Anyone Have a Walker I Can Borrow?

My legs are so sore. Yesterday they weren't too bad until I worked out again and now they're screaming in agony -- crying to be euthanized. They just blubber harder when I remind them that we're doing Day Two of the C25K tonight. Aside from the fact that I'm walking like I'm 78 years old, I'm totally loving the aching feeling. It really lets me know it's working.

I'm also proud of myself for two things.

One. Because of my hectic schedule yesterday I wasn't able to workout in the morning like normal. However, my husband didn't have to force me to workout. I did it all on my own after I got the kids in bed. I did think about just doing a short workout since it was 8pm but when I got started I just went for it and did almost an hour.

Two. My husband was enjoying the cheesy nirvana that is Spicier Nacho Doritos and breathing his cheese breath in my direction. I had already had my evening snack, was done eating for the day, and it was after 9pm. I stayed firmed and while I wanted, no craved, the Doritos goodness, I didn't partake in any.

Go me.

Go you! I love that screaming legs feeling, too. I've done so much walking in the past few days, and my legs are killing me and crying out for mercy.

GO US!! :D Hopefully all the walking is by choice and not because you have a broken down car or something.

Thanks for stopping by! :D
