Day One....Walking To Work Challenge (WTW)

Hi Friends!!

Just a quick post about my day.  Today was day one walking to work.  Like I said, this is kind big for me.  I should be walking to work every day, but yet....I don't.  It is only 1/4 mile away from my house, so it doesn't even take me that long.  Sigh.....What's wrong with me :)

My first picture is Mia and I leaving for work. 
 I just stepped out the front door, getting  ready for that "long walk".
She's more excited that I am :)  

This next picture is from on our way home.  
It started sprinkling, so I cut through woods to get home.  
We passed my parents house
 and said Hello to my "sisters"  Molly and Maggie.

Oops....I didn't mean for both of my pictures to be of dogs....It just turned out that way :) 

I guess it wasn't to terrible walking.  Mia tends to trip me up a bit, and I have this weird fear of falling, so I took my time. :)  It did feel good to get out.  Maybe I will begin to like it??

  1. Great job! And its awesome that you live so close to work! I think it's a great idea to get that extra exercise in any way that you can!

  2. I have a weird fear of falling too... Especially when it's raining or there's snow on the ground! I walk reaaalllly slow. Good job!
