I had to start over at day 6...... I have been out of town and down with a cold, so I haven't done any running (or much of anything at all) in a while. I started last night, with day 6, thinking I'd be fine. And I was, for a while.... then I started coughing. Which meant I peed. On my shoe. Stop laughing, darn it! It was mortifying! There I stood, in the middle of the road, in the midst of coughing fit, with pee running down my leg - and into my shoe. Unfortunately, there was nothing I could do but keep going. I was about half-way in my loop, so turn back or push on - it was the same distance. All I could do was push on, squish-ily, and hope I didn't have to cough again until I got home.
Since I use my phone as an iPod, I clicked the music player off and called the Old Broad when I was a few minutes away from home. She laughed at me too, which I guess I deserve, since I laughed at her when she peed on herself on a walk. We heard a loud "pop" that I guess was a firecracker, and she jumped, screamed and peed a little. I all but laid down in the middle of the road laughing at her, so I deserved the same reaction last night.
We talked (okay, whined) to each other about not doing anything, and decided that we had to get back at it. I gave up the cigarettes, which has been hard, and makes me want to eat pretty much everything that isn't nailed down, but I'm glad I am trying..... On the other hand, I'm mad as a hornet that I've gained 5 lbs. and now weigh in at 150. I look, for all the world, like a traffic barrel!! So, the Old Broad and I are back - and this time we are going to try really hard to stick with this - all the way to the end!
