Walking isn't so horrible...anymore!

Monday, August 02, 2010

tonight's walk wasn't so bad; my first days of walking were horrendous,
I was achey, creaky, puffing, and agonized.
Tonight.. was almost good.
I'm re-learning my pace, how use my arms, and whole body.
How to stretch and prepare for the walk.

I've learned to keep my head up, and see the lovely countryside,
and not stare at the road, and complaining.

And I'm enjoying my eating plan!
Now my husband wants to get in on it!

but I can't do it for him.. only he can do it for him.
So we shall see.
But I'm doing this for me,
for my health, and well being,
for my sense of self,
and for my future.

So far, so good.

    I've always loved walking, I try to go somewhere with my family every weekend for a really good walk. It's great because you get to see some really good views and get some fresh air and exercise, carrying our 2 year old in the backpack burns those few extra calories and our 4 year old is one of the fittest little boys around (handles a 5 mile walk over the mountains round our town in about an hour and a half no troubles at all)
