Let’s Try Walking

2nd Daughter and I decided to try walking in the mornings. Not that we don’t already know how to walk. It’s just that walking very far on a consistent basis is, basically, a foreign concept in our lives.

We thought this would be a good time to start because, for one thing, any time to start getting some exercise is a good time. And the weather has been rather nice the last few days – not too hot, not too cold. Until this morning.

Yesterday, it was in the low 60’s early in the morning. This morning, it was about 45 degrees. Ya gotta love Oklahoma weather! So we bundled up a little more and set out.

We walked for about 30 minutes–nothing too vigorous. Just letting our bodies and our legs get used to the idea of moving. It was a little chilly at first, but very soon we felt comfortable with the temperature. All except the face.

As we walked, I could feel my nose and cheeks and jaw tingling with the chill. Hey! If I keep doing this, maybe the cold will freeze and shrink that extra saggy skin that has developed around my jaw and neck. Is that possible? One can dream. . .

Now to get on with the rest of the day. I feel pretty good! Maybe this walking thing isn’t so bad after all.

Where’s my coffee?
