Two More Following In My Footsteps For A Healthier Lifestyle

Amazingly, I have done several consecutive days of 6 mile walks - 90 minutes in length.  Still hitting the beach area, but not the sand!  On Sunday and Monday two of my kids starting on a walking routine.  Of course they are not at my level by any means, but at least they had desire to follow in my footsteps.  The real test is whether they will stick with it or not.

Unfortunately, my daughter had some serious blisters after two days and took the third day off.  Can't blame her on that!  I told both of them not to overdo it and to keep it fun.  It takes them about a hour to go 2.5 miles, which is ok for someone just starting out.  I would be happy if they could do that about 3 days per week.  I'm really excited that they found the motivation on their own and hope for the best.

I try not to get too overbearing with them - bad habit of mine when it comes to weight loss strategy... bu tI do hope for the best with them.
