Maybe it because I havent been able to move much until this week. Maybe it is because it is such a great stress reliever and I am under a lot of stress. Maybe it is all or none of the above. Not sure. But walking is so fantastic and so therapeutic and I am loving it. I walked 2.3 miles today and could have done it again except the last 3/4 of a mile was with Erica and she wasnt going to go around with me again. But that was ok. I felt amazing from the walk I did have and I am ready to do it again tomorrow. I have actually made a walking date with my dad for tomorrow morning. (some of you may not be familiar with our situation, but we are currently living with my parents) I figure Avery is an early bird and is up at 6:45 every day. I get frustrated trying to get him back to sleep so I can rest longer and he gets frustrated cause he is done resting and wants me up. So being that he is only 4 months I figure there is no explaining the tired mommy thing to him. Therefore I must give in to him and just get up. My dad used to walk the dog each morning and now that the dog is gone he never walks. So this will be good for him and Avery will love it when we get up and go rather than have the sleep war lol. I figure we can go on the 1.5 mile walk in the morning and then I will do it again in the afternoon making 3 miles. My morning walk will not include the ipod which is a bummer cause I love the music but its cool. I will survive that part. Anyway, that is my daily update.

    I love to walk too for exactly the same reason. It helps me unwind.

    You sound like you have made a complete turn around. Good for you. Now you are out doing something for yourself. Isn't walking great. I love it too. Have you tried walking dvd's on days you can't get out. They are great. Good luck with the walking plans. emoticon
