Another 4 miles!

I wandered around the mall today, although I didn't walk fast by means. Tonight, neighbor girl and I walked another four miles! It is an amazing feeling. I am exhausted. I will shower, and sleep deep tonight. Hopefully I don't have any dreams of moving things out of the garage, and if I do, I hope my bladder intervenes.

My mom has lost 10 lbs. GO MOM! She and I were chatting last night. She told me that she thinks the reason she has lost weight is because she doesn't eat as much. She argued that even though she has been exercising regularly, she actually saves more calories by eating less, than she would expend by eating the same amount and exercising more. To me, it sounds a lot like math! I encourage her to continue to eat less, but to exercise for how awesome it makes her feel. You know that veins rely on the muscles moving to get the blood back to the heart, that's why we feel so good when we move.

I'm pretty sure I'm not making that up, but if I am, I said it with authority, so it must be true.


  1. Tell your mom I'm super proud of her for that and many other things. She is making good choices for herself. She should celebrate and buy herself a new toothbrush!

  2. You're right, Mandy. Exercise for how awesome it makes you feel...we were meant to move.
