Sometimes we have just do things on our on. Wish you lived close by. I have had to push my self a little at a time. First it was just getting the mailbox for me. Then it was to the house next door.

You can and will make a choice that will be of great value for you.

I have my husband but he offers no motivation to walk. I am completely reliant on a walker, I can't walk without it any more. I have so many issues with my back and I seriously need exercise but I know it's going to hurt. I know I need to do it any way but the thought of more pain keeps me from it.

I walk with a friend on the weekends. During the week I listen to audiobooks on my walk. I walk 5.5 miles per day.

Gentle Lady,

You need to get out of them there hills and move to the oceanfront ! Just hop in your car and head east on US 58 and don't stop till you drive into Dairy Queen's lot and you're at oceanfront,easy peasy.

Yes! I posted a question on our local "Next Door" page - "Is anyone near "my road" interested in walking in the AM?"  I received 4 replies but once you start talking about schedules, one person committed. We now walk 2 to 3 mornings a week. Prior to that, my motivation was low to get out and walk alone so i'm very happy i found my walking buddy! We talk and see other neighbors. Time flies and distance adds up quickly when you aren't paying attention. We also vary our route to check out other neighborhoods to keep it interesting.
