January was kind of a wash for me in regards to walking. When my grandpa passed in early January, that sorta took the wind out if my sails and I just stopped walking everyday. I was also experiencing high levels of anxiety and that only made things worse. I was averaging about 80 miles a month and I just bombed in January. I’ve cut myself some slack and I’m not beating myself up over it. Beating myself up over it serves no purpose. What I am going to do is correct this going forward.
That being said, I made myself go walking this afternoon and it went pretty well. It was cold but not too bad. I’m glad I went and was able to grab about 3.1 miles..
It felt good to be back at it and I intend to continue moving in the right direction. I want to continue to improve my body and overall health. I haven’t set a weight loss goal for the year but I think 30 lbs is a solid target.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting back out tomorrow and get another 3.1 miles under my belt. ☺
