Come With Me On My Walk Today

I have new walking shoes and I love them.  My other shoes were too heavy in feet that feel like bricks.  Walking in them was like clomping in snow shoes through wet muddy snow.

My new shoes are so light weight and have such bounce to them I feel like Tigger!

They are "Skechers Tone Ups."  Here's the link.

I have discovered that a 30 minute walk is not long enough to achieve maximum stress relief, muscle warm-up and purging of a blond brain.  All of the good stuff starts to happen at 31 minutes and continues the last half of the hour.

In the beginning of my walk I am distracted, very aware that I am walking, my brain is cluttered and my body is tight.  As the walk progresses, at least 20-30 minutes in, good starts to happen.

My body relaxes.  My brain empties.  My breathing is deeper, and I feel a sense of calm.  I release what I carry.

I walked through my neighborhood, down the hill, and to the marina just below my house.  I had arranged with Batman to pick me up so I wouldn't have to trek up the hill as if I was going for the summit at Everest.

Come with me.

First you will need some breakfast.

One hour every day.  I will give this to myself.

What do you need to do for you?

Hi Jill, I cannot recommend these shoes enough!! Bouncy bouncy bounce! Like Tigger with a hurt right foot!

Thank u Donna, for all the encouragement, support and cards and letters!

Nani, I am amazed at all the wonder and magic, all these years, right under my nose. I am living in 3D technicolor Dolby sound now. How beautiful where we live. I hear God speaking to me in nature, so loudly, saying "I love you, I love you, look at all the majesty I have created, let it remind you, I am near." Wow.
