19 Pairs of Socks
Sunday, September 09, 2018
Today, I found a new way to measure success on my healthy lifestyle journey. No, it is not the scale and how much weight I have lost, nor is it whether my clothes fit better. Nope, it is not how many calories I have eaten or how many minutes I exercised. It is socks - 19 pairs of socks to be exact.
After washing workout clothes, I do not put socks into the dryer. Rather, I hang them to dry in the bathroom: on every towel bar, on the countertop, wherever a sock can hang. Today, when I finished hanging the socks, everywhere I looked was a sock. Running socks, hiking socks, socks worn to the gym, socks worn for walks during lunch. Socks, socks, and more socks. I counted: 19 pairs. Two people wore 19 pairs of socks over the course of one week.
The socks do not lie (they hang). We are living an active lifestyle.
