Exercise with a New Walking Routine

Stepping Out

My basic routine excludes exercise.  I am putting my lazy ways to the test and changing up the way my brain works when it comes to my health.  When I was younger, I used to run everyday.  Now, I am lucky if I walk a few times a week.

I decided to start a new exercise routine.  I am going to walk each day.  That’s right!

Exercise Video

So, here is my video of my first walk.  Man I’m heavy.  I need to get moving and it absolutely shows.  Walking can help, but soon, in a few months, my exercise routine will include a little jogging.  Maybe in a few more months some short runs.  I’m not looking forward to this, but it has to be done.  I have spent too many years with too little exercise.  I tried weights last year at the YMCA and it helped me gain some weight.

There were times I used to run a mile in nine minutes every day.  I thought it was pretty good.  I was at the point where if I missed a day, I would feel bad and have to make it up on the next day.  Now, I find it easier to just sit around than to get out and enjoy the outdoors.  Part of the goal will be to get in shape.  I’m not just trying to lose a few pounds, I need to lose a lot of weight.  I plan on getting into good shape and I’m not unrealistic.  It will take a few months to make a little progress and over a year to obtain my goal.

Hopefully, I can make it for about 20 minutes my first walk.  Walking isn’t very strenuous and I think I should be able to make it work.  Thanks for stopping by and please like and subscribe to my Channel.

Travel Trailer Update

Small Bumper Pull Trailer

So, after all of the research I have done to come up with the best possible travel trailer with the cheapest outlay of cash, I am a little stumped.  We have a tow vehicle that can tow 5000 pounds max with 500 tongue weight.  The tongue weight is a problem.   Man is it a problem.

Part of my objective is to put a travel trailer together that could be lived in for a month at a time while we look around and enjoy the beautiful country we live in.  Unfortunately, with my current specs, we are looking at some of the smallest models and a max of 22 feet with some of the “ultra lites”.

I  have found a few Flagstaffs that can do it, but I want to be a lot closer to unloaded weight of about 3000 pounds.  I hate hybrids, so the choices are small.  For a family of three it will be tight.

Andrew has been excited about this project and we have gone to look at a few of them.  He wants them all, and price is not a consideration for him.  Just ask him!    Elizabeth is on board, but I do believe a few nice options will be best for both of us, as we want to be comfortable without spending too much.

I suspect over the next month I will find it.  After all, it is something new and a challenge we all want.   Living in a trailer, staying at great locations, sometimes with full hookups and sometimes boondocking, is exciting.
