"You don't have to be great to start,
but you have to start to be great."
I Go Walking After Midnight
She Did It!
I looked for the song She Did It by Eric Carmen but couldn't find it. But I did it. I stuck with my commitment to walk at work and this evening. I didn't like it much, but I did it. Well, I liked that I did it in the long run. . .
Committed Walk #1 at Work: But at work it was very challenging to get away in the afternoon because I have daily deadlines and by the time I finished the first one, it was time for several meetings. Fortunately, I was able to move one so between 2 others I went outside. It wasn't until 4:10, but I went. I didn't even change my shoes. It was nice to get outside and a woman leaving the parking garage who was waiting to let me cross called out to me through the window that she liked my jacket and asked where I got it . . . so that was a bonus! I walked 20 minutes which was the only time I had available.
Committed Walk #2 Tonight: This evening I got home around 7:45. I was tired. Monday is sushi night--take out. We finished eating about 8:30 & wrestled with Puppy Yeats to get her head directing collar on her (I don't know it's official name) but went out together to walk. We kept a pretty good pace, and I had to stop twice to breathe deep. So I wasn't loving it. But we did it. We walked 20 minutes--just down the hill and back up. . . but it's a start and I stuck to my commitments.
I feel proud. What did you do today to feel proud?
It's 10PM and hubby is reminding me it's time for bed. But I feel keyed up, like I practically just got home and even Yeats is not doing her usual lying about. But hubby won't let up; he wants me to stick to succeed--and stick to my commitment to get up in the AM and wrestle Yeats into the collar to do it all again.
