I just got back from a 45-minute walk. With all my being I did not want to walk especially at 10:00 AM, but it was in the 40s this morning so I waited. But you know I waited too long. I left with a long sleeve cotton pull over on, and came back with sweat. Of course even when it’s dark outside at 6:45 lately I’ve been coming back with sweat. That’s a good thing. Right? Sweating out toxins. This afternoon it is flip flops and short sleeves weather. Only in Texas.
I have to be honest with you. I am not a person that likes to exercise, but being honest again I need to take off a whole bunch of weight. I have been carrying it way too long, and well I keep trying and failing. You know it’s an addiction – eating and not exercising.
I don’t like to walk – because you know it’s boring, but much more exciting then getting on that treadmill. I enjoyed some of it as a hawk kept flying over me. I wasn’t sure if he was after me or something else, and then my next door neighbor drove by me on her bike and we chatted a bit.
Benefits of walking:
- Hopefully losing weight, but at least maintaining.
- Strengthening my bones and muscles.
- Hopefully a longer life.
- Uplifting – mood
- It’s supposed to help blood pressure – we’ll see.
So I’ve sit down this afternoon and come up with a free printable for you and me. Verses I can hang up and be reminded every day to be strong.
