I Make The Rules

Yesterday, I finished a book that I have been reading called "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin. It was a fun, easy read that gave me invaluable information in which I will be using in my daily life. By reading this book, I have completed one of the five healthy living books that I have set out to read as a part of my 25 by 25 list.

5. Read 5 books regarding healthy living (1/5 done)

As I looked at my list, I became alarmed as I noticed an item on my list that hadn't been worked on, and very well could have been.

23. Take our dog on 10 walks and blog about them

We have a mini dachshund, Maximus, and he is the center of my world. If you ask my husband, he will tell you that I am the center of Max's world, as well. I am an animal lover to the core, and I have always wanted a dog to call my own. I love taking care of him and making him happy. He really has done the same for me. He enjoys walking, in fact, we have been on a couple of walks these past few weeks. However, I didn't blog about our walks, such as my list insists.

So, this is me, declaring that I went for 1 out of the 10 walks with little Max yesterday. He loved it! It was about 70 degrees with clear skies. It truly felt like summer out there, yesterday!

After my walk with Max, I went out to the track and completed C25K W3D3. It was tough, mentally. I just wanted to throw in the towel after my first 3 minute run. I'm so glad that I didn't! The second round of intervals are so much easier once you get that first 3 minute run out of the way. I'm nervous because I don't feel like my body is ready to progress to W4D1 and I'm not going to push it, either. If I am not ready, then I will do week 3 for another week. That's the joy of progressing at my own pace. I make the rules!

Do you have any fitness goals for yourself right now?
