I have been walking for exercise for 10.5 years now. I have walked well over half way around the world and am on my way home!!
These last few days I have been having a hard time getting going on my walks. Maybe it is because I am tired of walking inside and am anxious to walk outside again. I have been walking on the treadmill for 3 months now. I didn't think I would use a treadmill as much as I have, but this winter I have been very thankful to have it. (we kind of inherited it when we moved into our home). There has been so much snow this winter!
I have forced myself to get on it in the morning and once I do, I have no problem in keeping going. I am trying really hard to do spurts of high intensity and am really feeling like I am getting a good workout. I have to figure out a way to do more fast spurts consistently when I am outside. Maybe I will just do the treadmill for a small part of my walk to make sure I keep it up. We will see.
Some day I hope to be able to achieve the same level of control with my eating. I never believed I would maintain an exercise habit as long as I have, but still going strong!
