My oldest Andrea had messaged that somehow they had overslept and missed their plane, I went for the walk while they frantically worked with the airlines to get a later flight... when I arrived home she had found that she would be able to get to Halifax by midnight... This didn't happen as something happened that they had to sleep at LaGuardia airport for the night... not sure what happened there. All I know is that it has to be difficult with a toddler and I hope she makes it home soon.
I did end up walking 5 miles for the day after I took Valentina out for a walk in the early evening... we would have went for a much longer walk but the skies were threatening to open up and pour down on us, so I didn't want to take any chances. What I really need is to buy something I can put my phone in to protect it from the rain, I need to carry it for when I am mapping my walk. I will have to look for a product like this; as well I want something that I can strap the phone to me instead of holding it in my hands. I don't have pockets in this heat... once cool air hits, I will be wearing a hoody that has pockets.
Saturday it will be two weeks that I started walking and actually walked everyday, after I write this I am going for a walk... I need to be consistent for the first month and once I have this set as something I do everyday, if I miss a day due to terrible weather, I will still go back the next day. I want this to become a regular habit, one I don't even think about, one that just happens like it always should.
Some people are telling me it's not good to exercise everyday... maybe if I was strength training or running but this is walking... Our great grand parents walked everywhere they went and I doubt they took a day off to rest, even on Sunday's as they went to church. I know that when I start running that I won't do that every single day but I think walking is okay.
I wanted to end this post with this quote I read this morning:
"Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try."
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
