I have not been happy with myself lately and have been trying to change my habits so I can shed all the extra pounds I've packed on. I haven't been very successful so far.
I read about a walking plan that is supposed to help rev your metabolism and thought I might be able to do this. You walk for 18 minutes a day 3 days a week for a total of 54 minutes a week. You start out walking at a normal pace for 4 minutes then 30 seconds as fast as you can. Back to 4 minutes normal another 30 seconds and keep repeating until you've reached 18 minutes.
I wanted to start on Monday but it was raining. Tuesday I was telling one of the cashiers at work about it and when I was leaving she told me to go for it. When I got home instead of plopping on the couch I grabbed Gibbs and we drove to the local park.
Gibbs was more than happy to help me out with this and since other than blog friends he's the only friend I have he was the likely candidate. We did our first 4 minutes and he was full of enthusiasm and ready to go. Just as I was beginning the first 30 second full steam ahead Gibbs decided that he really needed to poop. Well what can you do when nature calls.
We made it through the rest of the 18 minute walk and sat for a second before heading back home.
