Each day I lace them up – double tie my Sketchers – Kucher would be proud of me !
We have lived in our community for thirteen years – and during that time – as it developed – so have the walking trails – 15 miles of them !
Soon – as other sections open up – an additional 5 to 8 miles will be added.
Walking has become a way of life for both of us – each with our own fit bits !
We have many different paths to follow – and can customize them to almost any length we want.
Our goal is walk walk 10,000 steps each day – depending on the weather, we also walk for different charities.
I have found walking outside – is much more to my liking than a tread mill – I get bored way to easy on them !
Health – is my main reason for walking.
In 2013 – ( see a previous blog ) I suffered a major HEAR ATTACK –
known as the WIDOW MAKER !
I ended up with OPEN HEART surgery – and am still alive ( I take Juice Plus )
My recovery has been amazing –
and I have the best coach I could have – my wife – who has worked so hard and absorbed so much in Healthy living.
Moving – is what my Heart doctor says is the one factor that means the most to me in my post care – along with eating healthy –
no dairy – no processed food – no red meat – no gluten – a little beer once in a while – and if I do have any of the above – it is rare and a small amount.
Maintaining has become a way of life for me – and taking a supplement – you can search the internet –
I stay away from vitamins – as they are mostly selective in my opinion – I choose the WHOLE FOOD way for my self.
Eating as many servings of fruits and vegetables as I can – and that is hard to do !
So – I use a supplement – called Juice Plus – raw fruits – vegetables and berries – juiced – skins and all – and then slowly dried – and left in a powder of nutrients –
that research proves goes immediately into the blood stream.
Walking for health – I have to if I want to live longer !
yes -I do cheat – it is too cold or raining or snowing
( next Winter we are going South ) so we do not walk outside –
but I walk in the house. I have a routine – but that bores me !
So – we head for the Mall !
I also keep my mind sharp as I can –
I find the exercise of writing – forcing myself to think – to create –
( I do not know what I will write each day ) !
My writing is SEEING and then THINKING and then WRITING !
Our Free Library’s offer a pickup and exchange books – you bring one and take one.
I READ all the time – my wife runs the church book club and I have read books that I have never heard of !
It keeps my mind sharp – you have to keep body and mind going !
We have tunnels – under the roads –
so we do not have traffic to stop our walks – there are now FIVE of them and I just read where another trail will open and another tunnel will connect us to it !
We have Deer – Turkeys – Bears – Foxes -Geese – Birds – fish – turtles –
although I have never seen a Bear –
I have seen pictures taken of them and home security footage of them with in a couple blocks of our home !
We are reminded about garbage we put out – I have seen Deer running down the street and other wild life.
I hope this helps in your quest for a healthy lifestyle –
ours is healthy eating – a healthy supplement – and walking – and reading
