I did it! I started exercising today. I actually walked to my son's school today to pick him up instead of driving. It was about a 40 minute walk round trip. It was hot! Of course, it didn't help that I was wearing denim shorts. I don't currently own a lot, well actually any, exercise appropriate clothing. I'm going to have to change that.
Although, it was a great opportunity to exercise and spend time with my kid, I probably won't do it again. He didn't just come right out and say it, but I think he felt it wasn't so cool to be walking home with his mom. At least I got started and I feel better about myself just knowing I made a positive step.
One little problem, I have a blister on the bottom of both feet. I don't really know why; I wore my walking shoes and I have never gotten blisters on the bottom of my feet before. I'm gonna have to invest in some blister block band-aids. My husband's aunt told me they saved her feet at Disney this summer.
Overall, I am very proud of myself. I have made a step in the right direction and I feel momentum bubbling up. I know I can do this.
