Adventures in Walking ....

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Well I added walking into my daily routine on 4/4/14. I have been faithfully walking each day atleast 50-53 minutes which is about 2.55 miles.

My gluts are still sore as well as my thighs but I don't mind - means I am working it! I use a walking stick to help push me uphill. I had been using my cellphone for music but today I used a radio with earplugs. Good thing because I needed to charge up my phone and I really didn't want to walk without music.

I almost didn't walk today because I had been out of the house from 9:30am to 2:45pm. I had gone to a dr. appt then to one walmart to get 3 shirts for my friends & I to wear ~ more on that later. Then to dollar tree and then on to the other walmart closer to my home to get some groceries, son's prescription. By the time I got home I was exhausted. I waited til my son got home from school and out the door I went walking stick in hand and music around my neck.

Now about those shirts. I have to BFFs and one is having a birthday on Friday. We girls try to have lunches at Chilis every so often. On our birthdays we try to get together and we wear a t-shirt we have decorated and date it, etc. So I went and decided on NEON ORANGE out of the men's dept. And we will decorate them before we go to Chilis.

A little history - Over a year ago our picture was on 2 Chilis menus. I had entered a contest and won a $50 chilis card. I promptly took my friends out to lunch. We each have one of the menus. We signed one of the menus so our local Chilis could frame it and hang it. Our local Chilis loves us!

And I will take my walk on Friday before I get ready for that birthday celebration! It's also my weigh & measure day.

In the lower left hand corner is our picture in the Chilis FB page and along with others were on their Twitter page for awhile. emoticon emoticon
