Week Six

Walking Program

For the Kingdom of GOD is not meat and drink; but righteousness and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.  Romans 14:17

Getting our kicks in week six!

Are you getting into a a routine?  Feeling a bit more fit?  I've found that last week I had to walk a little faster to get the same intensity of a workout.

We are going to stay with 2 miles per day this week; adding in some abdomen toning for 3  of those days instead of 2.  Do your favorites, or try ours. 

Walk 6 times this week:

  • Day One:  Walk 2 miles, Ab toning.
  • Day Two:  Walk 2 miles.
  • Day Three:  Walk 2 miles, Ab toning.
  • Day Four:  Walk 2 miles.
  • Day Five:  Walk 2 miles, Ab toning.
  • Day Six:  Walk 2 miles.

Fitness Tip:  Pick-up-the-pace.  With normal activities, like going shopping, running errands, vacuuming, sweeping the porch etc...  move at a faster pace with purpose.  This will result in more calories burned throughout the day, and more energy for the tasks at hand.  When we are leisure with our pace even around the house, our brain activity slows down too.

Weight Loss Tip:  When you are done eating, brush your teeth or wash out your mouth with mouthwash.  This tells your mind that munch time is over.

Devotional:  Matthew 18:18-20, Acts 1:14, Acts 4:24, Acts 12:12,  Acts 21:5, Isaiah 58:9, Isaiah 65:24, Jeremiah 33:3, Zechariah 13:9,  and John 15:7.  In seasons in my life I have been blessed by prayer walking with sisters in CHRIST.  Not gossip, but genuine prayer.  We would use the church prayer list, missionary list, or bulletin for other events coming up, for example: Vacation Bible School, missions conference, and revival meetings.  Pray and ask the LORD if this is something that could work into your walking schedule, and if so, who would be a good prayer partner.  Amos 3:3
