I'm getting faster :)

Thursday, October 04, 2012

I started walking everyday about two and half weeks ago. It's made a significant difference in my weight loss journey AND I am getting faster each week. When I started I could only walk a mile in 19 to 20 minutes. Yesterday I made it in 16.5 minutes. Since my ankle/feet injuries make running out of the question I will need to expand my route to keep my fitness minutes up and to continually challenge my body. Plus my pedometer came in the mail today so I can start tracking my steps. Very excited about that addition to my weight loss journey as well. I am really enjoying watching my body change even in small increments, like walking a mile 2.5 minutes faster or 2 pounds lighter. It makes me hopeful that things will change. That I will change and this to shall pass.

    I also started walking to get in better shape. I started walking at work on my breaks and lunch break. I am now walking a 15-16 minute mile also. Keep pushing you can do it. emoticon emoticon
