Lifestyle Changes... not Yet a Molehill

Wearing a pedometer and tracking my steps on walker tracker is changing my life. It used to be that if I needed an item from the local grocery, I would send a child to go buy it. Or, if that didn’t work out, I was likely to “do” without it. But not today. Today I am much more willing to schedule into my day errands outside the house, or to suddenly decide to “go and get it myself”. What seemed to be a terrible schlep ( the “mountain”) may not yet be a molehill, but my attitude that “I can do it, Why not?” is coming more and more to the fore. I am even GLAD for a chance to “stretch my legs”, and this morning when I was out walking, I even RAN to cross the street before the stoplight turned to red. PROGRESS!
