Wing Walking :-)

I just made that up...

Y'all, I have a confession to make. I hate to exercise. There. I said it.

But on the IP I'm supposed to do it 3 times a day. Bleh. Yoga is awesome. You stretch and you breathe and you do your best to become a human pretzel and it's so cool. Dancing is just plain fun, especially if there's nobody there to laugh at you. When I was in college I took Tai Kwon Do classes and that was a blast. Keee-yah! But ::deep voice:: "regular exercise"? Where you sweat and stuff? Yuck.

Anyway, my body is really starting to respond to the great cleansing and herbal therapies I've been doing, and I HAVE to work out now. My entire family runs, and have all encouraged me to do the
Couch to 5K program. That's how they all got started running, and some of them are training for a half marathon this fall. I just looked at the program a few minutes ago, and it just looked too challenging for me. It's supposed to get you to a 5K (3 miles) run in 5 weeks. It says you can go slower, but right off the bat it has you jogging, and I can't run. Even with my walker I can't run or jog. So I got discouraged.

I prayed- Lord, I want so bad to just be "normal." But You know I'm doing good just to be walking.... Walking! A lot of people just walk!

So I did a quick search and found... The Walking Site!
And guess what- you can WALK a marathon. I nearly cried. Because one of my "things" to say I have beaten this disease is to do a marathon.

Well, that is certainly a long way off, so I went to the beginner's page. They have a deal where you walk every day and in 12 weeks you walk for an hour. Now that sounds doable, even for me. Here's the link:

This program starts out with "On Day 1, your goal is to actually walk out your front door, walk down your street for 5 minutes, and turn around and come back." That is probably the hardest day on the program.

OK, so I want to instigate a new program, just like we started Tincture Parties (oh btw- Monday is the new moon), Trashing Saturdays (there's still time today if you haven't trashed something today!), and the Got Garlic t-shirt. And this is, of course, Wing Walking!!!

OK, Uny, you can do that when you go flying next weekend 8-0

Let's make our first goal a "Mile In The Morning!" Our theme song? What else? lol

We're gonna be so HEALTHY!

Love y'all,
