I take a deep breath in and feel my lungs expand. I exhale and feel my body relax. I move my legs as I step forward. I don't know how long I have been walking. All I know is that I feel completely at peace. The sun is hot but once in awhile there is a gentle breeze that provides some sort of relief. I continue to walk and thank God for the beauty that surrounds me and the life I have.
I used to walk all the time. If I was happy, I would walk. If I was sad, I would walk. If I was just bored, I would walk. A little over a year ago I went through a hard time. I didn't want anyone to see me cry, I didn't want anyone to see me period because I didn't want to answer any questions. I laid in my bed and blocked out everything and everyone.
By being a part of a team I am motivated to keep going. I am very competitive so I definitely don't want to let anyone down. By completing each weeks challenge then I am also creating a habit of being active. As I continue on this journey it will become easier than it has been in the past for me to get out and move.
My goal this summer and for this challenge is to be more active. And you know what? I'm going to accomplish it!!
