Climb Day 7 Walking

It would be nice if walking on the beach would give me exercise, but the truth is that I just wander around in circles and never get any exercise at all. There is a walking track across the street from my house so I really have no excuse for not walking. I must pull myself out of this ridiculous funk and get my body and my mind in shape.

Unfortunately, I never liked exercise and now I have no one to walk with. Oh well, I will have to walk alone. I can't keep up with anyone who might show me some kindness. I am getting out my tennis shoes today!


  1. Hi Sandra,

    I attended a ladies retreat with my church last Saturday and we had a prayer walk. The ladies were given different topics to pray about and also some bible verses to pray as they walked. Maybe you could try that? Or, I have a little ipod shuffle that I have loaded with good praise and worship songs that I listen to as I walk around the neighborhood.

  2. Thank you, Cathy! What an excellent idea! I am definitely going to try it. I have a track just across from my house and I am going to walk in the afternoons!

  3. You can do it! Sometimes I post on FB what I don't want to do, "Giant pile of laundry won't move". Then I wan to come back and post that it is gone so that 300 people don't think I am lazy.
    Another trick is that I can't do something I want until do at least 10 minutes on "blank", once you get started you tend to go farther than you thought you would. maybe you have to go one time around before lunch or a favorite tv show. I believe in you!

  4. Janice,
    Thank you so much. I just wrote my story on hubpages to make myself more accountable. I am really determined to make a go of it this time. I am going to walk every day in the afternoon. The track is across the street after all!

  5. Hi Sandra.. Not sure if you remember me but I used to be married to Craig (Jim's son).. anyway.. I think what u are doing is awesome! Honestly I prefer to walk alone I guess because I don't have much alone time... So walking alone to me is my way of soul searching, if you will.. Try it.. I think you will enjoy it more than you think! Good Luck on your journey.. I fight my weight daily too! My sisters and I have a "bet" going now to see who can meet their goal by May.. Its a good insentive! God Bless!
