Walking is Walking!

Monday, March 7, 2016

I didn’t walk yesterday.  Well I did, just not my usual “mall-walk.” Instead, I went to the city to celebrate my sons’ birthday.IMG_3341

I gave myself permission to be free of the “shackles” of routine — and guess what?  The world did not end. I’m convinced that the “failures” that I’ve had, in my diabetes management, are a direct result of trying to be too strict. Relax, Kathy. We’re only human.

NYC = walk your feet off; that’s the best part!  My daughter calls NYC her “personal gym.”   🙂   Hey, it works!  Walking the streets of the Big Apple is a fabulous way to get your steps in and drop those pounds.  It’s a beautiful city, the energy is palpable, and the streets go on forever.

Here’s the thing — Walking is walking, so you don’t HAVE to follow your routine, if it’s inconvenient, for some reason, walk wherever you are — IT ALL COUNTS!  We just have to keep moving, right?


Isn’t that what’s important?  We’re exercising (via walking) enjoying it, and adding to a healthy lifestyle.  Doesn’t get better than that, right?

Walking in the city, that slight change in routine, actually gave me a boost in terms of my commitment to keeping my feet moving.

  1. My family is big on walking. Lady H. used to walk approximately 4 miles (round trip) to the grocery store when they lived in Boston. Although not a fast walker, Lady H. can walk a city mile in about 28 minutes. One day, she will attempt to walk a mile in about 10 minutes, but I don’t see that happening any time soon…
