    Hey guys,

    Well, I'm CD SS (sorta SS+ing) at the moment, and really felt today like I needed to get out in the fresh air. I am one of the most unenergetic people I know, but I found myself dying to take a walk!

    So, I grabbed my H2B who was most surprised as this is very unlike me, and off we went (he was a little reluctant at first but I managed to encourage him with my enthusiasm!). We stopped at the supermarket on the way and I didnt feel one urge to buy or eat food - it was liberating! We then went into the countryside and had a lovely walk for 45mins as the sun set.... beautiful!

    He even ran down the muddy path giving me a piggy back so I didn't get dirty and wet - now that I am slimmer he finds it easy, and it was great fun! I felt like a little kid but it was so lovely to do something together where it was just us and the countryside, no distractions.

    I had felt lethargic and tired before; now I feel full of energy and the cobwebs have most definitely been cleared... hence the title of this thread - "what a difference a walk makes". So next time we are blessed with a beautiful day on the weekend, we have agreed we should definitely go again - and if possible make it a weekly thing.

    Why don't you try it? If you don't have a partner, take the dog, or a friend, or even go by yourself!

    Not sure where you are but weather heres been great too - beautiful clear skies and I am the type to just sofa surf. However, I have had the compelling urge to be out in the country and get some air - feels great, dunnit ? :)

    As a single parent to a large German Shepherd, I have to go for a walk 2-3 times daily no matter what the weather or how I am feeling that day.

    I miss the 'going for a walk because it would make me feel good' option!
