Today I walked 7 miles outside with a friend today. I felt extremely proud of myself because I haven't done real park trail walking in months. It was a gorgeous day, the sun shining but not too hot, lots of cute pups getting walked. Just a good day. By the end though my knees which have been aching the past couple of days were definitely protesting. I decided to baby them instead of doing yoga but made sure to get my meditation in. It just helped to carry along the peace that being outside to day brought me. Also fit in a couple of "spirit" exercises from 100 Ways to Keep Your Soul Alive, I've had it since college and always return to it for a uplift. I have hopes that I will sleep well tonight. Definitely need to look up stretching exercises for my knees so I can keep up my exercise momentum. I want to get back to 30 Day Shred this weekend so I don't lose any ground with the progress I have made.
I have hopes that as I make progress in losing weight/getting healthier I can convince my brother to start taking some serious health steps forward, I worry about him because of his weight. I want us to be able to visit each other as little old people fussing about young people not knowing anything ;-)
