Good day's walk...

Friday, November 30, 2012

I walked 12.1 miles today, and Cooper walked 8.7 miles of that with me. I was browsing online through fitness equipment and found a doggy pedometer. I am really tempted to get it and start tracking his steps. I bet he takes a LOT of steps! No sun today on our walks, in fact it was doing this weird, almost snow precipitation on our morning walk. It wasn't really freezing rain, but not quite snow either. I didn't like it very much, but we still walked.

Foodwise I am doing okay. I cut way back on my exercise, but I am still losing weight, so the adjustments I have made with my diet must be adequate. I don't let myself get really hungry, but I don't eat all that much at once. I eat fairly small, nutritious, home-cooked meals most of the time. On rare occasions I will go to the Bistro down the street and buy a bowl of their carrot ginger soup. It is vegan and very tasty. They don't go overboard with the salt, which I appreciate.

    That's no walk - that's a hike! Good for your little doggie buddy to be able to walk 8.5 miles of that with you! I never heard of a doggie pedometer, either! emoticon

    Maybe I should clip my old Omron pedometer onto one of my pups before a walk!

    I never heard of a dog pedometer either! Pretty cool! Congrats on the great mileage today!! The most I've done is just over 10 mi. Usually do between 8 - 9.5 miles/day. My dog is my hiking buddy too! It's really wonderful to spend the time on the trail together with your best buddy!! You're doing a great job! emoticon

    Never heard of a doggy pedometer. That would be cool. Jack Russell's are never still.
