I went walking this morning. For the first time in...it feels like forever.
I do think I'm still losing weight, despite the lack of exercise (I can't get motivated for Pakua, either.) I can hold my hands behind my back more easily - and this is meaningful. Until I started the diet, it was a strain to just clasp my hands behind my back. Now I can hold a wrist. But getting out and walking (and then the lovely, lovely shower after) is a good thing.
The mp3 player made a difference - nothing like walking to up, bouncy, rock-oriented filk. I was one step from dancing. I'd started with listening to the tape lecture on evolution, but that's much more suited to making dinner or knitting.
I also had a teaspoon of peanut butter beforehand and carried a bottle of water for the walk, and had what's become my latest breakfast after the shower and getting dressed - cornflakes and soy milk. I don't like cow's milk, but soy milk is pretty darn good over cereal. I measure the cornflakes carefully, of course, since 1 cup=1.5 carb exchanges and I'm allowed one carb exchange for breakfast. But 2/3 cup is a decent portion. I don't measure the soy milk because I like my cereal barely moistened. That and some fruit and maybe almond slices - YUM.
Meanwhile, I can't stop paying attention for a minute - I look away and the next thing I know, SGA fandom is in a minor *tizzy*. Not that I have any comment on this. I don't. I'm just...bemused.
