Today I start a new way of life. I’ve been sedentary too long. Last night my YOUNG friend, the 50 + year old told me how she has, since Christmas, forced herself to go walking every morning for at least 20 minutes. The weather didn’t matter. Rain, snow , sleet or shine, she walked. And I have to admit that I look like a blimp alongside her.
I have been swaddling myself for a couple of months now and the drag from my derriere competing with that from my belly anchor me to a standstill. I feel like a barge fully loaded that has run aground. So, here I am , dressed , running shoes and all, ready to battle the elements. I know I am sounding negative to compare this to a battle. I must train my mind to look forward to this hellish venture. Oh dear! Here I go again. Aww, that will change. A few times out and I will feel so good that looking back on my feelings this morning will just bring a smile to my face.
I am off!
Look out world. Here I come!
See that flash!
