Day 6 Boot Camp
Friday, January 08, 2010
Today was a lovely winter day . . . if you believe such a thing exists. Even though there was snow cover as far as the eye could see, it was that real pretty snow with the sparkling crystal effect. The sun was shining brightly and there was hardly any wind. Making this the perfect day to go outside for some fresh air during my break at work. In these winter months, day light is so precious and I try to find every opportunity to be out in it. The air was brisk and I just felt so alive. The sidewalks and streets are still pretty covered with snow, so I took a moderate paced stride for 25 minutes. Just enough to make me feel alert and ready to finish my work day. I love being outside so much, whenever I have been outside my workmates always act surprised that I return. They always say, "Oh, you came back!" Like I'm a stray dog that would get distracted and run off. LOL!

Yep, that is all! I know! I can hardly believe it myself! My husband was in shock that I didn't go to the gym tonight! He still expects that I will change my mind and go to the track! I've workout a lot this week and I have a big workout planned for tomorrow, so I thought a light day might be good for me. I've worked out for the past 10 days without a day off. Yea, time for a break!

Anyway, I digress. Ironically, today my nutrition tracker likes me! I'm a little high on fat today, but right on calories! Go figure! 1,637 calories for this day. Not a big calorie burn today. I do feel strangely good about my decision to honor my body's need for a slower pace today. I don't feel lazy or that I'm coping out. So, all and all a nice winters day!
