Another great day! During my walk this morning I wanted to shake things up a bit so after walking 2.5 miles I walked home and got my 5 lb DBs. Then for one mile I carried them while doing some bicep curls and shoulder work while walking. I found it a great way to get my heart rate up while walking. I will need to get some 3 lb DBs so I can carry them longer, after 1 mile of curls, I was zapped, especially after yesterdays ST workout. I completed my walk with a 1/2 mile slow jog with a few walking intervals for about 60 - 90 seconds. My total mileage this morning was 4.25 miles and I found it to be a wonderful way to start my day!
I am hoping that after a few more days of walking along with a good 4 miles or so on Saturday I will meet my 20 mile goal for this week. We have rain coming tomorrow so I may need to work around that.
I once again pre-logged my dinner for the day. We are having more chili and cornbread, it was SOOOO good! I have had several request for the recipe so I will have to post it later tonight. Overall, today was another successful day. Mom and baby to be are as happy as we can be!
