Hubby took the car yesterday, even though I said I had a lot of running around town to do. I decided to suck it up and get it done anyway. So, my oldest and I loaded the little two into the wagon and set off.
1.6 miles to the post office
1.0 miles to the school office
0.5 miles to the library
0.5 miles until we figured out the traffic was too heavy to cross a major highway and begged my mom to come give us a lift home
3.6 miles total
I'm burned, my back is sore (from pulling a wagon with 75 pounds worth of toddlers) and my feet hurt, but we did it!
The walk did me such good. All that extra water was flushed out, and the scale showed a small dip today. I think we may start taking [earlier] walks into town when we have errands to run. I may even disown the car when I need to go grocery shopping (the store is roughly a mile away), and just go more often to reduce the number of bags to be brought home.
AND MY CHILDREN SLEPT LIKE ANGELS!!!
