Walking Great Exercise ! Why Waste Money At The Gym !
I've been walking every day now for 48 days, I'm very proud of myself as I'm not really a big fan of exercise. As a lot of my readers may know we live on a 25 acre block, so I have been walking around the fire break of our block, it takes me 20 minutes. They say if you do something for 21 days it will become a habit, I haven't missed a day, it has become part of my day now. Jack is on school holidays so he has been walking with me but my normal routine is walking to the end of our drive way, where the school bus picks Jack up at about 8am every morning Monday to Friday then I set off for my walk. I love the crispness of the air and it unblocks all my sinuses, my breathing is improving since walking also,which is great,I sometimes walk barefoot, great for earthing me, so much healthier then any gym. You get fresh air,exercise,earthing,beautiful scenery, all the wild flowers, we saw emus yesterday , I usually see heaps of kangaroos, once I saw a fox, all for free. Summer time I'd be scared if I saw snakes, but as its not that time of year yet I won't think about it yet. The photo above is part of the fire break around our block.I've never been a member of a gym , I've always thought it was a waste of money, when you can do some many things that keep you active. My friend Debbie and I used to meet and go walking along the beach that was lovely, look forward to doing that this summer,so Deb if you are reading today's blog, what do you think. Here are a few photos of the wild flowers now in bloom on our block. What does every one else do for exercise, I'd like to buy a bike and go bike riding, that would be a nice family activity to all go bike riding , I will put that on my list !
