For the first time for since getting back on the exercise bandwagon, I hit my walking goal! Heck, I nearly hit my stretch goal (5.5 miles) while I was at it. How did I do it? Simple, really – I got up and went walking during my breaks, and I started parking at the top of the parking garage again. It makes me walk farther, so I get in more steps and increase my odds of hitting goal (significantly increases, apparently). My legs are just a touch sore right now, a symptom of having gotten out of practice, but it’s that kind of paradoxical soreness that feels good because you got it from working hard.
On the down side, I kind of blew through my calorie budget yesterday. I made the mistake of eating out for lunch (breakfast, to most people), and it turns out that Chik Fil A breakfast biscuits have all the calories. All of them. They’re good, but… wow. 650 per sandwich. I’m not saying I won’t do that again, mind, but next time I’ll plan for it.
Still and all, I feel good. Really good.
