I love it, I love it!
Green Leaves, Green
Okay. I got up and walked. Did NOT know I would do that.
Here's the thing....
While in Point Clear I went to the outlet malls with Charlie. No, that's not an error. I went with Charlie. When on the coast, the outlet mall is the last place I want to be. I don't necessarily like to go if it's raining - unless there is a condo full of people and we all are crowding each other out. On a rainy day, give me a book, a crossword puzzle, a movie, laptop....
Charlie isn't a mall person either. Neither one of us are good shoppers - but if we really really really are looking rough in the clothing department - well - either one of us will find our way to a clothing store. Charlie needed khakis. Suits and khakis are his work uniform. Khakis for casual days.
Back to the mall and walking this morning.
I do like the clothing brand, Jones of New York. And there is one of those in that mall in Foley. so - ugh. The dressing room mirror. Sad, sad, sad.
I'm just curious if committed walking and committed healthy eating can somehow make these almost 60 year old legs not quite as lumpy. I will have to pray that God will keep me motivated if it's something He is about me doing. As I walked I knew that one day doesn't change a thing - yet, it's a start and it's one day at a time.
When I went to bed last night I didn't really think I would get up and walk. It didn't even cross my mind - although I had thoughts on the drive home about how I wish I would do that. But I know me and I know I always talk myself out of it. I was so very tired last night when I went to bed.
I woke early - in the dark - who does this? Brain has to remember what day it is, where I am? What's going on? What daughters are okay and where are they? I do family roll call in my brain - Then I ask myself if I want to get up or stay in bed. I was thinking get up and work on my Isaiah bible study - and then, honestly, the walk idea came into my brain and I actually wanted to do it!! I really think it was God getting me there! Yay! I hope we keep it up!
I also need to do it from here on out - don't I? for the heart. The heart. My heart and brain. Need to keep those healthy - for my children and grandchildren. Healthy old age works so much better for everyone than unhealthy old age. It's not just about the person - it's about family..... and friends, too. But it's really whatever God wants, isn't it? Always checking that out. Which direction are we going in, Lord?
So - for today - we'll strive for good health - within reach and reason - until it all takes a different turn.
