My week of activity was a lot like the weather here in British Columbia. After a cold few days to start the week, the weather has warmed up to blue skies and gorgeous sunny days. In a similar way, my exercise and activity was very much the same. Cold to start and warming up as the days move on.
My biggest advantage in this healthy living, weight loss adventure has been my personal trainer. After being given a few days off because I whined about having a sore throat and feeling cold, my trainer took out the whistle and the blow horn and reminded me that I had goals and needed to get on track.
And what a week that has turned out to be...
Tuesday started slow but later that night my trainer and I got out to a local park and worked on our soccer skills for close to three hours. Lots of running, kicking and passing the ball.
Wednesday was another slow start for me but my trainer again reminded me that I had goals to meet this month and sitting on the couch wasn't going to help meet them. So the plan turned into a long walk by Crescent Beach and Blackie's Spit.
Thursday was even better in that there was no slow start. I was able to get out and do quite a bit of yard work and my trainer, seeing my detemination to keep active, even provided some help. In the evening when I hadn't reached my step total I decided to walk around the house until I reached my 15000 steps for the day.
Friday was the best day yet. My trainer and I got out for another walk in the morning for close to an hour. I came home and a wanted to have a nap but again I was reminded that sleeping would not help me move forward. So, instead of a nap, we went out for an hour long bike ride around the Fort to Fort Trail in Fort Langley. Great exercise and a great view along the way.
Today has started slow as I have been Sparking and working on things in the house but I anticipate hearing from my trainer and we will be off again..hope you all have a great weekend.

My Trainer (aka youngest DD) obviously frustrated by my slow pace and incessant need to take pics. Either that or she was a bit worn out.
