I walked my daily walk yesterday - and it was less than beneficial.
I was literally draggin' my feet. In fact, a fellow walker/fast-walker streamlined right by me and I said,
"Hey, Dude - you gotta' an awesome pace there. And here I am draggin' my feet."
"Awe, now," he replied, "the pace don't matter. Just as long as you walk."
But I believe he was incorrect. I believe that the pace does indeed matter - and not only that - but the energy BEHIND the pace also matters.
And my energy yesterday was lacking...and again, "dragging".
So I traced my steps for that day and wondered why....
It came down to inappropriate carb choices:
I ate an apple (way too much natural sugar for me) and I had a turkey sandwich ("bad" combination of meat and bread).
Both choices were a mistake.
I should have chosen a pear instead of that apple...and maybe some strawberries (both pears and strawberries are awesome calorie-killing fruits).
The turkey in the sandwich was okay - but not the bread.
For me, anyway. (It was a bad mix. Bread and meat. Nay.)
Everyone's matabolism is different. But for me, bread, pasta, and apples are the wrong three-ring circus for me to play in.
They just don't work.
My body gets bloated, I have less energy - and my pace in exercising is thrown off.
As a result, I have a less-than happy day.
Happy days should transpire EVERY day.
Be CONSCIOUS of what works for you, and what doesn't - physically, emotionally, psychologically and in every way, every day. And your days will be happy, long-term (and not just with short-term satisfaction that, ultimately, proves to be destructive - or energy-draining).
