Great Morning

Thursday, October 11, 2012

The weather is fantastic this morning so pooch and I took a power walk. I carried some tips from my former trainer which add effort without feeling like it. I wear 2lb weights around each ankle. Place a piece of tape between my shoulders to remember to stand up straight and hold by abs tight. Do modified interval walking-100 steps at a faster rate than I normally walk, then 50 steps at my "regular" rate (counting steps instead of time makes it easier than continually looking at a watch). Always, remember the sunscreen (I use either SPF 70 or 100 on my face, 50 pn my forearms, and leave the area from my shirtsleeve to my elbow without any to absorb the essential vitamin D with less risk of wrinkles or skin cancer on my face, and less signs of aging on my hands and forearms. Within 15 minutes of returning home, eat a snack of 25 grams of protein that has no carbs and less than 5 grams of fat. Hope any of these hints are useful for anyone else using walking as one of their fitness routines. 50yrs-50lbs (Shaun's nickname) emoticon emoticon
