In case anyone is interested....I am doing very well with my walking. I've been sticking with it and have lost 10 pounds already, and am feeling a lot stronger--which makes me happy.
I like to drive to someplace in town, park my car, and walk--so it keeps it interesting and I have new things to see. Early in the morning, before it gets hot out, is the best time to go....and it has the added advantage of being able to watch all the little birdies as they go about their chores early in the morning! I got an email this morning with some interesting walking and exercise tidbits...thought I'd share.
My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60... Now he's 97 years old and we don't know where the hell he is.
I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
The main reason I took up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing...
I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks; haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there. Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them. (LOL--my personal favorite!!) If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.
I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years, just by getting over the hill.
We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
All the cutey birds in this post are available in my Etsy shop--Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage--just click the pic and it will take you there!!
Have a wonderful 4th my friends--God Bless America!!
