So this winter, I successfully gained 10 pounds and completely regressed my physical condition. It could be worse I suppose. I am acutely aware that I have arthritis in my back – symptoms of which were less when I was exercising regularly. Hopefully, the pain will ease up as I get back into shape. When I first resumed walking, I couldn’t go further than a half mile before my lower back started burning, radiating through my hips. It sucked. Today however, I managed to slow it down a bit (relative term I suppose – still doing 15 minute miles) and pull three miles out of my hat, only stopping once to stretch my back. I suspect it’ll only take a few weeks to get this pain to be manageable. Once again, kicking myself in the ass for making a mess of myself, but taking responsibility for it and moving on. Seems that’s all I do – buck up and move on. I walked 5 days in a row and lost 3 pounds this week. Not too shabby. I think I’ll cancel my gym membership since its probably not going to snow anymore.

My pearl of wisdom for the day is; when you least want to do something (like wake up at 4:30 in the morning to go for a friggin’ walk), best to just do it regardless. At some point it’ll stop being a chore and become routine.
