FitnessFriday logoI know things have been a little quieter around these parts this week and while I would have loved to have popped in sooner, it just wasn’t going to happen. Sam was sick this past week so with 50 States events and driving all getting done by me so she could rest, I just didn’t really have time for anything else. When we’d get to our next destination, I’d cook dinner, clean and go to bed exhausted and wake up the next morning and start it all again. I’m happy to say she’s feeling better so things should start returning to normal for me soon. 🙂

The even better news is that we’ve finally hit some warmer weather and spent the last couple of days walking around warm and sunny South Carolina and Florida.

Next week is jam-packed with events so I’m hoping to get ahead of the game a little bit in this next week!

I’ve been loving the warmer weather, not just because it makes RV life and chores more manageable, but because we’re able to walk around and explore all of these new places we’re visiting. Walking is a great form of exercise and stress relief. While I love an awesome, sweaty workout as much as the next person, sometimes it’s nice to just walk! There’s been a lot of that this week and I’m definitely not complaining.

    I love walking! I’ve been doing more inside treadmill walking lately because of the weather but in spring, summer, fall I would walk everywhere I would! And just to listen to podcasts, so relaxing!

      I used to love that about living in cities, I would just WALK! Why take public transit on a beautiful day when I’m not pressed for time?

    Filthy Fifty is no joke!

    Every since I got my Fitbit, I’ve noticed myself walking more throughout the day, especially at work. Gotta get away from the desk! I do wish I had sand and beach to walk on though. =)
