Plain and simple

I'm very proud of myself this week. I've walked three days in a row so far. Being a person who constantly surrounds herself with all things weight loss ie. blogs, magazines, podcasts, etc I think I tend to get overwhelmed.

I'm constantly thinking I should be doing this or that and when I can't I lose focus and get discouraged. My new way of thinking is this-I'm going to walk, every day. Plain and simple, I'm going to walk every day.

A neighbour who used to live by me lost 100 pds in a year by following ww and going for an hour walk every evening. Maybe after a while I will incorporate more or need to jazz it up but for right now I want to actually plan for something I can and actually will do.

Yesterday I walked on my 15 min break at work, I walked home, takes me 15 mins and then in the afternoon I walked for 1 1/2 hr. It looked like it was going to rain and I was excited because I love the rain but right when I started my walk it got sunny and hot-boo-but I didn't turn back I just kept going :)


  1. Sounds like a good plan. Walking is great. I get overwhelmed with what I should/shouldn't be doing either. Information overload! Just step back and keep it simple :-)

  2. Awesome job to just keep going! The more you do it, the better you'll feel, and the easier it will get! Way to go! :D

  3. I'm encouraged by your neighbor's success. Sometimes if I can't get to the gym, I talk myself out of a walk around the neighborhood because it doesn't seem "enough." In truth, it would be far better than nothing.

  4. You've got the right idea, keep it simple and you will do it.


  5. Great idea Candace-sometimes simpler makes all the difference.
