Getting started...

I went for a walk today.

Yeah, that's not really big news, but it was big for me! I am the biggest homebody in the world...I never want to leave the house. I have too much to read, write, watch, and sleep. So this morning, I promised myself I would take a walk. I'm trying to get healthy again. My metabolism is really slow because of my thyroid problems, and I'm tired as well, so the odds are against me and I have to try that much harder. I watched conference, worked on a few projects, and then I was going to take a walk. But I looked at the time, and I was going to go to a party that started at 5. Maybe I should be on time? No, take your walk. I get in my gear and open the door...it's raining! Maybe I should stay? No...take your walk! I go to get my ipod out of the car and it's almost dead because I accidentally left it on...I can't walk without tunes! No...TAKE YOUR WALK! So I did. And my ipod didn't die. And it was beautiful...sunny & rainy at the same time, but a very light rain, like a mist. And there were rainbows and fresh air and so much to see and enjoy. I walked on a beautiful trail, uphill, and got a good workout in. Then I got home and had a glass of water, and I could feel my muscles doing something, you know that 'ping' 'ping' feeling you get after working them out. I like to think of it as bits of cellulite exploding off of my legs! :)

So, I took a walk, I feel good, and I hope this is the start of a beautiful thing.

I went for a walk. Then I almost tripped and died. Maybe I need a new place to walk.
