Aloha Friday: I Think I'll Go For a Walk Outside Now…

bundled up for a walk with daddy

This week we’ve started a habit of walking every night after dinner as a family. If the weather is good, we’re doing a mile and a half, bad weather, just a half mile. This used to be normal, we used to walk farther, but the weather grew colder, we grew lazier and we fell out of habit. And I fell into weight gain again. Not good.

I’m not proud to admit that I’ve gone kicking and screaming back into this routine. Most nights I whine and grumble all the way out the door. But by the time we get back, I’m always glad we went and I’m lucky that my husband has put his foot down and dedicated his nights to this and encouraging me to keep going. He’s a keeper. And I know it will only get easier, especially as the weather gets better. I look forward to walking in warmer temperatures and eventually longer days so it won’t be dark by the time we get out.

I’ve tried a lot of different work outs, I dabble in different things, but walking has always been my favorite choice – the most natural, the easiest and most relaxing.

So my Aloha Friday question this week is:

What is your favorite way to exercise?
