Another day outside!

Thursday, March 04, 2010

To a large group of people it probably sounds silly, being so excited that I went for a walk outside 2 days in a row. For my fellow Spark People you understand...the old me rarely went outside and never went for a walk on my own. But I did it! I gathered up all my energy, packed up my 2 yr old & our new walking kit (with some additions after yesterday's walk) and just did it. That is a huge step for me.

Living in Minnesota you deal with the cold 6 month winters and the way I dealt was by not going outside. With my new healthier lifestyle, I'm learning new ways of dealing with the winter. I played in the snow with my kids, went sledding, tried teaching my daughter to ice skate (I think it would go better if I really knew how to ice skate!) and I've taken to walking in our local school. We've had great weather the last couple days that I've seized by taking a walk while my daughter was at preschool. I will admit I am sore today, probably more from the couple times I slipped on the ice, but I am hoping to make this one habit I can be proud of & never break!

    That's great that you are getting outside, getting active, and especially including your children! It will be life changing for them as well.
    I was happy to not have to wear my yaktracks when I went running yesterday! A little slushy and still a little slick at intersections but the run outside was great (wet socks and all)!

    Yes I understand completely because I used to just stay inside durning those long cold winter months. The hardest part is making up your mind to go out. Once you are out, you have all kind of fun and the time passes by quickly. emoticon emoticon emoticon
