one foot in front

this is all it takes to start walking…whether its in heels or flip flops or sneakers or boots….

you dont have to walk a mile or two or three
you just have to do what you can with where you are physical wise

if you can only walk in place for 5 minutes, then you are a hero
if you can only walk to the end of your drive way, you are a hero
if you can only walk a block and not run a marathon, you are a hero

IF you can only do….what you can..YOU are doing

there is no shame in this
there is no shame in that
that is a wonderful thing

take it from one who could NOT wipe her butt
or put her socks on or who couldnt stand for more
than 2 minutes without my legs buckling

i got home yesterday
boy was it ever a long day…today seems to be heading to be the same..
even though i didnt want too..i put on my sneakers and i put one foot in front of the other
(along with kabo the doberman and hub) and off we went..my left knee
hurt (the rain makes it a bitch sometimes) and i did it…i went the
other way (so i went down an incline) and back up a larger one to get home..
let me tell you my thighs are feeling it..

all i did was put one foot of the other

    I love this. You are an inspiration!

  2. Absolutely! Putting one foot in front of the other. Great mentality I often use to push myself.
    Just keep moving. Each action, each step, each movement we make gets us that much closer.
