Tonight will be the real test. So far we have walked Monday and Tuesday. I get home from work and we go as soon as we get the kids ready. As soon as we get home I cook a quick dinner and then it is time to put the kids to bed.

Tonight we have plans after work though. We are taking the kids to a concert in the town common. We will be getting home around their bedtime. That means DW and I will have to walk separately on the treadmill in the hot basement. We will also be doing it when we are ready to relax on the couch. I am going to do it though, no matter what.

But you've already planned how to get your walk done rather than blowing it off. That's speaks to your commitment.

I agree with the ever-wise Andy M!
You know how to squish one in and that's what counts.
We had to skip walking last night but DH traded it for helping coach Jake's baseball game and I walked earlier in the day.

Committed I am. I just need to make sure I follow through. I am confident that I will though. This is just something that needs to get done, no excuses.

Doesn't excercise make you feel so much better and active GB? I know we're feeling it and we've managed to lose a couple of pounds in a week. I know you can do this.

Well to be honest, so far I am not feeling any better physically. Mentally though I feel great. Knowing that I am doing something to better myself and not just sitting on my butt is really a great thing.

I'm sure you're already aware of this but Oolong tea mixed with green tea a couple of times daily flushes out lots of toxins. We're also taking flaxseed oil capsules, Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil), Bayer aspirin with heart advantage and a multi-vitamin which helps a lot with cardiovascular support.

Nothing to do with the high cost of gas, but I've been bicycle commuting to work at least twice a week. Actually, I've been doing this for a few years. It's only a 12 mile round trip commute but I get a nice workout out of it if I push hard.
