I DID IT !!!

I WALKED

ONE MILE
YESTERDAY

ONE WHOLE MILE ....

because I love ya'll, I will have to tell you that
I did sit down at each 1/4 mile marker
so these poor ole legs could rest a bit...

But, I didn't sit too long and, besides, does it matter that I have to rest
the legs a little ? I think not !!

of course, I aim to walk the mile...

cold turkey...

biting bullets...

praying out loud..

WITHOUT HAVING TO STOP AT ALL .....SOME FINE DAY!!
It has taken about a month to go from walking 2 blocks after the last
surgery on my legs to ONE MILE....
I AM PROUD BUT MOSTLY BLESSED.


OF COURSE, THAT IS NOT
ME
UP THERE ON TOP OF THAT MOUNTAIN.......

BUT.....

IT COULD BE !

much love, bj

Good Mornin' BJ,
"CONGRATULATION'S" on walking the Mile. Me and hubby have quit taking our afternoon walks because it has warmed back up and then late in the evenings, the skeeter's are bad. He is going back to work today. I posted this morning and gave an update on him. I am going to have to try my best to get back in the swing of things since he is going back to work. I have visited a few this morning, so I'm doing good. LOL. Continue the good work. Take care my friend and have a great day. May GOD Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Cyndy said...

WAY TO GO!!!!! That picture may not have been of you on top of the mountain, but you are on top of the world right now!!!!
But darn!, now you've guilted me into getting back on the treadmill! After all, if you can do it after your surgery, well, I just have no excuse.

ForeverMe said...

Hi BJ, Congratulations for taking that first step!! That's the hardest!! After that, it just gets easier!! My husband and I used to walk all the time and have fallen into that "excuse-making" thing: 'it's too hot right now'; 'there are too many mosquitos at night'; we have too much to do right now (we're in conference season!). You're an inspiration though and I hope we can get ourselves up to taking that first step soon!! Way to go! Keep at it!

Sweet BJ,

beddow said...

Congratulations! It all begins with that first step doesn't it? I procrastinated using my treadmill because I couldn't stay on it for long or high speeds but you know what once I started I found I was on it longer than in the beginning and yes even up from a basic slow speed.
I am not ready for a marathon but I haven't quit so for me that is the victory!
