Walking, walking and more walking!

Wow, I was busy today! And it felt GREAT! Today was my day off, so Taylor and I started the day with a half mile walk around the neighborhood. Every place you walk around here is either uphill or downhill! And lucky me, the uphill part is on the way home. :P
After the walk, we did yoga for half an hour. Once Austin got home, we had a lunch of chik'n patty sandwiches and steamed broccoli. So yummy! Then we went and picked up a friend and went for another walk. All four of us did 1.25 miles, then the kids pooped out and went to the park while we did another 1.5 miles. Even with the kids, we did about an 18 minute mile. Once it was just us, we did jogging intervals as well and did around a 15 minute mile. I'm a little pink now. :P And I'm now sporting my very first workout-induced blister! It doesn't hurt yet, but I'm sure I'll feel it tomorrow. lol From now on, I'm making sure to wear socks tall enough to keep the shoe from rubbing on my ankle. :P
After the walk, we came home and remade Taylor's birthday cake. She wanted it a little different this time, so we made it with peaches and raspberries instead of pineapple and mandarin oranges. And instead of the vanilla instant pudding, we used cheesecake instant pudding. Its so yummy!
Taylor and Austin headed to the basement with me. I got a huge section of carpet up, and we scraped all the matting off the floor. Then we did an initial mop of the cleared section. My house smells like bleach now. lol All in all, we spent almost an hour and a half down there cleaning. I can't wait to get it all finished.
Now I'm just trying to get caught up with all my Spark stuff, and I still need to get a little strength training in. Then its off to bed so I can work tomorrow.
Have a great night everyone!
