Oh My Gosh!

I can't believe I did it! Today I exercised more than five hours. I walked over 26,000 steps which for my gate is almost half a marathon. I'm in real estate and because I have to work tomorrow, I was afraid I wouldn't get any exercise time in. I also like to take Sunday as a relax day, so I thought I would try to do two days in one. After my aerobics workout in the morning, I decided to walk to the store that is four miles away. I had no car today and the store gave me a good destination and a reason for going. When I returned home, it was such a beautiful day, I wanted to ride my bike. I thought I had already had a good workout, so I would take it slow and see how far I could go. I rode for an hour before I felt like I needed to stop. I am still so excited about my last Dr's visit that I decided to see how far I could push myself. I did the three mile WATP tape before I finally felt I could do no more. I have to tell you, I am not an athlete and even in my younger years, I never did anything like this. I Have had a lot of inspiration and motivation from my friends at SparkPeople and I know that is the reason , with the grace of God, for my success!
