Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “drive.”Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
“I prefer to drive instead of walking!”
This was how I thought for many years of my life. Walking was never one of my favorite activity. I would walk if I had to, but not by choice.
It all changed, when I had my first knee replaced. My doctor told me that for the surgery to be truly successful and beneficial, I had to walk at least a mile, twice daily.
I started walking, albeit reluctantly because I didn’t want another surgery. After 3 and a half years, I got my second knee replaced. By that time I had developed a healthy walking routine.
I’d walk 30 minutes early in the morning, and 30 minutes in the evening.
But my love for walking strengthened when I bought my first Fitbit. Fitbit is an exercise tracker and it records steps and other forms of exercise. It was the first time I wanted to walk, instead of driving. It gave me the incentive to walk 10 k steps daily and then some more.
