Walking for Fitness

Friday, May 10, 2013

I'm a walker and love to be outdoors enjoying both the fresh air and the benefits. Walking became a part of my life about a year and a half ago and to this day - I feel as though I am truly missing something that is a part of me if I don't "get out and walk" everyday! I look for every opportunity to get in a few extra steps and even have learned to embrace walking my puppy as something that isn't a chore but good for both him and me!

Today I walked 7.4 miles and still have another outing with my puppy before the evening is over. This is a new personal best for me and I am excited to have reached this goal without even trying or consciously thinking about setting a new bar for myself. Its my time to think things out, to meditate and to "talk" to my pooch without having to have an answer as I get it off my chest!

Anyone else out there walking for their health? Have any great music you listen to or things you meditate on? What goals have YOU reached? I would love hearing from you and making new walking friends. I'm up for a challenge if you are!

Meal Replacement Shakes

Friday, May 10, 2013

I have started using the Shakeology Shakes and love them. The chocolate is amazing and you can add so many things to them. They also have Vegan formulas of Chocolate, Strawberry and Greenberry. Have you ever tried them? What do YOU add to them to make them more satisfying, tasty, and fun?

Looking forward to hearing your ideas!

    I don't know what it is, but the Shakeology Shakes keep me fuller longer.....probably due to the protein. When I am going to have to go a longer time between "meals" I add a tablespoon or two of SunButter (a peanut butter substitute that's much healthier for you). That helps me sustain until my next meal!

    I sometimes use a whey protein shake for breakfast in a pinch - but I get hungry within an hour or two. Eating some nuts sometimes helps.
