Walking & Generation Legacy
Friday, November 06, 2015
I haven't posted for almost two weeks. It is weird how my brain works now -- it is so foggy. I can "write" a blog in my head, then when I get to the computer I draw a blank.
In my last post I talked about movement vs exercise. I have been more aware of not just sitting, but making sure I get up and move around. Having a simple step counter has been motivating trying to get to that 5000 steps daily goal I have. Some days I reach it plus more, other days I don't. But those days I don't I am not discouraged, because I know I did move.
I have another motivator in moving (step counting), I am doing virtual walks on the Walking4Fun site. www.walking4fun.com
It is a lot of fun to see the "countryside". I am doing the trails from shortest to longest. I recently finished the first one Crater Lake Rim Trail -- It was only 36 miles but it took me way too long to do -- almost 5 months. I started the Tour Mont Blanc Trail on 10/24, Total Miles: 106.6. I have already completed 24.6 miles!
As I have said before, both my doctor and Metabolic Effect has said that leisurely walking is the best form of exercise, especially for adrenal fatigue. I am making it a goal to complete the Tour Mont Blanc by the end of the year.
l spent last Saturday going through my parents pictures. Yesterday I listened to Mark Hallock's (my pastor)sermon "Five Life-Altering Truths About Jesus and His Ministry to Us". The connection?? The sermon was on the genealogy of Jesus in Luke 3. One truth really hit home..."Sometimes the biggest contribution you make is not your contribution at all, but it is the legacy & lineage of faith that comes through your family line. The Lord calls us to be faithful in our generation."
I am grateful for the Christian legacy my parents, grandparents & ancestors left me and may I pass it on to my children, grandchildren so that they will pass on to those that follow them.
