    We are doing pretty well, we go to the gym four times a week, and work around out home (we have 7 archers ) several times a week.

    Must take it at reasonable pace. When I push too hard I injure something.

    So I went gung ho with the diet and exercise which killed my immune system. Sick since Wednesday. No exercise. Hopefully back on track by Monday.

    This week I started getting up at 5 aM to go to the gym daily. I feel great after working out and appear to be in a slightly better mood during the day due to dedicating the morning to myself, but the dent this has put on my sleep schedule is beginning to catch up with me. I don't know for how long I will be able to do this.

    Walk - Thurs, 23-Mar-2017 and Self Defense

    So grateful Master A did NOT test me today for my first belt. I was NOT ready. My daughter came to class with me and she is 1 belt from a black belt in karate. She is 16 yrs old and I hope by the time she graduates from high school next year that she will have her 1st degree black belt. She has a 3rd degree brown belt right now.

    I am the low man (woman) in my self-defense class. The other 2 women, one is a black belt and the other is an orange belt, which is what I will be getting. It was a good class and we did a lot of reviews - mainly grabbing the lapels and what you would do for self-defense for this.

    As for my walk, today I walked 2.87 miles and it took me 1:12:34 time. You can really shave 10 minutes off that because I got home and forgot to turn off my MapMyWalk app. Burned 473 calories. Breathing was more labored and it made it harder to walk.

    My body is feeling taxed from all the "stuff" in the air and it's impacting my lungs. I'm just starting to feel better, but it's now 5 1/2 hrs after my walk. I may have to limit my walks to every other day.

    So far, I have walked for the past 5 days and almost 16 miles. It feels great, outside of having more progressive breathing issues. I cannot get deep breaths. The weather was pretty much PERFECT today. It rained in the middle of the night and before my husband went to work, but stopped by the time I went for my walk.

    The air felt so cool and crisp. I had to wear a jacket while I walked, at least for 1/2 the walk and then I took it off and dropped it off at home and then continued on my walk.

    If tomorrow my breathing is labored more, I will not walk on Saturday. But, the weather is awesome and I really want to walk, but I don't want to get sicker from the environmental allergies.

    Walk - Wed, 22-Mar-2017

    Met a new neighbor down my street. Cindy and her dog, Marley. She is from Minnesota. Bet she's loving this weather we are having.

    Walked 2.87 miles. Took me 1:18:49. I stopped and chatted for about 20 minutes of that time. Burned 477 calories. Burned about 200 more calories yesterday by not stopping and chatting.

    Another gorgeous day. Today is supposed to be under 90° F and tomorrow in the 60s for highs. I hope.

    Didn't like that the highs in the 90s came already at the beginning of March. Way too early. But, it sure beats shoveling snow, so I'd rather take this than that.

        @bob1623 Not sure. I didn't walk Saturday. But I'm getting more walks in recently and I'm glad. I try not to walk when it's really hot. In the summer, the worst time, it's in the high 80s by 7 am so I try to get walks in before 8 am. Thanks for all the cheers.

    I signed up for Color run on April 1st. I'm so excited. This is a really good motivation. Usually I'm running with short walking breaks but in 10 days I should make 5k with no breaks. Pretty big challenge for me.

    IO tried this 7 day no crap challenge. I am in my second week. Good so far. Very hard to stay away from sweets. However, I've been working out every day!
