First Sunday in Football Season!

It is cool outside - up to 48º now at 10 a.m. - and yesterday I made a big pot of chicken soup. In the interest of full disclosure - this photo is from last year about this time when I made a pot of chicken soup. I am too lazy to take a photo of soup that looks identical with the exception that it has wild rice in it instead of noodles.

I went to the 6: 30 meeting this morning and then went out for breakfast with "the girls" from the group. It was lovely. I seldom go to that meeting on Sundays, so it was a treat.

Then I came home and took a brisk 3 mile walk. It is HARD to write that. Walk. Not Run. Walk. But that is what I am doing right now. Mainly walking. Not running. I can't figure out what I am doing, but I have to do something, and for now, walking will do. My back and hip are so jacked up I just can't seem to run more than a mile or so. And "a mile or so" is not going to keep the tonnage from packing on. A gal in my home group is a personal trainer, I may resort to asking her to help me. Which will hurt me deeply. She is a giggly blonde girl who weighs about 3 lbs., and works as a personal trainer.

I went to my favorite running store yesterday to see if they had the running skirt I wanted. They didn't, but appreciated me coming there instead of ordering it online. They will get it for me next week. That will be exciting - and I will let you know all about it!

And now I shall go sit on the sofa and watch me some football. The Broncos are predicted to go 3-13 this year. Should be a fun year, eh?

It would have been nice to see the wild rice, but ce la vie.

Nothing wrong with walking either, especially when eating noodles.

I just started back walking the other day, it's been so hot here and I have avoided it.

I had to giggle about the 3# giggly blond!

Hope you enjoyed the end of the Broncos game and the first Sunday of football.

I think I'll run a short run tomorrow. We'll see.

Hope you have a good day.

I know how you feel about the walking. It is hard to wrap your head around it, it feels like you are not working hard enough. But your walk is most people's run, so don't worry so much. I have a personal trainer, and building a couple #'s of muscle really helps. Go for it, maybe she will give you a deal!

We missed you this week end, someday we will all sit at a meeting together;)

Walking or crawling, you're still an inspiration of discipline and willingness to me. My wish is that you're able to return to the exercise of your choice soon.

At least she's not the 3# jiggly, giggly blond...

I still wish we had the other kind of football but I hope you enjoy the game - is it too early to say "maybe next year?"

Blessings and aloha...

A running skirt is best viewed while walking.

ticks me off, my running skirt isn't in either ;-)

I don't think that walking is a bad thing. In fact, my doctor told me that it was a lot better on my bones to walk than to run. The personal trainer sounds like a good idea.
