The sunshine was beautiful and rather than hitting the gym, I decided to go for a walk. The route that I began walking by my office 10 months ago, used to seem impossible...in fact, when I first started walking at 220lbs., the route was MUCH shorter.
Today as I blasted my iPod and walked quickly with purpose, the same path I have walked numerous times, seemed to have magically changed!?
Wait...I was halfway through the whole route in 11 minutes?! Uh, next thing I know, I was almost back to the office and hadn't noticed the "hill" I always seemed to find a bit strenuous. How the heck did I walk up it without even noticing?!
In an effort to keep this short...in 10 short months, I have gone from 220 lbs and having this walk seem like a hard exercise...to a 165 lb. person, who gracefully retraced her steps (quickly and easily).
Of course I had to add to the route today....I wanted to walk for at least 30 minutes!
