Good day and welcome to my eighth link up with Joy at Joy’s Book Blog for her Reader’s Workouts series!
So far May has been a good month for exercise. In addition to the daily dog walks we have been taking them to parks for extra walks. We have also changed our hours at work so we go in later (and obviously stay later) to accommodate an early morning fast walk.
The dog walk is slow…..if you have a dog you know what I mean. Walk, stop, sniff, stare, walk, repeat. That one mile slow walk is a good warm-up for us. After the shibas have done their business we put them in the house and immediately walk at a rapid pace for a half hour.
According to the health app on my phone we have roughly 6,000 steps and 2 1/2 miles in before work. I keep the phone with me as it records movement and I get a general idea of the amount of time I spend moving. It’s rather motivational and inspires me to walk more.
Last Reader’s Workout I mentioned I couldn’t abide a FitBit on my arm or wrist. While the tracking mechanism is very cool, I don’t like bracelets or anything fitting closely there. They make two others that intrigue me – A Zip and a One. Either fits on my clothing or inside a bra. Still debating when to drop the money to purchase one of these gadgets.
Since this is Reader’s Workout let’s talk books. I finished Be Safe, Love Mom by Elaine Brye. Currently reading The Beekeeper’s Daughter by Santa Montefiore.
