Walking The MomI've been trying to get more regular at walking, but have been feeling like I need someone to physically pick me up and shove me out the door to accomplish this. (I'm so mature like that.) I realized after some thought that I have 7 kids able AND willing to nag me. Assign each of them one day a week to take mom for a walk, and hey, we have ourselves a walking program. And a chance to talk to each one individually, which is a precious thing in a busy house like ours.
First walk was last night. Got a mile in at a slow amble, it being 89 degrees and all. But, hey, my 8 year old and I we were moving. And chatting. And having fun. Tonight is the almost 12-year-old's turn. I think we'll walk a little later in the evening in hopes it will be a bit cooler. This has the feel of something that just might work.
