I walked home from the Kmart today (8,761 steps - 6.1 km). Why? Because I could!
All the way home I was thinking about last year when I became ill and had no energy and was too overweight. DH had to park the car really close to the Doctor's surgery every time he took me because I could hardly walk to the car. So today I was springing along in the sunshine thinking how glad I am to feel healthy and fit and happy. I have decided that I can walk anywhere and as far as I want to, but I must have a purpose. I don't really like to just go for a walk. If I know I am going somewhere to do something, or buy something, or have lunch, or see someone, I don't mind how far I walk. So I will try to find a purpose for a long walk each day.
I think it often takes a health scare or a major event in our life for us to change our ways, I know it certainly did with me. Now I just want to yell out to people and tell them how much better I feel and how everyone should try to get that little bit healthier
(I won't though, I'll just tell you, because they might think I'm just going nuts!!!)
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
