As you know, I’m part of the Shaklee/Cinch program with 50 other bloggers and we are all on a journey to lose weight and/or tone up, and get healthier. We get a shake for breakfast, then a shake or meal bar for lunch, and a sensible dinner. If you’d like, you can find out more about the Cinch Program.
Shaklee challenged us this month to get out and walk. That’s hard to do when it’s 100+ and disgustingly humid here in the Midwest, but last night I took a walk and made it almost two miles. I took quite a few photos, and had lots of fun. This one was my favorite. Keep in mind these photos were taken with a phone, while walking, so they’re kind of blurry.
This morning, I woke up at 6:30 and walked for 30 minutes. I took a gorgeous view of the sunrise. It wasn’t too bad until I rounded the corner and the sun was RIGHT on me. Then it got hot, fast!
After my walk this morning, I was pretty tired. Like I said, it got hot really fast! I took the dog with me and she was really worn out. So, we came home and got some rest. I worked on my swaps and cleaned up a little bit. Then, I got a wild hair up my butt and wanted to take the kids to have a picnic at the park. Fun, right? :)
I brought my 3 pound weights and while the kids were eating, I walked around the field they were sitting in, and got some more exercise in! They wanted to walk with me, so we ended up doing a lap around the park together, and finding a gorgeous flower patch.
Then, they played on the play ground and I walked around the perimeter. When I got near one of them, they’d cheer for me. I was sweating my butt off!!
30 minutes later, my walk was finished and we came home to relax some more. I am hoping I have the energy to do another 30 minutes tonight. This weight WILL come off. I’m SICK of it hanging around! So, I need a challenge. I did 100 miles on my bike for my birthday. What about 100 miles of walking in 30 days? That may be too hard… hmmm.
