Ugh! This morning was the most uncomfortable morning yet. I stepped out the door and felt like I walked straight into a sauna. I have been spoiled with some cool mornings. The whole time I was walking I was thinking about how much farther I had to go and if I wanted to turn for home. Every step was a potential crossroad.
I did manage to make it through the whole distance, but my time was in no way impressive. At a certain point I just decided to let the pace be what it was and be happy to get in three miles. Getting overheated could trigger my health issues - I'd rather not have to deal with that potential derailment. I have been extremely grateful for the cool(ish) summer we are having, so I can really focus on my exercise without fear. Heading into August that could change. I want to be outside as much as possible, but at least we have a gym option too.
I made a slight detour this morning and walked on a couple of different streets. So, now I know where a sheriff's deputy lives. Hope I don't need that information...and 911 is probably more effective than running (or walking, in my case) through the neighborhood to a deputy's house.
Still working on my walking selfie. Please share any tips you have. I still can't seem to get it quite right.
Oh, speaking of needing help. I have done a couple of the blog hops recently. I always try to add the link/button to my blog post, but I can't get it to work. I am obviously missing something. I don't want to be known as the blogger that never links back to the host. If someone could explain how to do I would be extremely grateful.
This evening after dinner we spent a little time in the garden. I picked and my husband watered. This is the first year I have grown broccoli. I bought 4 plants in late spring. Knowing they were a cool weather crop, I didn't have high expectations. I saw some for sale at the farmers' market and talked with the vendor. Since it hadn't produced yet she thought it was going to happen. Here it is today - before I picked broccoli for the third time. Every time I cut it, it grows back even more. We do love our broccoli.
Millie insists that she is helping me hunt for cucumbers. I can't believe how easily cucumbers hide in the vines. I have had a couple get away from me this year and end up the size of large zucchini before I found them.
Turns out Millie was just looking for an opportunity to steal green beans...goofy pup!
Today was a much better day than the last few. I seemed to have weathered another storm and feel like I am in a good place to keep going with this journey. Thank you all for your kind words of support and advice.
