Fun Busy Day

Saturday, November 09, 2013

My husband and I leisured a little this morning. Finally, we got ready to go to the Annual Cherokee Trail Festival. I am so interested in the Cherokee. My great grandmother was a Cherokee American Indian. She was always so interesting to me. Her life was sad. The festival was fun. I love the Pow Wow. There was actually 9 Indian Nations represented. The costumes and dances were beautiful. We came home and had a nice dinner. I had it prepared ahead to make it easy for us when we got home. I worked on my Spark Page for a while. Hubbie was watch two football games. LOL One was West Virginia and Texas. We are originally from West Virginia. I decided to take our dog walking with me, while my husband watched his games. We walked for 80 minutes. My feet blistered again. emoticon It is back to taping gauze on the bottoms of my feet. I used Body glide, but it just isn't enough. I had been slacking some in the amount of time I have been putting into my exercise and took two days off from exercising as well. It showed on the scale. I didn't lose anything. The scale were where they were last week. I need to knock off the short exercise sessions. I need to get back to putting some ump in my exercise time and do more of it. I read when we are struggling or slacking we should talk it out with someone. So here I am talking it out with you, my Spark Community. So give me the old kick in the pants I need. I am exercising, just not enough and not hard enough. You can't burn enough calories like that. I am ready to listen, guys.

    YOU do NOT need a butt kicking!! You're an animal with all the fitness you get in. I have a suggestion though. What I do when I don't have the time to get in the lengthy workouts I like, I up the intensity instead. Like you, I'm a walker, so I force myself to walk faster. I usually listen to music while I'm walking, so I'll do one song at my normal pace, then the next one I get the arms pumping and really pick up the pace, challenging myself to make it at that pace through the entire song. Another thing I do that just gets the heart rate up is to throw punches while walking. I'll do every third step, jabbing out with the alternating arm. It raises my heart rate about 20pbm. :)

    Sounds like a nice time you had with your husband. I have some Cherokee Indian in me from my grandfather.

At least you didn't GAIN. That is a blessing. But, if kick you in the pants I must, then here is drill sergeant Cindy . . . "Get out there and MOVE, MOVE, MOVE!!!" That's the best I can muster. lol I don't like pants kicking.

    You stated exactly what you need to do. Go do it! I came to the same conclusion this past week. Now I'm walking more and really watching that I stay at the low end of my calorie range. emoticon
