Just Life| I Went Walking..

It is Sunday morning and we are going for a walk. My daughter is taking her iPod with her. The iPod apparently has a pedometer. So my daughter keeps giving me updates of how many steps we are taking. 

One, two, 100, 250..... 1,000

At one point, she turns to me and says " it says that we burned 16 calories. Is that a lot mom." I told her that unfortunately it is very little.

So we walked for an hour or so, the pedometer recorded 6900 steps. 
I think by the end of our walk, we burned a little over 200 calories. 

A Hershey's milk chocolate bar has 210 calories.

Darn it. 

I don't even want to know how many calories were in that delicious doughnut that I ate before going to that walk . Lets' just not think about it. 


I love walking. It clears my mind and walking with my daughter gives me some needed one on one time with her.

So, if you are feeling blue, just put on some comfy shoes and go for a walk. 

Here are a few books on  this topic:
