Thanks a lot for the help.
Hi tummytrainer - sometimes I use ankle weights, it helps me work harder and ups my heartbeats! I also cannot go without my music and I like to walk to the beat. DH does not use music - very a much individual thing.

+3 for me this morning.
Shuns - it WAS really great! I cannot believe how much stuff we did in 7 days.

I don't know if you recall , but last summer I had to halt my walking because I had fractured my foot after walking around Fort Lauderdale (50% of the time in flip-flops, my bad judgement). But I'm so happy to say, I was good this time and only wore walking shoes.

By the way, I bought the Sketchers Go Walk shoes for this vacation (for fashion reasons-they look cute with capris) and wow, I was pleasantly surprised as to how comfortable they were, extremely cushy and comfy with no break-in issues...highly recommend DC and Sketchers Go Walk!!

Enjoy the naps Heather! You need them!

+4 very fast miles this morning for tension relief. Off to the hospital later for DH's cardiac catheterization. Praying all goes well this time.

Heather- When are you due?

Shuns- I hope your hubby is feeling okay and your stress level can go down.

Shuns- You are doing the bet you can under the circumstances. Walking is therapeutic so I'm sure it's helping you out with your stress and worries when you do have a chance to walk.

+3

You are absolutely right Val. I always feel much better after a walk. sometimes I even find myself praying during a walk. Things will be much better when the kids move into their new home in august. Thanks.
