Yesterday I managed 4 games of pickleball, plus a little bit of shopping. So I figure I got across Utah.

Yes, it is. The house we were in 6 years ago was across town, just a mile away, but the setting was quite different. Now we are basically in the center of town and can walk to the library (four minute walk, even with little kids!) and all kinds of small stores and restaurants, the YMCA, Rec Center. My parents were just 10 blocks away, but since they died, my nephew is going to by the house and live there with his two young girls that my daughter often babysits, so at least we still can go there, even if Mom and Dad are gone.

This Sunday, my Marine son was home. For my WALK, we all (all 11 of us + plus one of my other son's girlfriend walked about 7 blocks downtown to a Mexican Restaurant. So I even got my walk in on Sunday.
None today though.
Anyway, I blogged about this, so I won't say more.

And we all lived happily ever after...

I forgot about this. I haven't been able to do much lately because of cold/allergies (whatever, but I think combination). I finally managed to play 2 games of pickleball yesterday (probably 15 or 20 minutes total), but haven't been able to do anything for the last 3 weeks other than that.

I have to catch up my map logging, too, but I'm so excited to be able to say I walked two miles today. That's a big deal to me, because I've always hated walking.
I decided to Walk with a Purpose.
For those of you haven't heard me say this yet, I've decided to have a REASON to walk- a destination.
So one day, two of my girls and I walked to our local used books store.
The next day, I wrote a notecard to my mom's friend and walked to the post-office to mail it, instead of sticking it in my mailbox.
Then the next day I walked with my son to the local Speedway so he could make a purchase.
Monday, we just took the kids we watch for a short walk.
And today, we went in search of a fellow churchmember's house that we've never been to, but new it was somewhere near us.
That walk ended up being 2 miles. I never walk two miles, unless it's at the zoo. lol

And we all lived happily ever after...

I don't know that both would be considered cardio today, but the 2nd class, though not necessarily for cardio, gets my heart rate up some until I am more used to it. This morning I went to a pickle ball clinic (want to learn to play it) for a half hour, then to a Senior Sneakers class that is mainly for stretching and resistance, with some marching in place, tai chi type moves, and balance thrown in (I don't have balance) for an hour. So I finished IOWA (one letter was left) and am at least half way across UTAH.

I have decided to start with the closest 4 letter to here, so am going across IOWA. If I include the little dancing I did in the kitchen the other day and my recumbent bike (that about killed me today since I haven't done it for a while) I have made it 3/4 of the way. I am hoping to learn something in the morning if I can manage to get up early enough and then keep it up in the future. I will see.

I need to print out that map or at least a list of the states.

Oops, just thought of a closer 4 letter state (next door, no less). Guess I will go there next.

If it were my game I would count anything that raises the heart rate to cardio zone. =)

I was dancing to no music for about 15 minutes while I did dishes. Would that work? I just felt like dancing and just saw a video of a lady who lost half her weight doing that.

I'm only able to do light yoga & stretching now. Nothing that could be mistaken for cardio. Susan said only cardio could be counted.

Awesome!
Keep in mind two things.

1. You can only count CARDIO, since this is Cardio Through the Country.
2. You don't have to do the whole state at once. For example: in Ohio, you can just exercise for 20 minutes and earn the O and the H. Then come back and finish the other two letters later.

And we all lived happily ever after...

Oh Good Grief, Charlie Brown. I was just on my other team's page (home schooling) and spent the time to catch ALLLL MY MINUTES up....from last JUNE!

I'm going to copy and paste them here.
But first I want to tell ya'll the process I went through.

First I began with the United States.
Then South America.
Then the islands ABOVE South America.
Then Central America.
Then Canada.
Then on to Europe. I just have one more location in Europe to visit.

I began this in October of 2015.

Okay, here's my update.

I've got to go back clear to June, when my Dad was in the hospital and later died.
Anyway,
June- 0 minutes of cardio
July- 0 minutes of cardio ( I'm beginning to see why I gained weight. lol)

oh now, HERE'S something funny...
August- TWELVE MINUTES. lol
which brings me to...
The L in Belarus.

September: 190 (back at it!) which brings me through Belarus, Kazakhstan and to the C in Greece.

October: 394 cardio minutes. Which brings me through Greece, Bulgaria, Iceland, Hungary, Portugal, Austria, and to the first C in Czech Republic.

November: 569 minutes which brings me ...took me through Czech Rejpublic, Serbia, Ireland, Lithuania, Latvia, Croatia, and to the 'a' in 'and' of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

December: WOW, 1, 086 ! Which brings me through...
Herzegovina, Slovakia, Estonia, Denmark, Switzerland, Netherlands, Moldova,Belgium, Albania, Republic of Macedonia, Turkey, and to the 'e' in Slovenia.

Phew!

January: 750 cardio minutes which brings me through...Slovenia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Azerbaijan, Luxembourg, Andorra, Malta, Liechtenstein, San Marino and to the 'n' in Monaco.

Wow! I'm almost done in Europe! Just have Vatican City left!

And now I'm caught up to this month. Phew!

Happy Traveling!

Make sure you stop and chat with each other if you're passing by!
Also, you can stop and research that state/ location on the internet and tell us what you sights you saw!
Have fun!

STRNGNGRND: Your map will work just fine.

And we all lived happily ever after...

Build up the Culture of Life!
We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.
If only moral people are willing to do that, mass abortion will end.

Thank you, Susan. I'm in even though I'm just beginning to get back to non-PT related exercise. This should keep us busy for awhile.

Very cool Susan. I'll print it out and give it a go. I'm going to have my son join me since he does treadmill workouts for PE.

I couldn't get the url to work. Is this the same map?

This is a game I created a couple of Autumns ago, to help us get through the winter.
I call it Cardio Through the Country.


To begin this game, choose the state with the least letters
Work out for 10 min per letter. It can be done in a day, a week or whatever you'd like.
When you have completed your w/o (ex. Ohio=4 letters x 10 minutes= 40 minutes for Ohio.) shade it in on a map (if you'd like) and announce to us!

You can find a blank U.S.A. map here:
http://www.eduplace.com/ss/maps/pdf
/us_nl.pdf

(Here's other ideas you can adapt your game to:
As a homeschooling team we can have the kids read a brief overview of each state! Two birds-one stone.
OR as a Christian team, we can concentrate on praying for the leaders, family members, or sparkfriends in each state.
OR, like I do on my Pro-Life team, we can pray for the sanctity of life to be embraced in the communities of each state. )

Ohio, Iowa and Utah are the first states with only 4 letters each.

I already went through the trouble of organizing the states by number of letters. I advise you to take advantage of it, because it took a lonnnnnnng time. lol
