Week Seven

Walking Program

Being confident of this very thing that HE which hath begun a good work in you shall perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.  Philippians 1:6

We are over halfway through our 12 week walking program, congratulations for sticking with it!

Is this getting tedious?  Add a little spice to your routine by walking a different route;  walk around a park, or a soccer or softball field while the kids are at practice, or hike down a trail.

This week we are increasing with 2 1/2 miles per day and  abdomen toning for 3.  Do your favorites, or try ours. 


Walk 6 times this week:

  • Day One:  Walk 2.5 miles, Ab toning.
  • Day Two:  Walk 2.5 miles.
  • Day Three:  Walk 2.5 miles, Ab toning.
  • Day Four:  Walk 2.5 miles.
  • Day Five:  Walk 2.5 miles, Ab toning.
  • Day Six:  Walk 2.5 miles.

Fitness Tip:  Don't skip breakfast.  Eating breakfast gets your metabolism going for the day.  If you are an early morning walker, eat a breakfast that includes a simple protein 1 hour after done.

Weight Loss Tip:  Have you hit a weight loss plateau?  Try increasing your daily activity by adding 5 to 10 minutes of exercise another time during the day.

Devotional:  Matthew 6:9-13, Matthew 11:25-26, John 17:1-26, Philippians 1:3, 1 Peter 5:7. 

  • Intercession, how could we incorporate the outline of the model prayer into our prayer time?
  • Praise, what specific things has GOD  taught you this past week?
  • Thanksgiving, thank GOD for answered prayer you have experienced this past week?
  • Passion for others, what weight are you carrying for others?  Spread these burdens out before the LORD.
