|It was Crazy Hair Day!|
Nearly 10 years ago, when I drove Jessica to high school, I would walk for an hour in the neighborhood near her school after I dropped her off. School started at 7:30 and I didn't need to be at work until 9:00 so it worked perfectly into my schedule. At the time, I was the thinnest and lightest I had been in my adult life. In fact, the best comment I received was from my mother-in-law when she asked me where my butt went! Too bad Jessica got her driver's license because once she started driving herself that habit stopped. Since then, I've gained 15 pounds and my skinny-girl jeans are definitely not fitting.
I want to be able to fit back into my skinny-girl jeans so to do that I'm restarting an old habit: walking for an hour each morning. I set my alarm for 6:45, get up after one hit of the snooze button, dress in my workout clothes, drink a bottle of water and I'm out the door 10 minutes later. It's been three mornings so far. The first morning I walked 2.5 miles, yesterday I walked 2.4 miles and this morning I walked 3 miles! The pedometer I recently bought has been busy counting my steps. It's encouraging to see the number go up a little higher each time I take a peak.
Next post, I'll show a few photos of interesting items I spied on the first days of walking the neighborhood. Stay tuned!
