One Year Ago..........

Do you know what you were doing one year ago today?

For once, I can tell you what I was doing. I was sitting in the hospital trying to comprehend what had just happened to me and what was happening to me and how close I came to death and the fact that I didn't like any of it very well. All while not feeling like death warmed over.

Help Me Find A Great Walking Shoe

Weather here is Ohio is beautiful today so my Sister-in-law, one of my good friends and I headed out for a walk and we ended up walking 7.5 miles and I am feeling great and so energized. It is amazing to me how much easier it was for me to walk today compared to last summer/fall. That gives me lots of confidence that what I am doing is a great thing and that I need to keep it up because not only am I shedding pounds but my breathing is much easier also.

I know that one thing that I must do is get out there and get myself a good pair of walking shoes because the insoles of my poor shoes are worn out and my feet are a bit sore and the bottoms of them felt like they were on fire when we were walking. Not a good thing! Here is what my current everyday/every occasion shoes look like and yes, they are in serious need of a washing.
