I had a wonderful time at the rec center today. 14 laps around the track equals a mile and to go slow and not push myself too hard I started out by running one and then walking one. It still gave me a pretty good workout and I was sweating by the time I got done. Before leaving I hopped in the sauna to clear some of the toxins out of my body. I found sitting in there with a water bottle makes it so much better. I’m not sure what a safe amount of time is to be in a sauna so I am limiting my duration to no more than 15 minutes. Usually by then I am so hot and cannot stand another minute. It’s a little awkward since the sauna is so small and it’s very quiet inside but it feels so wonderful when I leave that it’s completely worth it. I need to find my IPod which is in one of the boxes I have yet to unpack. Once I have that I can really start getting on a machine after running my laps. My slip up of the day came when I went home and made pasta. I felt very guilty but it was a small plate and I used Tapatio instead of actual sauce. Welcome to the new me! I hope you are all thinking of healthy ways you can change your life. Trust me if I can do it so can you!
