Welcome Carrie

Give yourself time to adjust to the new pattern. If you can drink 5 glasses of the 8 aim for a 6 for a few days until it gets easier. Walking buddies are sometimes hard to come by. Mine is my ipod and I listen to audiobooks and podcasts. Consider a dog and if you can't have a dog, do what I do sometimes and borrow one. Many of my friends and neighbors have dogs that never get enough walking and they are happy to lend them to me to exhaust them. emoticon

4 Noble Truths

1. Suffering is a part of life
2. Suffering is caused by our attachments and avoidances.
3. Suffering can be ended.
4. Freedom from suffering is possible by following the Eightfold path.

Bigotry disguised as morality is still bigotry just as an outhouse with
marble columns is still an outhouse.

Welcome. I've tried walking with others. It was always hard to get our schedules together. It would be nice, but I've learned to walk with the dog (another buddy, but this one is pretty captive) and listen to books on my mp3.

Do Not Expect Perfection, and Do Not Sit in Silence

To eat is a necessity.
To eat intelligently is an art.

PEACE- it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still BE CALM IN YOUR HEART.

Hi Carrie and emoticon

It is emoticon to have a buddy walk with you when they can. Have you posted in the city where you live to see if you can meet with other SP members to go for walks?

I have done it and have met a few emoticon 's and we go walking etc..

Hi and welcome :-)

Walking is great - I enjoy it too.

Don't stress too much about the water and calorie count, just do your best and see how it goes tomorrow :-)

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.
