21 Day Walking Challenge - Day 8 of 21

Turns out it wasn't a great time to take on this challenge, but I have done my best.

I walked on Thursday, on Friday work was nuts  but I went swimming. Saturday was a full day of yard work, Sunday and today were spent walking around Niagara Falls and at a water park. It is Victoria Day weekend, which was very busy. Tomorrow I will get back to my regularly scheduled walk.

It has been a really fun weekend which we capped with a night in Niagara Falls.  It took us 4 hours to drive what is usually a 1 hour 45 minute drive.  We went to the Rain Forest Cafe for dinner, hit a bunch of souvenir shots and saw some amazing fireworks.  Then today we spent the morning at a water park.  It was great family time!

Back to work tomorrow... ho hum.

21 Day Walking Challenge - 3 Days down, 18 to go!

Little G insisted on joining me today; she didn't slow me down so I think she will likely be joining me I keep going. Last night we did a half hour of kids yoga together which was fun. I like that she is seeing me be more active.

My legs didn't hurt today while I was walking because I put my old shoes on.  I know now not to where those other ones anymore.

Until tomorrow...

21 Day Walking Challenge, 2 days down, 19 to go

It was an easy day to go out for my walk tonight.  Sunny, warm, but not hot, just a lovely day.  Put Tess on her leash and off we went.  I wore a different pair of shoes today and my calves were burning the whole time.

It was a much more difficult walk for me today. I am going to put my other shoes on tomorrow and see if that makes a difference or if I really am this out of shape.

I am feeling pretty even keel emotionally these days, but there is something going on with me.  I feel like I am at loose ends. I am searching for something new or challenging to do.  .sometimes I think of moving across the workd to work for a couple of years or on a smaller scale renoing our house or getting a new puppy.

Work is good, Little G is awesome, my marriage has its ups and downs, but there is something missing. I am working on finding out what that is.

21 Day Walking Challenge

I have had enough of being ginormous! I am overwhelmed by the amount of weight I have to lose and haven't been quite sure where to start.  I found a book called The Big Book of Walking for Weight Loss.  There are several different workouts in it for several different levels of fitness.  I am starting off with the 21 day walking challenge.  Every day for 21 days I will walk for 30 minutes. Today was day one and I rocked it!  I walked 2.4 km and felt great.

I am walking with the long term goal of losing weight, but really I am doing it for heart health and to feel fit again.

In other news, I am on cycle 4 of regular cycles. I am so happy I got over my stance of wanting to white knuckle my way through things and asked for medication.  It really has me in a good place emotionally.

Anyway, that is just a quick catch up from me.  I am hoping to have a daily entry while i complete my challenge.
