My Fitblogger Challenge goal for last week was to walk a mile at least 5 days out of the week. I managed to do it!
On Monday I used our outside play time at work to walk/jog the playground. I figured 15 minutes is what it usually takes me to walk a mile so I started moving around the yard...and ended up with small children following me. (The other teachers were cracking up at me!) I spent the last 5 minutes doing races back and forth the big grassy area with the kids! Pooped me out!
Tuesday I ended walking to and from work...twice! I left some things at home I needed for work.
Thursday and Friday I walked at home in place with watching t.v.
Saturday was a big blow out. It was open house for the university I live near and we were out there for 6 hours. Yep, 6 hours of almost non-stop walking around! It's funny how I didn't really feel it until I got home and sat down. Then my feet started throbbing. By evening my hips were hurting and I could barely walk. I took some Advil and went to bed. Thank goodness I recovered by today. The feet are still a little sore but most of the pain in my hips is gone.
The plan is to keep up with each of the past weeks goals and add a new one. So, I'll keep eating my salad each day and walking one mile 5 days each week.
My goal for next week: Drink 64 oz. of water each day. I have a 16 oz. Flylady water bottle. I'll put on 4 of the different colored straps that come with the bottle so it will help me keep track of how many bottles I've had.
Wish me luck! I like water...but, it's always been a struggle to drink enough unless it's really hot...
