Whew! I cut it close this morning. I walked up the steps to the elevated street and right on the bus this morning. Okay, so time to move the out-the-door time to 7:43. 7:45 is cutting it just too close. Had an interesting interaction this morning as I was walking into the building at work. I arrived, but from another direction, just in time to hold the door open to the shuttle-bus-from-the-parking-lot riders. One woman asked me "Where do you park?" and I said "I ride the bus to work". She looked rather stunned and didn't say a word. Public transportation in this town is so not mainstream.
Got in some more gymtime last night. Just an hour walking on the treadmill. I had talked myself out of walking to the store, as I had enough leftovers to get me through last night and lunch today, but I was getting a bit maudlin, so it was time to get the hell out of the house, see other people and practice a little distraction. There are usually more people in the gym in the evenings. Plus, I watched some cable, which was nice.
Different topic: Set Point. Us longtime dieting folks have heard of this concept and if my experience is true, I do believe such a thing exists and do believe I am at it. Right in the low 150s is where my body just seems to want to be - at this level of exercise. I'm not complaining - I just find it interesting. It will be interesting to see how the increased walking changes this or if it does. Either way, I'm fine with it. Anyone else have experience with this? Do you have a set point?
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Shake things up.
