Good Morning! We are at day 19 of 365 and I have walked 36.85 miles...36 miles! I think this is awesome! I must admit that my body is not very fond of our new walking adventure. The more exercise I do, the more my body fights me. I have had more pain with eating this last week than I have in months. Even liquid hurts. I'm back to smoothies and soups full time, so I must re-evaluate how much energy I am exerting. School has started as well as my MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) group so life is getting busy, and I know that is taking a toll on my body too. It is so frustrating not being able to do everything that I want to do. It gets be down a bit, but I will adjust and rise above. I may not be able to walk the 2.75 miles a day, but I will still get out and walk everyday. I am going to take Wednesdays and Sundays off and let my body rest those days. That sounds like a good plan, right?
You know what I have found to be the best part of this walking adventure? The best part is that I am not walking alone. I have many friends who are walking along with me. They may not have the same end goal that I do, but we enjoy walking together. Exercising is so uplifting, especially when you do it with others. We encourage each other, we laugh together, we enjoy each others company. Even our children love it, and they have no idea how good it is for them. They just love playing with their friends, just like their mommies do!
I am about to head out this morning and take a walk with my son. He learned how to ride his bike yesterday on our walk. He still has training wheels, but he figured out the petals. It was such a happy moment for both of us. I wonder if he will want to ride it again today. I bet he says yes!
Have a great day my friends! Talk to you soon!
