Time To Move More

Nothing like a boat load of housework to make some muscles sing. I tired to cram a week's worth of chores into 1.5 days, for the overnight guests we're expecting. They will arrive around lunchtime. (Will the husband really notice the tops of the artwork frames were dusted?)


Well, perhaps not, but I know they are done. Plus, my stretching helped identify some new muscle groups!

The rain has ended, and refreshing, cool air is here! (NO MORE 90s !!) I'll begin a walking routine after the guests leave. I know I have no cardiovascular stamina to speak of, so it will be interesting to see what I can do. I'll have to start slowly and work my way up.

I'm actually a little excited to start moving. Weird, I know! Must be the 28 lbs I've lost ... losing weight has given me more energy. How about that? The cycle works in TWO directions. Gaining makes me want to move less, losing makes me want to move more.

Enjoy the day!

Milestone Day 70 and the open road (well, sidewalk) is calling to me ...


  1. It's good that you're ready to start moving. When I first started out I felt so slow and awkward. My lower back would go into cramps too. But now, after four and half months of being active I can hardly believe the difference. No matter how tough it may be in the beginning, just keep this in mind. It will get easier!!!

  2. Would your guests be opposed to an after dinner stroll in the evening if the weather is nice?


  3. Glad you're going to start walking. You will be surprised how it helps with the weight loss. And your muscles will respond quickly.

  4. Nothing like visitors to get a bit of motivation for housework. I need someone to call, giving me a couple of days warning and the house will be tip top instead of so so. *hehe*

  5. Cleaning is WORK :)
    Even that gets easier as we loose weight. That, and walking is really all I've been doing and it's helped a lot!
    Start out slow with the walking and you'll be able to go farther and farther :)
    You're doing great!

  6. Good job on Beating Your Feet!
    Pounding the Pavement!

  7. Plenty of room on the road out here for all of us. Come on over and lets burn some calories!
