Sat morning shuffle

Well for the last two weeks I have been drinking more water (that’s right water.) I have been walking the dogs at least once a day for 2.5 miles and some days I even walk them twice….go me. I’m watching my calorie intake and my sleep patterns….I have no weight lose yet. But I am feeling better and that is the main goal of this life style change. I may not be the fastest walker but I am doing laps around the people sitting on the couch!
I’m glad I am a morning person. There isn’t much traffic on our street at 7am so walking at that time is perfect at least on the weekends. During the week it’s more like 630 or the dogs are sitting every 20 steps because a car is passing. The westie is my tank she walks hot, cold, wet, dry and just goes and goes. The two shelties are another story. The big one walks but tries to get us back home fast. The little one just wants to herd me where she wants to go. I try to assure her I will win this game but I find myself going really where ever she leads us. Guess she wins the game after all :0)
It helps too that when I walk in the mornings I am hungry when I get home so breakfast has become a staple at the house. I make the dogs there’s and then while I am eating so are they. They seem to like that.
So one step at a time is my new motto!
