I had written before that I have tried walking as a way to exercise and get fit. I must admit that I have not done as much walking lately. But I have gotten back to what I usually do before to exercise: dancing.
I find it easier to do some dancing at home right after I finish my writing and blogging tasks. I only need to play some music on and then I dance away. Now, you might ask: how does dancing benefit you and me?
Dancing is considered an aerobic exercise. Some benefits of dancing include: improved condition of the heart and lungs; increased muscular strength, endurance and motor fitness and yes, weight management 🙂 Dancing also helps one gain better coordination, agility and flexibility. And I am just saying that these are some of the benefits. There’s actually more but the above reasons I mentioned are enough to keep me on my feet and making those moves. Care to join me? 🙂

My husband regularly lifts weights and exercises at home. I admire him for his desire to always stay fit and in shape. I, on the other hand, have been very poor in doing regular exercise. I used to dance a lot as a way of keeping fit within the confines of the house. But somehow, I have kind of lost my moves 🙂 So I’ve been trying to start a new way of exercising.
As the title may have hinted, the new way I am talking about is walking. Walking for 15-20 minutes 3 times a week. I’ve done that twice now within this week 🙂 As my hubby and I are overseeing a church just a bit outside the main roads and highways, I could do my walking from the church to our house after our Saturday prayer meeting and small group meetings within the week. The time is about 4:30-5 pm so the temperature is cooler; I also get to enjoy a view of the mountain in the distance. I plan to increase the pace of my walking and get a good pair of rubber shoes, too.
Now, how about you? Are you ready for a walk?
