you would never guess..
what this picture has to do with physical exercise..but .. here's a quick story..
since i was feeling so happy about wrapping up my appointments and nutrition appointments..i thought it would be great to celebrate..and my first thought was..
"ooh a nice big chocolate milkshake"
and if i could have shot myself a dirty look.. i so would have! ..what the heck! celebrate all the hoop jumping for insurance and celebrating with a milkshake?!!! i don't even drink milkshakes.
so my second thought was a nice sweat session at the gym ..felt like rocking out my ipod tunes..so it was a date.
i drove my sister to work.. and on the way home..i passed a dog curled up on the side of the road.. (alive,..just looked like he was relaxin)
i pulled onto a side street where i looked for my local police # and tried to get a hold of the dog warden..no such luck..couldn't even leave a message..ugh, that's frustrating. so i do a u-turn and drive past the dog again and park on a side street.
i was nervous about approaching a strange dog..but ..at that point I couldn't help it..but then he saw me coming and ran out into the traffic.
so I ran out into the traffic and waved everyone to stop.. and then I started jogging after the dog..every time I got close..he sped up.. this went on for a little over a mile..
i was crying and running and then quick walking..i was so bummed that i couldn't help this poor dog. and i'm not even that big of a dog person. so while i was trying to stop my calves and feet from falling off..i stopped for a few secs and snapped this pic on my iphone..
so my plans of going to the gym were now shot..but i did get some activity in ..and that's okay..
