Mike's International Walking Team



As you can see I have also discovered the bighugelabs from Miss Mike too.

I have joined the fabulous Pip's intentional walking team, starting Day 1 on building my walking addiction. I fear I am still at step 1-denial, but Poppy and I set out regardless.

The weather was meant to be 15 and sunny, a good start I thought. I don't know where they measure this rating but I think they are somewhere out of the wind under a granny blanket because there is no way it was either 15 or sunny. My partner in crime and I set off, you can even see my moving feet, off we went to the park (my favourite time of year in Melbourne, love those flowers) said a quick hello to the ducks and off we went. I was assured that at the end I had earned a guilt free treat so I stopped for a hot chochie (with skim milk) and I even donated my marshmallows to a very happy Poppy. Back off home again, what is the draw with children and pressing the walk buttons. Only 20 more days to go and I am sweet - Feet don't fail me know. I must admit I am still recovering from the flu so I was only at 75% but I figure I had to push 10kgs of dead weight, I mean child too.

More sewing too - Another pair of boy pants, with the cutest little Japanese puppy pattern and contrasting orange stripe bottom. I am planning to make a matching backpack in the orange with a puppy pocket.
Also a purple dress with Japanese fabric detailing that I was waiting for my covered buttons to finish off. It looks so sweet on and I love the colour.

Hurrah! I've updated the team on your efforts over at the facebook group! I love your photos! Awesome job Mini-walker too (although that looked a wee bit easier!)

I absolutely love that purple dress! I would so wear that if you made it in an adult size, haha!

Good work on day one of the walking challenge! I sort of maybe forgot to do that today...oops!

I thought it was supposed to be a nice day today too....so much for that!
Yah to you for starting already....I'm just barracking from the sidelines.
I agree with Kerry on the purple dress.

Oh wow - those pants - that dress - they're both just gorgeous! I love the way the orange colour comes up through the back of the pants. Oh, and actually I made myself a purple linen dress early this year that does look quite similar to this one. And I love it too :P

Your walk pictures are very inspirational!

Fantastic pants and dress. They are really cute.

Good luck with the walking challenge. Great pictures you took along the way!

Thanks for your comment. I definitely need a partner to "encourage" me to exercise, but since I haven't yet found anyone, that's my excuse. I need the guilt of letting someone else down to motivate me - how poor is that! I love the comment on your profile too - sleep, ah I remember those days...

I love the walking photos, I should really walk a bit more too. Thankyou for commenting on my garden cake post :)
