Walking can have so many positive benefits. It can relieve stress, help you clear your mind, allow you to spend quality time with a friend, and can help improve your health.
But as a busy mom, sometimes it’s easy to forget to take some time for myself. There is always something to be done around the house. Someone to take care of. Work to do. Meals to prepare.
Omron is a leader in the health & fitness industry and they asked me to help inspire you to “walk out” on the mommy madness and take some time out at least one Wednesday a month to schedule a walk with a friend. Having a friend along can help motivate and keep you on track. You will come to cherish that time together.
Another way to help motivate you on your walks is with the Omron Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker (HJ-327T).
The Omron Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker is a small activity tracker that packs a lot of power for a small price tag. The tracker records regular steps, aerobic steps, distance and calories burned and syncs wirelessly to your smartphone via Bluetooth® Smart technology using the FREE Omron Fitness app. And best of all it’s only $45!
For my “walk out on Wednesday” walk, I decided to walk with two of my very best friends. They are the most loyal and loving friends anyone could have.
Before I left the house, I attached the two must-haves for walking with my friends. My Alvita Wireless Fitness Tracker and my handy bag dispenser.
My two best friends find this view to be the most exciting part of their day.
I could learn a lot from their eagerness to just get out and enjoy the neighborhood.
And pee on fire hydrants. Well, maybe I don’t need to embrace the outdoors that much.
I like to check my progress frequently on my Alvita tracker. I love setting a goal for how many steps or how many calories I want to burn during my walk.
And when I do stop to look, Sadie waits patiently, hoping we get to keep walking!
Walking really is therapeutic for mind, body and soul. I get “walk out” on the responsibilities for a little bit and come back refreshed knowing I did something for me. I get to burn some calories, breathe in fresh air, get some vitamin D and spend some time with friends.
Who will you “Walk Out on Wednesdays” with?
