I DID START ON MONDAY!!

That is walking... we always say I will start on Monday..well this time I did, but wasn't even thinking about it. My new step in the right direction...I so needed to do this for many different reasons. I will call this a new Season in my Life.


See in this picture from my cousins wedding this past Saturday is my new walking buddy...Look to the far left lower corner....not the one with the shiny bald head but next to him...yep that's her..this is my cousin Kelly...She needs to walk also for different reasons...lets face it who doesn't or shouldn't be out walking...Right now this is who the Lord has partnered me with....It is never a dull moment....I thank you so much for speaking up and doing this with me.


So we are ready and we started and I must say I did a lot better than I thought I would. But it's sticking with it... we have been walking 35 minutes right now. Today was a warm one for us and that means my hands swelled a lot...on days that will be getting warmer we will start earlier.. Now it works for me to start at 11 am.


I do know that tomorrow or this weekend I need to go to the new balance store and get fitted for some good walking shoes, right now I just have my sketchers...not much support.


Also today is my mother in laws 76th birthday. This pic is from last year..Does she not look great for her age and not one thing wrong with her...we wished her happy birthday and we will be getting together soon to celebrate with her at her favorite ice cream place called Taggart's
Well need to get to bed and get some rest. I will be watching the radar tomorrow before we go walk..so we may need to go earlier or later because we are suposed to have rain and the temps are going down..It was 81 today...
Love to all,
Jolyn

Walking is always better with a buddy! I use to walk with a good friend and it was one of the best things we ever did for ourselves...both physically and emotionally! Best Wishes to you and have fun buying new sneakers!!

Good for you!!! You and Kelly will have so much fun...and hold each other accountable....Oh, how I wish we could walk together! I'll be praying for the Lord to bless your efforts and to 'nudge' you if you need it....I'm so proud of you!
