I took my first walk outside today

Until a few days ago I wasn't able to put shoes on due to swelling in my feet. Now, I'm able to wear shoes, and my wife and I walked about 1/3 mile this afternoon. I could have gone farther, but I didn't want to overstress my body.

Oh yeah, I walked about 1/8 mile on Sunday, but that doesn't count since I was just doing an errand :) Actually, it does count, so today was my second walk outside.

That's right, every little step counts! On days when I have not been able to get my 30+ minutes of exercise in the morning, I try consciously to walk more during the day, ie park the car farther away, etc!

PS: Just found this podcast that I thought you might like to get back into the groove of things: http://www.ullreys.com/robert/Podcasts/index.html
Haven't tried it myself yet, but will start using it next week.
