We decided to walk on the trail we did a couple of weeks ago when we got caught in the rain. Thankfully we did not get rained on this time :) We also invited our friend too. Earlier this spring she ran/walked a 1/2 marathon so we knew she would be up for it. (She has lost 87 pounds in the last year or so.) We picked her up at 6 am. Nothing like a cool summer morning to get you going.
We headed out with lots of energy! We moved along at a good pace, but not so fast that we couldn't chat as we walked. Of course, I had to pick my friend's brain about her success and her struggles. The secret to her success...hard work!! Sorry, there is no easy way. You just have to put your head down, make good food choices and move your hiney. No way around it! I also got some good tips on workout wear. I am sure by now you have noticed I have a very limited workout wardrobe. I usually end up wearing the one pictured above because the pants have pockets. By, the way, consistent working out means loads more laundry..be prepared! My friend recommended a belt that has a pouch on it for a phone/camera/keys/ID. I will have to look into that - sounds very convenient. I would like to choose my workout wear on cuteness - not pockets. It was so much fun having her on our walk with us...got to make plans again!!
