The thermometer in my back yard says 74 degrees right now, the sun is out and it could not be a more beautiful day. The children and me have been playing all day and we just got back from a 1.7 mile walk around the neighborhood, one thing that I learned today? Man do I need a new pair of sneakers, the shell toed Adidas jut aren't cutting it right now. if not for the sneaker issue I believe I could do 2 miles per day right now no problem. I am working myself up to 3 miles per day walking and the nice weather is making it easier to go do it, though I almost didn't go today until I read a blog or two and decided it was dumb not to go and there really was no reason. I feel good after a nice walk, and listening to my daughter point out every minute detail within things that I would never have noticed. from sticks to cats hiding in bushes right on up to every single airplane and bird that passes by, "look dad a baby!" as a mom with a stroller walks past us I have to admit I do enjoy the walks a lot more than I would have 4 months ago.
while looking around I found some shoes that peak my curiosity, a company called Vibram makes them and well, I will let the photo speak for its self, if you knew me personally you would understand why these make so much sense for me. lets just say that I can pick up a tennis ball with my toes, also I can pick dimes up off of the floor with my bare feet. I rarely have something on my feet if I am in doors or in the yard, me and bare feet are like coffee and donuts. I am seriously considering getting myself a pair of these Vibram FiveFingers Sprints to wear.
My intake for the day only came in at 1280 calories, I have been picking up fresh sweet potatoes and seasoning them and making french fries out of them a lot lately, I am hooked! calories are not high, they are filling and sweet potato just happen to be one of my favorite foods so its a win win. I do know that I have been slacking on water/tea the past few days and this may be why my weight is not moving this week, I have corrected it for today and have already drank more than a gallon of water and its about 2:00 pm right now, so I am on track for today. I look forward to the park this weekend, if we do in fact end up going I will bring the digital camera and post up a few pics as it really is a nice park. that shall end this episode of my little story, everyone that is following along, again I thank you, and keep on keepin yourselves and it has to happen for you.
