I did it! I got back out there today and walked over 5 miles. It felt good. It felt really good.
I have even more motivation to burn up the sidewalk because I have gotten so many compliments this week about how much thinner my face is now. The extra walking is working and yielding the results that I wanted.
However, I can't keep my eyes open. I'm going to sleep now. Walking 5+ miles per day has another benefit besides weight loss and fitness - better, longer sleep.
