There and Back Again

OK, so I am back on this thing, once again chronicling my efforts to maintain some kind of fitness regimen and eat better. Summer was fun, but it was ghastly unhealthy foodwise. Delicious, but I can't do that indefinitely if I want to live to see 50.

So, as of about 2 1/2 weeks ago, I started walking to and from work again. I don't do it every day, and when I say to and from, it really should be to or from as I decided it really only makes good sense to do one walk per day. I might change my mind on that, but it does seem to be working so far.

I haven't seen huge weight loss, but there is a little which is good. That's how it started the last time. I figure if I do what I did 4 years ago, I should hit my goals with little difficulty.

If anything, I'm walking more now than I was 4 years ago. My goal for an average walking distance was 5 miles, but I've been going well above that. Starting Sunday this week, I've already walked 17.5 miles as of Tuesday morning, so I'm clearly getting distance in. I took today for a rest day because I think it's a mistake to do it for more than 3 days in a row the way I've been going. Legs feel pretty good, and energy levels are a lot higher than they have been in the past.

To be honest, I'm rather embarrassed at how far I've let myself go, but I also let that embarrassment keep me from doing anything about it. I remember when I lost the weight the first time that I swore up and down that I'd never let myself go again. Well, be careful what you swear I guess.

Anyway, I feel good. Woke up early today, felt good, felt energetic, and clear headed. I'm relatively optimistic that whatever damage I did to myself in the last year or so can be undone.
