Walking on Wednesday: You Go, Girl!

(If you’re here for my regular “Writing on Wednesday” post, please come back next week!)

2322648Since I began counting calories on August 31, I’ve stepped up my workouts on the elliptical machine. As the weather gets cooler, I’m looking forward to walking in my beautiful neighborhood and especially down by the river. Only problem with all of this is that my foot (the one I broke—the one that still has screws in it) hurts with very much impact, and even with no impact on the elliptical if I go for 40 minutes. And every pair of (closed-toe) shoes I’ve ever tried on hurts my foot. Until now.

They’re not much to look at (although I do like the lime green accents) but they are unbelievably comfortable. It’s like walking on a memory foam mattress on top of a yoga mat. And they’re made to wear without socks. (I haven’t worn socks in years. Hate them.) I can’t wait to try them out on the elliptical this afternoon.

Oh, and if you’re keeping up with my progress, I’ve lost 4 ½ pounds in 9 days. Now that really puts a spring in my step! The first week I was on 1200 calories/day. This week I decided to try 1000/day. See you on Friday.
