Walking Update

Jet's New Collar

just a quick picture of Jet with his new collar! I actually got him three new collars, lol. Yeah I know I buy him a lot of collars. But you can see them! Even my smooth collies hide their collars in their fur. I need a security camera to see the darn things. But Jet’s shows very well!

Okay so back to the title of this post… I wanted to post an update on how many miles I’ve walked so far on my 30 miles in 30 days challenge. I’ve been going as often as I can, though I missed yesterday and the day before. And does doing yard work count as walking? LOL I’ve been doing that too a lot the last couple of days.  Today I took Levi and Lucy with on a walk. Lucy is slow and doesn’t go very far, so we only went three quarters of a mile. But it was a fun walk anyway.

So far I’ve gone 8.42 miles.  Since my goal is 30, I think maybe I’m a bit behind, since I’m supposed to be done by the end of April. Hrm… I guess I better step it up!  I will need to go 3 miles a day to meet my goal by the end of April! Well that probably isn’t going to happen. LOL. But I’m going to keep walking anyway and see how far I get!

One and Three Quarters Mile

Levi and Jet on a Walk
Well I went on our first walk today for our 30 miles in 30 days goal! This is a picture I took on my cell phone of Levi and Jet. I took them both with. Levi because he doesn’t get out as much as he’d like, now that he’s retired from dog sports. And Jet because, well, because he’s the puppy and has the most energy of all my dogs.

I really love getting out in this nice spring weather and getting some exercise. And if I’m going to lose five pounds this month, as is another of my goals, then walking will help. And goals are a good thing… my husband is going to school, and has a goal to get his degree, go through some employment screening, and get a job.. then I can retire (I hope) and he can support me and my dog habit! Oooo I hope that really does happen, but I’m not positive it will. One can hope, though!

30 Miles in 30 Days

I do want to get out an exercise more. I can’t bring myself to go to a gym and do a treadmill or something, not with seven dogs at home that are always begging to get out and do something fun.

So, I’m going to try this goal, even though I’m starting a bit late for April. A new friend of mine is doing this on her blog, Lessons From and For 4 Legs, 30 miles in 30 days.

Tonight the weather is looking really good, the sun is out later so it’ll be sunny when I get home… and so I’m going to take a couple of dogs and go for a walk for a mile or so. I’d like to go more than a mile, but not sure I’ll do that. We’ll see how it goes! Maybe I’ll snap a picture or two. However, my MacBook is still in the shop so I don’t have a convenient computer to use. I just hope I can find my way home through the neighborhood.. maybe there’ll be some exit signs that I can follow, if I get lost! Though the dogs, quite often, know where home is and can get me there again!
