Walked and ran outside for the first time.

It sucked, actually. I can't tell how fast I'm going, there is no water bottle holder and nobody to hand me a towel because I'm drenched.

And it was HOT. Sheesh. I'm spoiled!

I did find a cool new route to the neighborhood pool though!

339 calories, 2.81 miles and 37 minutes on the treadmill.

Haven't felt like exercising at all since David's passing.

Haven't felt much like eating, either, so at least that's good.

Did yoga today instead of a gym workout.

Our work offers free yoga during the lunch hour twice weekly and it is fantastic. I try to go twice a week because it really helps the sanity level!

Works all the major muscle groups, too.

Ode to Flag Day

A flag is just a piece of cloth
Vulnerable to fire or to moth

You can hoist it way up high
And watch it flap against the sky

You can make it orange or green
Or any color in between

With shapes like hexagons or squares
And sometimes lions or even bears

Stars and stripes get used a lot
But seldom ever polka dots

The colors I am partial to
Seem to be red white and blue

The white for right, the blue for true
The red: blood shed, for me and you

(Ol' Betsy Ross, she musta knew)

Started going to the gym in the morning. Whew! What a way to wake up!

I have to get out of bed at 5:30 a.m. I realize that this is not that early but when you're used to 6:00 a.m. and nothing between the bed and the shower, getting dressed and out to the bus so early can be challenging! The bus comes around 6:25 a.m. and I get downtown to the gym (right next to my office) at 7:05. Work out for an hour, shower and clocked in by 8:30. Pretty sweet.

So, my first day - 2.27 miles, 32 minutes and 268 calories on the Elliptical.

Yay me!
