Wednesday Feb 19 - Maybe the start of something??

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Well I hope so anyway - after much moaning groaning bitching and excuses (my son calls them excuses - I call them reasons) I've been pondering walking again - going to the Y again (I have silver sneakers so I can use the gym for free).

I kept throwing up roadblocks (excuses/reasons) as to why I couldn't go walk in the park or go to the Y (too cold - I've got errands to run - not wearing the right clothes - where to hide my purse or should I get a fanny pack etc) and on the way home from dropping my son off at work and doing a bit of errands I kept trying to talk myself into walking the local park (that I actually pass every day)

The park has several trails - 2 of which are flat - did one of them 2 times (until my hip started hurting a bit) - good Gawd - how stupidly simple this was - I was overly complicating this whole thing - no one said I had to walk the harder trails - no one said I'd freeze to death walking in 32 degree weather (the sun was out - birds were happy)

So I'm hoping that since I've realized I've made this harder on myself that it really truly was that this will be the start of something going forward and as I get more comfortable with the trails I'll try the harder one and even go back to the Y for the bike and the rower - I just need to get our of my own head!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
