Walk, walk, walk, walk....

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

My seasonal job is over. The summer holiday is past. I'm sitting in my "office" at home getting ready to do some bookkeeping for a friend and little Star has made herself comfy in the corner beside me. I feel so selfish loving the feeling that she's happy just sitting behind me as I work. Selfishly loving the fact that she just wants to be near me. Cookie's on the sofa enjoying time not having her daughter rough housing with her.

We just came back from our second walk of the day. I used the exercise tracker to see the calories I may have burned. Using the slowest walking speed we're burning 430 calories a day; not much but I'll take it. Over a week though, we burn 3,000 calories. That makes me very happy. Star, Cookie and I are two weeks into our lives together and about 5,500 calories burned (accounting for a few work days were we didn't do our 4 walks a day). Unfortunately, my ass is still burning after every walk and I'm anxious for that to stop. Funny the things we pick for goal markers in our lives. I'll feel more fit if my ass stops hurting during and after exercising. How silly am I?
