I walked!

Friday, October 11, 2013

So I have been moving a lot more lately, since well before I wasn't moving at all. It was simple really. I just did more house work and pushed through the desire to sit down. I made small changes... folded the laundry standing instead of on the couch. I swept and mopped while the dishes dried instead of sitting and waiting. Needless to say my house is totally clean! It feels good. It feels really good.

Something happened today. I went to spend time with my friend and our kids play together. She said she was going to go on a walk later. Naturally... (hahah) I planned to leave around that time... I even wanted to. But instead I decided heck! why not! So I went on a walk today. It was super short. and man I felt heavy doing it and was even looking forward to ending it! But the point to me is that I walked. I went for a walk even though I didn't want to. Don't get me wrong I love walks per say, its the effort of moving my body when I feel heavy and the sweating the discomfort I don't like... and today I pushed through it for like a quick thirty mins and it was lovely. I felt better afterwards. And as I left her house a bit later, I felt empowered and didn't stop for a pop or fast food snack as I would have before. I felt good I walked and decided to keep the positive choices on a roll (with out butter or seconds of course!)

Keep moving! Even though I was sweaty and my knee hurt and I felt heavy the whole walk.... I still felt better than when I eat a cheeseburger or fries. Just saying....

    Way to Go! I am glad that you made that decision to walk and that you felt good about it afterwards. That heavy feeling will go away the more you walk. What a great decision you made to stay and keep your friend company. Could she be a regular walking buddy for you?
