After lunch I was able to watch the video from the tv spot and then I felt all jigglypuff as in jiggly and puffy. All I could see was this little guy.
Speaking of support, I've been talking to my fitness and healthy-focused friends and I'm really grateful for all the extra support they have offered up! I have one friend who is going to take a look at my bike and a couple others who have offered to jog with me when I'm ready. Awesomesauce!
Last night, I worked out at the gym and mixed things up a little. I get bored easily. I did about 25 minutes on the treadmill at 3.0 mph and varied the incline/decline, then when I did the elliptical, I did one mile forwards and a half mile backwards. It was much less boring with the little variances and I watched a funny comedy special which made the time fly. I feel like I can walk forever when I'm in the woods, but in the gym after about 10 minutes my mind starts to scream for stimulation and distraction.
I also signed up for what will be my very first overnight backpacking trip. It's an all-girls 10 mile trip. 6 or 7 miles on day one, then the remainder on day two. I'm super excited and frankly a bit scared. I'm doing a practice hike for about 7 miles tomorrow on my own to make sure that I can handle it. I'm looking forward to spending the time in nature and in the quiet. Ahhh. Since I get to set my own pace, I'm going to bring my camera also.
In preparation for my trip, yesterday I picked up a new pair of Smartwool socks that are supposed to help prevent blisters and today I'm going to get new insoles for my boots. Last year I found out the hard way what ill-fitting shoes and socks can do. I bruised both my big toes so badly I lost the nails on both and they are still not totally grown back, ugh. Tonight I'm going to raid my camping gear and do an inventory to see what I need for next weekend. Have I mentioned I'm excited?
In other exciting news, I harvested my first peas yesterday from my community garden plot. I love summer!
