Gettin’ my walk on!
What a beautiful, crisp fall day it is! I just came in from getting my walk on. Those of you who’ve been following me and my blog from the beginning know that walking is how this journey of self-discovery/weight loss began in 2009. Whenever I’m feeling sluggish or need to rejuvenate — I return to that place, that starting point. I’m a true believer in looking within for self-motivation. Chatting with loved ones, reading self-help books, and coming up with a game plan from trainers, are helpful tools and they all can play a role. At the end of the day, however, there’s just me. So I lace up my tennis shoes, and put one foot in front of the other and try to figure it all out. How to maneuver from one point to another in this obstacle course called life.
For me walking is not so much about the physical exercise, but more about my mental health. Walking for me is cathartic. Taking in all the beautiful sights of nature, the fresh air, and just spending time with myself, thinking. Really thinking. Reflecting is what my walks are about. Walking does the mind and body good. So whenever I need a reboot, I get my walk on!
