully.

Being in India has given me more time to walk. And there is a lovely park right across from our house with a path. A small path – but luckily, I am not that ambitious.

But I do value time management – so I was thinking, if I ran a little bit, I could get done faster.

Great idea, I agree. So I tried jogging. Well, you have to loosen your definition of jogging a bit – to simply walking (a little) faster and managing to not fall down.

Now, I have heard many of my dear friends praise running. It’s faster. It’s a better work out. And when you hit that second wind, you can go on forever.


I mean, really?

The only second wind I am going to get is when the ambulance pulls up and the emergency technician gives me CPR. Seriously, I think I need to focus more on the vitamins.

I did hear about another weight loss concept called “eating less”. I am not really sure I am clear on what that means but I might just have to try it.

    Hope the running and vitamins haven’t done you in!

    If I run for you, will you take my vitamins for me? I hate those things but love the running.

    Girl, I hate running!!! I hate not eating what I want much more, however, so I jog a bit with a miserable pout on my face.

    Your so funny! Before our summer of “a series of unfortunate events” started. I had started “running”. Since my hubby and kiddos get up at 5:30am and put in 3 to 5 miles a day, I thought I might try it. It was an easy start up kinda thing. Instead of going out and trying to run a mile it started with “run one minute, walk three, reapeat 4 times”. This was for the first week. Each week you ran a little more and walked a little less. I was doing great. Now that I have to start over, I’m not so enthused. I tried the eating less just last week, and ended up gaining 4 pounds, go figure! Good luck in you heathy endevors. I’ll be glad to be your moral support!

    Eating less sounds good–but they are called comfort foods for a reason–my friend who is far from many of her comfort zones. Good luck, and I do mean that sincerely.

    “Eating less” is an approach to weight loss? Interesting.
