Oh the joy of brand new tennis shoes!!

Crazy title huh?? Nah....I am 43 years old and have never exercised a day in my life!! I never had to...until now...Don't get me wrong, I have never been nor will I ever be a super model, thin, really in shape, girl. I've just been a regular girl who was happy with the way I But in the last 5 or 6 years my body has turned into this weak, out of shape, tired, flabby, old woman!!
Of course, I have used every excuse in the book...I am stressed out, I can't run or walk too far because my ankle is bad, I don't have anything to wear..yada, yada, yada!!

So...yesterday, I told myself that if I had new tennis shoes, I could start walking everyday and maybe, just maybe, THAT could turn into a little jogging and THAT could turn into a little running! Yeah, sounds crazy to me too, but I am seriously going to try my hardest to get my body back in shape so that I can WOW my husband and maybe just be able to feel good about myself again! 

I am writing this in my blog so that when I publish it and post it for all the world to see....I am being held accountable for my actions. Read this and call me on it...I need someone to nag me into doing it. I will not lie to you and tell you that I am doing this....I will not lie to myself....I am, for the first time in my life, going to put on these brand new tennis shoes and I am going to walk the rubber off of them!

  2. Thank you! You have to help me too!

  3. I am always here to help you. I did walk some. Yesterday in the Atlanta airport. I love that airport for the walking. You can walk to the terminals and it is an easy walk. It is 1,000 ft between each terminal. I walked 7,000 ft. I have not converted it to miles yet,but I think it is about a mile. I also walked to the mailbox and back this morning. So, we must be helping each other.

    Love you
