Good morning! Happy Wednesday! Two more days until surgery. Today is work and then BOWLING! My girlfriends and I are “Diamonds in the Gutter’ and we will be Bowling for Kids Sake (BFKS). BFKS supports Big Brothers, Big Sisters which is a fantastic charity. Here is our group photo from last year:
This year is Glow in the Dark bowling, so I will be wearing a TON of glow bracelets. We are heading to our favorite Mexican place beforehand for some margaritas, so bowling could be pretty fun. In case you are wondering, I am a terrible bowler. One year I don’t think I broke into DOUBLE digits. Yes, DOUBLE, not TRIPLE. But we have TONS of fun and we try to raise at least $500 total for our team and that’s what really counts.
So, last night I went walking with my hubby and our friend J. After I finished and they were running a couple of laps, I started to think about what I will and will not miss about walking while I am recovering.
- Getting to talk to hubby and J while I walk or calling someone to chat on the phone
- Getting outside and enjoying the fresh air
- The exercise – I swear I feel my thighs shrinking when I walk
- 5Ks! I love them. I already have 3 planned for the Fall.
- Soaking in the sunshine
Will Not Miss:
- The BUGS! They were eating me alive last night.
- The HEAT! Once it gets over 85, exercising outdoors loses its appeal for me.
- The PAIN! The reason I am having surgery in the first place.
Luckily where we walk/run has a cute little gazebo with a table and bench. I plan on going when hubby and J run and just enjoy being outside.
Fit Body Blueprint for Women
I’m excited to share a fantastic new program created by my friend Sean Flanagan called the ‘Fit Body Blueprint for Women’ – a beginner’s guide to hormonally and metabolically sound exercise. The Fit Body Blueprint for Women program, is officially launching TODAY at a special launch price of $29.95. It will continue at this price through Sunday, April 21st.
“I created this program to address all of the misconceptions that surround women’s fitness and give you a blueprint (hence the name) for how you can take control of your health and body.” Sean Flanagan
I will state that I disagree strongly with him on one point. Sean says, “walking isn’t exercise, it’s an activity.” I think walking is a fantastic exercise. At one of my healthiest times ever, I was walking at least 30 minutes 5 times per week. I anticipate doing a LOT of walking once I recover from surgery. I completely see it as my MAIN form of exercise. As I said above, I can feel (and measure) my thighs shrink when I consistently walk.

What fun thing are you doing today? Do you bowl? What would you miss most if you couldn’t do your favorite exercise for a while?
Enjoy your day!
