walkity update…

Some 17 days ago, I started my 10,000 step challenge. And then I learned just how far that is…

But I didn’t quit! No siree!

I can proudly say that with the exception of two days – one due to bad shoes and one due to ice pellets – I have walked an average of 11,000 steps each and every day.

And honestly, it’s one of the best decisions I have made in a long time.

In my two weeks of walking, I have:

  • fallen back in love with my city
  • had some of the best cups of coffee at cafes I never knew existed
  • lost some winter insulation on my belly (note: this was not intended but better-fitting jeans are a nice perk)
  • had some lovely walking dates to get green juices
  • noticed how many people are glued to their phones – it’s a miracle there aren’t more accidents!
  • developed some gnarly blisters – lesson: wear proper shoes
  • realized the magic that is spring
  • learned how to ditch work crap before getting home
  • found two trucks and an octopus
  • visited the zoo
  • fallen madly in love with life

Walking is my exercise. It is my stress-relief and elixir. I cannot recommend it enough. 

And after Monday’s incredible tragedy, I have taken each and every step with immense gratitude.
