Get Up!

Inspired tonight by my walk home. The sun was out all day and it has significantly improved my mood πŸ˜€ I realized on way to work this morning that my iPhone hadn’t been restored after downloading the latest iOS 5 update last night. The only song on my iPhone was the Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feelin'”. So walking home tonight, in the good mood I’m in (I’ve lost 70 pounds, I’m going to Shanghai for the day tomorrow and the sun is out) I played it and basically sang and bounced my way home. The locals think I’m a whack… πŸ˜€
Two lines that inspired tonight’s Words For Thought…
“Jump off that sofa
Let’s get get OFF”
“Look at her dancing
Just take it off”

So, what did I take off? 70 pounds! How have I done it? Staying true to the Dukan Diet and WALKING… EVERY.SINGLE.DAY! Sometimes just 30 minutes, sometimes a couple hours. NO EXCUSES… It’s just walking. WALKING… Doesn’t cost anything, don’t need a gym membership, don’t need special shoes. I’ve walked my ass off, literally… Tomorrow I’ll show my before and after ass, you’ll see what walking can do for YOU! Now get off the computer and take a walk πŸ™‚

  1. I’m working on it. Now making it to mail box twice a day. And you know that is about 300 steps round trip each time Will increase a little each day till I’m once again back to 1 1/2 miles. After that who knows what I can do Wish me luck.

  2. I will start walking tomorrow… and I’m walking around the office as much as I can. I used a stepometer once and didn’t even clock up half of what you are supposed to do in a day. Sitting at your desk all day is sooo bad.

    • Awesome! Tomorrow is a great day to start πŸ™‚ Sitting at your desk all day does suck… I have a desk job, too. Unlike everywhere else in the world, however, here in China they take a 90 minute lunch and everyone goes to nap… I take that time to go for a walk!
