I was back on the treadmill this afternoon. I decided I would only walk for 30 minutes, rather than doing any running. I also chose to read a book while I walked.
It worked out pretty well for about 20 minutes. I was distracted by the book, which made the time pass quickly. Only problem was, once I was 20 minutes into it, I started feeling ucky. I tossed the book down and walked the last 10 minutes without distraction.
(I'm not sure you're aware of this, but I have dizziness/motion issues and have to be careful with things that can set it off.)
I never did recover from the ucky feeling. When I walk I feel a little dizzy and just *bleccckkk!*. It even makes me want to eat a little crazy, too, but I'm not falling to that temptation. I've worked too hard this week to succumb to a silly craving that is basically "smoke and mirrors".
It seems this feeling should subside overnight. I don't even know that I'm feeling it completely now. We shall see what happens tomorrow and whether I will get back on that treadmill or not.
My husband has reminded me repeatedly today that if I don't get on the treadmill tomorrow...NO PHILOSOPHY LIP GLOSS. It's funny how perspective changes. I'm not even sure that would bother me. I know the work I've put in this week by exercising, sticking to my food boundaries, and drinking 8 glasses of water a day. All of that success is confidence-building. I doubt I need the lip gloss incentive now.
I'll let you know how it all works out.
