Monday to Friday ...This week's walks

July Day 5 to Day 10 Walking 30 every day

 Unstoppable ... I found this video this morning and wanted to share it. It made me think about how we all begin this journey in life felling unstoppable but over time we receive the message that we should be somewhat afraid of taking chances and pushing forward. It might not seem to fit with the theme of walking but I think that we carry this fear of failure into so many aspects of our life ... we want to be the best we can be but what if we fail? Why try? mI love the way these young women are knocking down the boxes ... breaking through barriers ... we could all use some of that.
This is Terra Nova our 2nd Newfoundland ... wonderful dog who got us out the door every day

 I have been walking my way through this week in a variety of ways. Every day there has been a walk with the dog ... having a dog has saved me from a sedentary day so may times I can not keep track. If you have a dog you could be seen as having an unfair advantage in the Walk30 Challenge especially if you have a dog that sits in front of you at about 10 p.m. and whines:)

Check out this article from Wendy the walking expert at About.com ... all about the benefits of walking your dog.

Day 3, 4 and 5 Walking All Weekend

Day 3, 4 and 5 included a visit to Stratford and it was just beautiful!

On Friday we were strolling around Stratford.  My husband got tickets to the Stratford Festival Theatre and we saw The Sound of Music.  We have been going to the theatre there for many, many years and I think that this production was one of the very best I have ever seen ... or heard! Bravo!

We made a point of parking in the middle of the city and walking back and forth from the theatre to the downtown area so that we could get lots of steps in. A little bit of shopping and dinner helped to rack up the minutes of walking today.

If you love the Sound of Music be sure to get yourself to Stratford this season ... amazing.

Saturday morning was a walk with the Walk On Strong group in Waterloo.  It was a coolish, sunny morning ... perfect walking weather. 

Sunday would have been a great day for a walk outside but we were sorting and clearing at our house.  We went through all of our clothes and gave bags and bags away ... it felt great and I was on my feet all day ... when I stopped moving at the end of the day I realized I had 20,000 steps on my fitbit.

All in all it was a weekend of moving ... :)

Day 2 Walking around the Farmers Market

Day 2 Market Day in St. Jacobs

 Today we decided to visit the local market in St. Jacobs and it was beyond busy!  It is a destination for many folks from Toronto and all over southern Ontario especially in the summer.

You can easily do a walk30 at this market because it is enormous!  We stopped for an Americano at the coffee cafe in the main building and we were glad that we did ... it was excellent.

If you are ever in this area the Farmers Market is a good place for a walk.  Later I was out walking the dog a few times so I definitely got my steps in today.

Tomorrow I will be walking in Stratford ... love the summer!

Walk for 30 minutes every Day this month ... Walk30 Challenge for July!

Walk30 begins again!! Happy Canada Day!!

 It's Canada day!
...  a new day and the first day of a new month so it must be time to start your next Walk30 Challenge. 

I am back to my blog after a little writing holiday but I have still made time every single day to walk30.  I must admit that when I am writing about my walks I am more focused and dedicated and quite often my walks will become longer and pictures will be taken!
So look forward to more pictures, tips and adventures ... and if you need a fitness goal why not commit to a walk30 in July and join me!

My first day and here are some displays of patriotism that I found in our neighborhood!!
