Now it's me!

Friday, May 30, 2014

So almost on a daily basis, I look out my kitchen window and watching people walking by in workout gear and headphones in check. And I'm always thinking to myself, I need to go out there and walk too. Almost 8 years ago (at my heaviest), I started walking at a local park. I wouldn't leave that park till I got 10,000 steps in. With watching my calories and doing that alone, I lost nearly 50 lbs in about 4 months. It's something that is so healthy and usually the easier of what can be done physically. I'm perfectly capable, so what's my excuse? I don't have one. So this morning. I got up and walked for an hour. I got 5,500 steps in but I'm not going to complain because I'm going to work my way back up to 10,000 steps again. And I'm going to get back down to what I was a few years ago before my body started turning against me. I NEED TO DO THIS! I'M GOING TO DO THIS!!

    I also watch people walk back and forth all day long. i live at the end of a walking bridge in my fairly busy town. I have had this nagging feeling as i watch people out and about in the sun of this pretty spring weather and wondered what was missing. You nailed it!! Me. Im missing out on the sun and fresh air and sights of my town. Thanks for posting these thoughts!! And good luck getting that goal!! emoticon

    Way to get back on the horse! I know for me, it's never a good idea to stay focused on "what was". Let's both keep our eyes on today and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment emoticon

    Never give up, never surrender!
