I seem to be brooding a little this week, or, as I told a friend last night, feeling kind of like nobody likes me and nothing I do is right. I know it'll pass, but in the meantime, I wanted to share the highlight of my week: two walks up hill.
Seriously up hill. On Monday I walked up Sacramento St. from downtown to Russian Hill. Last night I walked up from North Beach Union to Polk and along Polk to Sacramento. And then up Sacramento to Gough. That Union St. stretch is about a 300 foot ascent over a few blocks. And I didn't pass out. And I could talk pretty much all the way up the hill. And it wasn't a huge struggle.
Why is this a big deal? First, because, without a car, I walk a lot, and my inability to do so has significantly limited my lifestyle for the last several months. Second, because I need to walk several miles a day to manage stress, and I haven't been able to do that, and I've been cranky as a result. And cranky leads to brooding and brooding leads to nothing good at all.
And also? I wanted a cannoli. And I've finally gained back all the weight I lost while I was sick, plus a few extra pounds. This wouldn't be a problem, except that now most of my pants don't fit too well. New pants are expensive, but walking is free.
