Maybe we all need bicycles

Thursday, September 29, 2011

I thought this was kind of cute....maybe we need to bicycle or walk more then always jumping into the car and going

Summer is coming to an end

Monday, September 12, 2011

Summer is quickly coming to an end....Were did it go? ..seems it just flew by.Today was so beautiful.The sun shone the temperates were way up there around 30 c....what a wonderful day for a walk along the board walk.As i walked i reflected on the kms i have walked along there over the last year..i am sure i could have walked to lesleys had i put all the km together.i wanted to just keep on walking today.
Tomorrow the weather is supposed to change.We are going to get some rain which is ok but the temperatures are going to drop.
Going from wearing shorts and tank type top one day to long pants and sweater the next day. I am so sad. i am going to miss the walks on boardwalk. You see when the colder weather comes with the winds it bothers my sinus so i cant be walking on boardwalk along the water.It is so pretty though.
I guess it will walking the mall again and days when i dont want to walk mall or i cant i will turn to my new treadmil which by the way i havent had time to try out yet.
Well that is just a bit about my end of summer..It has been good. H ad some great walks in Sudbury on the trails with lesley and family.

    This summer was one of the most amazing summers i have had in a long time i have made alot of lasting memories that will last a life time alot of those memories include you ma. Even though i too am a little sad to see the summer come to an end i love the Fall. Its my favourite time of year. I know you view it as everything dying but i see it as beauty and although somethings will die it makes way for new things to emerge when spring comes again. I too hate having to shovel and the cold but its also pretty watching the beautiful snow flakes fall from the sky. Im sure you will find things to do even though summer has gone. You just need to be creative just think when its cold it gives you an excuse to snuggle up to that special someone in our lives lol.

    Oh I so hope we do not get a winter like last winter, snow snow snow!
The snow is pretty but I never feel like getting out to walk

I do like the fall so lets think of the fall weather and get out as much as we can.

Hugs Mary

Hiking with my daughter and family

Saturday, August 06, 2011

Last week i was down in Sudbury visiting my daughter and her f amily. Of the 6 evenings i was there we went on hikes some short but others were longer.It was so much fun.I really did enjoy it. The most challenging of them all was the last day when we walked between 8 and 9 km return. Yes i do walk 10 km every day but this wasn't the usually flat terrain. No way it was up rugged hills and down rugged hills and along rocky paths. It was a real workout for even me .For me who does so much walking i was feeling tired out by the time we finished.I was so glad i had done it though. my daughter Lesley has to be commended for doing the hike. I know it was not easy for her.i am so very proud of her. I do miss not going on those hikes now i am back home but do continue my 10 km walk every day.

Yes Lesley is to be commended for the effort she is putting in now to get into tip top shape. Glad you had a good visit with her!

    Awwwww mom that was so nice of you to do a blog about our hikes. We enjoyed having you come along on these hikes for us . I know i talked about them to you about some of the others and you have seen some of the other photos but i think for you to really understand just how hard i am working and how focused i am you had to truly experience what we do. These hikes are not just an average walk on a flat and straight trail they are up and down alot of hills and rocks and it makes me work my body out good and hard. For someone who walks 10 k a day then to experience this and to be tired out you can imagine how i felt lugging up this obese body. I did it though its almost biggest loser style. Its nice to know though that i have your support and the support of my family. Thats what keeps me pushing forward. I think how great i feel when im done. Its also great to have the support of sparkpeople too.You have been here through the good the bad and the ugly. Thanks again for sharing in this journey Mom and all my spark buddies. great blog mom

You look great. I hope to look as good as you.

Nice Day for Walking

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

today i went for my 10 km walk..it was overcast and cool when i started but as my walk went on the sun broke through the clouds and it got pretty warm. i Have been finding it so lonely and boring walking by myself but my daughter gave me the inspiration to just go it and enjoy and that i did

    I try to get my 6 miles in by 700am. I am one that loves walking alone.
BUT In the evening I sometimes take the dog and her buggie out, all depends on my day.

You keep up the good walking, maybe you will find someone that wants to walk with you.

Love Mary

    So glad you enjoyed your walk. I loved reading about it. Thanks for blogging. Maybe your daughter would walk with you? Or a friend? Maybe you'd enjoy an MP3 player? A 10K is a long walk for a start. You must be in pretty good shape. Good for you.

    Hooray for stepping out! I love my walks, even by myself. Whether I just enjoy the lovely yards, listen to fav music on my IPod, pray for the neighbors as I go, or just use the time to process the busy-ness of life, it's always good! I mix up route each time I go, so it's never the same. Today I walked on the opposite side of the street, and saw things I hadn't noticed before! Oh, and Welcome to Spark People -we look forward to getting to know you!

    Sometimes I don't feel like going, but once I am out in the fresh air, I am glad to have pushed through the "I don't wanna". :)

Sometimes I try out new areas/parks to walk, or I try to find fun places to walk that are near an errand I will be running that day.

Have fun out there! emoticon

    I'm happy you had a good walk! That is my FAVORITE thing to do. Walk. I love walking alone most of the time. It's me time. I can go fast, slow, talk to myself and just enjoy the sights. I actually took a 2 hour walk today. Feels so good after! Enjoy all your walks!
