A note from Toni:
Today is the fourth week anniversary of walking consistently with a partner. Two more weeks and it’s a habit, right? Hopefully it will become one of those habits where I’m absolutely driven to do it and I can’t live without it, like my life is way off balance if I miss exercising and nothing goes right until I walk. If it does become like that, it will be the first time ever in my 45 years of life!
I recently heard a talk from a gal that claims she “loves, loves, loves exercise”. She majored in some sort of phys ed degree, teaches phys ed at a community college, is a personal trainer, and she is in fantastic shape. I believe that she loves exercise, I just don’t understand that kind of fanaticism.
So today after walking, I noticed that my heart rate didn’t sky rocket out of the recommended range, my muscles aren’t sore anymore, my blisters are almost healed, and I rebounded quicker after the walk. I also am finding more energy to weed, do dishes and laundry, chase after my 2-yr-old. My leg muscles are feeling stronger. I’m scared to say it, but I may be ready to kick it up a notch. Just please don’t let my walking partner know that. She’s already trying to kill me!
