a good week one footstep at a time

Friday, October 28, 2011

I tried to take this week one footstep at a time and I was able to really exceed my fitness goals for the week. I felt a little better this week re/my health issues and so I pushed myself. I walked my usual short walk-the-dogs loop on Wed which I do several times a day so the dogs can go potty. Wed, however, I got to the place where I cross the street to be back on my road and I just decided to turn right instead.....I wasn't sure how far I'd go......just a few footsteps....just one at a time. It was a gorgeous day on Wednesday. I walked all the way to the state park....maybe half a mile.....then I got on one of the trails. Then I remembered my passion for hiking these trails. THEN I just kept taking trails to the right until the next thing I knew, I was having a blast. I might have overdone it a bit....the dogs slept for the rest of the day after our near 6-mile hike. I felt great for the rest of that day and the next! I did a little extra on several other days this week, and I am so proud of my hard work. It boiled down to just one step....then another and another. The dogs were very enthusiastic and I allowed that enthusiasm to flood into my mind! It was a great week for getting back to hiking and for getting back to sparkpeople! One step at a time. Go ahead! Try it! One step, then another!

Love to each and every one of you working hard and encouraging others! Thank you!
