Walking for Weight Loss Day 5 of 100

fitbit dashboard walking for weight loss

I conquered Hefner Lake and so its time to move on to the Oklahoma River.   My first choice wasn’t to move on to the river but the other lake nearby required payment and there was no attendant available to flash my disabled vet status to get in free so I decided to trek to the downtown OKC and conquer the Oklahoma River instead.

Now I love my city and all but the Oklahoma River is located in some pretty questionable territory from drunks, to the homeless, to gangs so needless to say I stayed on hyper alert with 911 on speed dial.  I literally took note of what every person I passed was wearing so that I could quickly rattle it off to the 911 operator.  I have watched on too many shows and if I get kidnapped I am leaving clues all over the place.

So obviously nothing happened to me because I a here writing this post.  It was actually a very nice walk and I am happy to report I walked the entire river in just a few hours.  The few people I did see on the trail were in groups on bikes.

I can’t say that I will walk it again alone since the entire time just left me feeling so uneasy but I am happy to say that I at least got it under my belt.  It was definitely a walk to remember!  As you can see I didn’t beat my steps from the day before but 20k steps isn’t to shabby if I do say so myself.

So the week is coming to a close and I started thinking that with pushing myself this hard I have to have some rest days or else my body won’t allow me to continue.  SO I declare Saturday and Sunday my rest days of course I still have to walk but I won’t be going out to any special locations on these days.   I want to reach my goals and I know that letting your body rest is also very important when it comes to reaching your goals.    Monday is going to be Memorial day so chances are I won’t be doing much walking for weight loss on that day either but I will keep you all posted.

Have a super terrific weekend and keep on moving
