Morning Walk Challenge

Posted by Lacey

After chatting with a fellow member we decided to help push each other to improve both our physical and mental health. A group like this can help keep us accountable and give that extra push sometimes to just getting moving. With this pandemic I'm guessing many of us put on a pound or two and stayed home quarantining. Time to break that habit. We have incorporated a daily walk, try to do some kind of measure to describe. Either in time or distance or if you really want to push yourself both. Next post a pic of your walk. More accountability lol. Second part, drink 1 extra glass of water than you normally do, and incorporate 1 fruit and vegetable that works for you. Incorporating a more nutrient dense snack will fuel the body and help to decrease that feeling of hunger and replace those empty calorie snacks. Anyone interested in joining us?

lovely : Sounds like a good way to improve health and lose a few pounds.I have problems with my hip and back so cannot do much walking. I know there are other things I could do like what I eat. Good luck and keep up the good work. Aug 17, 2020
HenryM : I'm with you each morning, usually going out just after 6 AM before it gets hot. I just got a new watch to track my distance, which provides extra motivation. Walking has so many benefits! Aug 18, 2020
Puppyluv56 : I used to walk three miles very morning but Fibromyalgia is NOT my friend so sleeping is a rarity but getting up early enough to walk is even worse. I did it for a year and loved the walking but getting up to do it nearly killed me. Anyone with FM will understand that. It is so hot and humid here in the south but I may try to pick back up in the Fall when I can walk any time if the day. Great idea! Good luck! Aug 19, 2020
Jepson : Hi, I love motivation to stay fit. I have the opposite problem, down to 86 lbs and praying to get back up in the hundred! I love bicycling, and go to the Ymca gym several times a week to do a light workout. If I walk it’s for the dogs!!???? Sep 17, 2020
Ritz : I’m in ! I too have put on a few extra pounds . I’m taking my bike in to get new tires and tuned up today . Sep 30, 2020
