My sil and I recently decided to start walking together twice a week. This is our second week and it is really fun! We take our 4 kids out in their double strollers and hit the pavement! We try to go early so as to not be falling over from heat stroke during our walks.

The first time, we did 2.25 miles quickly and it was so muggy and I skipped breakfast and I hate to admit it but when we got done, my legs felt weird for a few minutes. Can you say out of shape?! I could barely talk during the walk! The second and third time was much cooler and I did 3 miles and I was fine afterwards so I really want to step it up to a few more miles. I had went by myself once, with my sister once, and with my mom 3 times so this walking thing seems to be my easiest form of attainable exercise .

I’m not so interested in losing weight at the moment, seeing as I’m just a few pounds from my goal weight and I’m afraid my milk supply will vanish with the pounds. I’m also afraid to overdo it because I know that could lower my supply on top of causing other problems but I really feel pretty safe with just walking. Although, those double strollers are heavy! My main goals are to get in shape and tone up the flab ab. 😉 I have another friend who said she would meet up for walks so maybe this could be a great opportunity to hang out some fellow moms for an hour or so, and get some of the health benefits of exercise, albeit very light.
