I hope my feet hold up and everything attached to them!!!

Fixing the last little kettle of green beans from our patch.
We didnt put out a garden, just thought we would experiement with some green beans and see how it went.
We got three decent size messes of beans.
I am going to look into a few tomato and pepper plants next.

My feet are hurting. Not HURRRRTING, but aching. Today when I got to the track, I took those first few steps and thought there is no way I am going to finish this walk.
I told myself I would be lucky to do a mile.
But once I got going, I did good, finished an hour and just short of 3 miles.
Once I get moving, I am fine, but let me sit in my car for 30 minutes or so and when I go to get out, I am stiff and my feet ache to walk.
I know I do need new shoes, at least new orthotics, I am going to change mine out tonight for some good gel inserts and see how it feels.
If I get to walk tomorrow that is, it is pouring rain here right now and hearing more is on the way.
But if I can, if there is just a light rain, I will walk.
I want to keep my streak going, and I want to see some movement on that scale!!!
It has been way too long, I have made too many excuses, eaten too much and too often.
I have done a fair job of maintaining my weight, if that was my goal, but I am still seeking weight loss.
So, I have to buckle down and get tough, tougher!!
Now if my feet will cooperate, I will be on my way.

    My feet are the same way...after sitting for a period of time....hard to walk and feel like I am going to die...then once going...I am okay. I have changed shoes...where the bottoms are thick with ridges...and inserts...and both seem to help. Yay you for what you are doing
