One Foot In Front of the Other

I did it!  I finally did it!  I know that for some of you what I'm about to announce that I accomplished this morning isn't on a grand scheme, but it is for me....

I finally took a walk this morning!!!  It was glorious!!!  I got up, took Emalee to preschool, smelled the fresh air (we're having unseasonably warm weather in the Ozarks) and decided that today would be the day.  The day to get out of my horrible, awful morning routine and get outside and walk.

You see, it's really not my goal in life to sit and do nothing.  Okay, that might be a bit exaggerated,  I do things, but I certainly don't do everything that I used to do.  A few years ago I was walking every day.  However, I have this ugly disease that sucks bits and pieces of my every day pleasures away from me.  The ability to walk and exercise has been one of those things that it's taken.

This morning I made a decision to take that part of me back!  So, I put on my comfy clothes, laced up my tennis shoes, went outside and put one foot in front of the other.  It wasn't a very long walk...I didn't come close to a 5K, but it sure was nice to smell the fresh air and do some talking with my Savior.

One of my goals for this year is to get more exercise in.  This morning was a great day to start that goal!

What are some goals you have this year?  How are you doing at accomplishing those so far?  Leave a comment below and share your thoughts!
