I’ve never been one to walk without destination. Sure, I park in the further most parking spot when I go shopping, but treadmills and walking trails have never really been my thing.
Today my daughter and I went walking. It was our second walk this week. It’s funny how Tuesday we focused on just getting it over with, but today we had fun. I tried to get her to walk like an Egyptian, but she just said I was crazy and sped away.
I had to get the actual walking feet because we are walking newbies. Not to be confused with the walking dead. They are zombies. They eat brains and probably also take better pictures than me.
There were a lot of robins hanging out. They must have been vampire robins because none of them showed up in my phone gallery…
These are my old Vibrams. I got them when I lost 50 pounds. They were on sale for $49.00 and it made perfect sense. The first couple weeks they were quite awkward, but I never gave up on them. I would like to thank them for the loss of my “cankles”. I have a new pair that I got at the 75 pound mark. I don’t like to get them dirty 🙂
I had to break out my ninja skills to get some good shots. You know just walk normal and click, click. Then there’s always the “No, I’m not taking your picture, I’m checking my facebook”…
We laughed the whole time. People were probably staring when “flash mom” broke out. (That’s what she calls me when I break out in spontaneous , uncoordinated dance with or without walking)
I got a pedometer a couple weeks ago and have been counting my steps for a friend for Ankylosing spondylitis. I can’t thank her enough for inviting us to walk to help, because I think the whole pedometer thing has really been more helpful to us.
We looked at the pictures when we got in the car to leave. We laughed some more and went home to fix left overs for dinner. It turned out super yummy, so maybe I’ll tell you about it sometime 🙂
I leave you with a way back picture from the winter of 1969…
