I just came back from walking. And today I walked 2.1 miles. Six weeks ago I started weight watchers. I’ve lost 12 pounds.
Five weeks ago, I started walking again. The purpose of this blog in the first place was to be accountable while I got fit before my 50th birthday. I started and stopped, just like I had started and stopped the walking and eating healthy…so many times.
But now, with the help of weight watchers, I feel like I’ve found my zone. And I make sure I go walking. I started walking a mile five weeks ago. Kicked it up to 1.5 miles for a couple of weeks with slightly more mileage at times. I throw on my iPod with rockin music and I walk hard.
I wasn’t so sure about the two miles because after 1.5, I feel it. But today, I made it the full two miles. It was easier than I thought. And now I feel strong.
And to think I almost didn’t get out there at all today. It was raining this morning when I usually walk. I’m taking a day off from my side business and everything else today (the beauty of the three-day weekend) and I was lounging on the couch watching TV when I decided, “Nope, the sun came out. Let me get my sneakers on and get out there.” I’m so glad I did!
And when I feel like I feel right now, after the walk, I wonder why it is that I ever stopped!
I lost a pound this week at WW and Kate, my daughter lost a pound too.
