To accomplish my goal for the month, I had to figure out two more times to walk. To do that I had to sacrifice time to work, which then makes my other work times more stressful because I have to attempt to do more in less time. I didn't accomplish all that I hoped to as a result, but I was able to make all 4 walks this week. Praise the Lord.
I sure did miss my morning walks on Monday and Tuesday (when husband was hunting). I feel like less of a human being when I cannot get out to walk and I'm perfectly healthy, so should be able to get out.
No, walking with the children is not an option. Part of the point of walking while wearing/having only my babygirl is #1 to get away from my full-time job (my children) for an hour... sometimes less... sometimes more. But that is THE ONLY time I get away. It can become a bit much to never get away. I'm sorry to say it, but it is absolutely true. If I didn't have meditation, I would be going nuts right now... as I probably was before I had meditation. Even prayer and scripture reading/study, which I still do, did not help me the way walking and meditating have!
The other reason I walk without them is so that I can walk swiftly. To accomplish the same exercise with children along would require AT LEAST 4 times the time spent walking... well, my children just wouldn't be able to walk that long.
The scale has been calling my name lately, but I still haven't checked. I'm thinking about it more and more, though! It sure would be lovely to see a decrease there since I feel it in my clothes! We'll see. :)
