Walking Steps

One, two, three, 
I’m walking more than before,
Now I’m headed out the door.
Walking steps every day,
If I don’t, I might decay.

Five, six, seven, 
When was the last time that I ate?
After this walk I’ll fix a plate.
I’ve been eating the wrong kind of food,
Now I'll change my attitude.

Nine, ten, eleven, 
And finally now it’s twelve o’clock,
There’s a restaurant on this block.
What’s their specialty? I don’t care,
I can get soup anywhere.

Thirteen, fourteen, fifteen 
I was just passed up by six teens,
Look at them in their tight fit jeans.
Even if I walk everyday,
I will never look that way.

I count my steps when I walk,
I’m always out I never baulk.
Ten thousand steps is my goal,
And I’ll do it bless my sole.

What is the benefit of walking steps?
Because at night you’ll have more…. energy to participate in activities!

    Yes indeed. I try every day to get my husband to walk with me and the dogs. It's necessary to get out and get that fresh air. Besides. If I don't go my new knee gets stiff. Ouch. Great job here Tony, God Bless, JB
