Lessons I Learned
Sunday, November 02, 2008
In an effort to conquer a plateau, my friend offered to walk with me over a bridge to give us an upgrade. I gained two things....a longer walk - this walk is 3.6 miles (my usual is 2.5) and an exercise partner. We are only able to meet once a week together to walk. It is still helping me though in my program. In order to meet together, we had to walk right after dinner. With the temperatures dropping, I also found it is much warmer to walk my usual walk after dinner as well now. I have found since making this switch that my portion size is smaller....can't walk on a full stomach. I have also found another walking partner in my neighbor, who has willingly joined me for evening walks. I think I should have switched to evening walks long ago....I am eating less and losing weight, I believe due to these changes!
