Ok, so I didn't run yesterday morning, but I did take the girls to the park and walked around the path for 1 mile! It may sound easy to you, but pushing a double stroller over a walking path that has more hills then flat spots is quite the task! I felt great afterwards. We ran into Tammy and Tina, two moms from church, and their kids playing on the jungle gym. So we stayed and played for another hour. Is was great fun... will definatley have to do it again.
I worked out again last night for an hour. I timed myself for the first time on the mile run... 16:20. A turtle pace compared to Angie's 11 min miles!! But I will get there... I have faith! I also worked out my upper body and am feeling a little sore.. but all around better!! I have my Kempo class this morning. Three hours of kicking, punching and pure torture. I LOVE IT!! Angie gave me great advice about taking it a minute at a time. That helped alot yesterday. I walked into the kitchen alot in the afternoon, but everytime I reached for something to snack on, I just thought of that advice... grabbed a glass of water or cup of tea... and told myself to wait another 15 minutes. By the time I did that 4 times... an hour had gone by and I was too full from all the water I drank to eat anything. I also got in a couple of miles walking to the bathroom and back! LOL
So, all in all, I think I am off to a good start. Feeling good, inside and out.
A couple of people asked me who Tigerlilly was... Most of my family knows that as a young girl my dad nicknamed me Tiger. It followed me thru the years. As I got older, it turned into Tigerlilly. I guess I had blossomed!! So, to me, Tigerlilly is a strong, athletic and healthy girl. She can do anything she sets her mind to, and has her whole life ahead of her. So in all of this, I guess I am on my way to finding Tigerlilly once again! I know she is still in there somewhere.. !!
Looking towards a hectic weekend... but am feeling strong!
