Update On Weights While Walking - From Ridiculous to Realistic
Saturday, August 22, 2015
I recently blogged about wearing 5 lbs of arm weights when I walk. (2.5 on each wrist) Swell. Then I added a 6 lb weighted belt and wrote about that. It was challenging, for sure, to have 11 lbs to deal with.
But what I didn't write about was that I then added another 5 lbs. of weights to my arms. Yes, a total of 16 lbs. Crazy. Yes. Insane. As I walked, I apologized to my body for ever having had put on that many extra lbs, and thanked it for being patient while I lose another 16. I struggled with the weights all the way home. It was the time of day when it had been cool, but the cloud covering burned away and the second half of the walk was HOT.
When I got home, I realized that I am being foolish by adding that much weight. I've come to a realistic conclusion of just sticking to my 5 lb arm weights and that's it. Nothing extra.
It really helps me work my arms while I walk.
Wishing all a wonderful day.
