Good morning my little Bloggerettes. It's that time again, no I haven't forgotten, I am still here to remind you that it's the first of the month, time for the Walking Group to check in with their miles. We are past the halfway stage now, it's downhill all the way to the finishing line. I call it the finishing line, but of course it isn't for those who are making this challenge a lifestyle choice. Anyone who wants to continue reaping the benefits of regular exercise must not stop. The key to success is keeping up the momentum and making walking part of a healthy lifestyle.
Wherever you are on the scale of 1 to 1000 miles doesn't matter, as long as you are committed to doing some regular exercise. You may only be able to do short sessions of 20 minutes at a time, but over a year that could be increased as you become fitter and more active. As long as I can put one foot in front of the other I will carry on indefinitely, because some exercise is better than none at all.
It's 7.30am, Carol is not yet up so I don't know how her muscles are this morning. She made a fabulous effort yesterday. We did walk a long way, but we had rests, stopped for lunch, stopped for an ice cream, and stopped to people watch. She did a 5K Run For Life last month for charity, I am hoping that our walk has given her a taste of what is possible if she puts her mind to it.
As always I can only offer my encouragement to anyone who wants to start walking. I can't make people change their lifestyle if they don't want to, or if walking is a physical impossibility. I know I am like a broken record at times, but the benefits of regular exercise are well known. It's better to move about than to have long periods of time slouched in front of a screen.
So there you go, nagging over, let's see how you are all doing. I am on 700 and something miles. Please log your miles here.
Catch you later, Toodle pip
