What Are You Doing On Your Weekends?

Getting out with family and friends is so important. You can get in some great exercise going to fun functions. My husband and I got about 2 hours of walking done today. We walked to the Wings and Wheels festival in Wenatchee Washington. Then we walked around looking at all the cool airplanes and cars.

My favorite plane!

My favorite car! Hey it's a matching set...

The latest studies show that what you do in your spare time determines how fit you are. If you sit around all weekend after sitting around all week and only exercise for 30 minutes 3 times a week you will not get fit. I'm so glad they are finally talking about that. I've been singing that song for a long time. You do need your 30 to 60 minutes of exercise 3 to 6 days a week but you also need to keep moving as much as you can during the day. 

People were out with their kids and dogs. If you look around your town you should find some fun things you can do other than just going to movies...I am a movie nut but my husband and I  do walk around the mall before and after the movie. My husband is an exercise fanatic too. 

Sunshine, beautiful cars and planes and plenty of walking what a great day!

  1. What fun - I walked a half-marathon yesterday with a couple friends. We had a great time and I am only kind of sore today. :)

  2. I've never walked a half marathon. I've not run a marathon either and have no interest. My daughter did once and felt really bad afterwards. I know how tough they are on the body. She got into Triathlons and did very well at those. I ran 5Ks for charities but that's all.

    A half marathon is 13 miles? I think that's going to go on my list of things to do. Walking can be done for hours and hours. My husband and I walked for 9 hours a day when we went to Europe. What a great way to see things!

  3. Now THAT'S orange!!! It looks and sounds like you had a great time. So much fun!

  4. They were pretty eye catching! Thanks for dropping by.

  5. Just wanted to say that walking around the mall before and after a movie is a great idea! I'm going to remember that one!
