An Outdoors Activity Program: How to Get Fit for Fun This Summer

Are you getting into those “lazy hazy days of summer” when you start wishing for the hours when the kids were away at school and the house was quiet, instead of hearing them all day playing in the yard or the street?  Do you feel the sense of exasperation from having to watch the third or fourth rerun?  I started feeling that way before the temperature reached 90 degrees.  But I found a way to escape summer’s doldrums by starting an outdoor activity program.

Many people think of outdoor activity as “roughing it” like hiking and camping, or exercise like jogging or climbing.  You put on an outdoor shirt, boots or sandals from Merrell and go off into the natural world.  These are good ways to stay fit while enjoying the outdoors.  But they are not the only ones.  Your regular summer outdoor program can consist of taking regular extended walks right in the center of the city.  Put on some good outdoor hiking shoes you get from Merrell with a Groupon coupon or promo code for 50% off and go for a walk on the nearest road.  Make it a group activity by bringing young ones along to see and learn about trees and landscapes.  Go on history walks to learn about your local community.  Take routes that let them (and you) see what makes up your neighborhood.  These are great things to share with kids who’d otherwise be playing computer games.  And there is no doubt that walking different routes can be more interesting than watching summer reruns!

Try this as a good way to begin this new outdoor regimen.  The next time you go to the grocery store or supermarket, walk there instead of driving.  Bring your young ones along, and have them walk with you, and talk about the sights you see while on the way.  It might seem different but this can soon become a regular custom. And it can quickly become an element of your daily lifestyle. Use a Groupon to get Merrell shoes and accessories for other family members to encourage them to join your walks.  Take advantage of the chance to enjoy the outdoors this summer.

God will lead the way

I thought it would be that scary when you will have a medical career. But I think it’s not. Yes it will be scary at first but after you will get used to it, it won’t be that scary anymore. If only I did take up nursing when I was in college, probably, I am helping thousands of people already. It would be like I am one of the instruments in God in saving people’s life. But who knows someday somehow God will guide again on how to be in the medical profession without any cost coz when I was in college there was a free scholarship offer for me back then. If God wants me to be in the medical field, then he will lead me to have free studies once again. I always believe that God will lead the way.

Wanna have a quick weight loss

When I was pregnant with my youngest baby, I was around 170lbs. I was so huge with my 5’2” height. After I gave birth I trimmed down to 140lbs. After that, I told myself that I need to trim down to at least 120lbs while breastfeeding my baby. After breast, I said that I will trim down my weight until I would reach 75lbs (feeling aspiring model – nyahaha). Anyway, it’s just a joke when I’ll say 75lbs. The truth is that I want to have a quick weight loss of at least 100-90lbs. As of the present I am at my 120lbs from my supposedly 115lbs. I guess I’ll have to make this as my career this year! Yayyy!

Thankful for fast recovery

From Monday January 13th until January 17th was kind of ordeal for the health. Thank goodness everything went well. I am so thankful to God for healing my kids and I, especially my 2 year old baby girl. God is good all the time that despite of what was going on, she’s recovering fast. I hope and pray she is in her healthy body right now and every day as well as my whole family.

In need of medical insurance help this December

This December, I need some medical help from my insurance since I will be having a surgery. I am hoping everything will just be fine and I will recover at least within a week as I have a five year old kid and a 3 month old baby. No one will help me and my family here so I will do my best to get back with my health again. I hope my surgery will be successful and also my insurance will cover most of the cost as my family doesn’t have any savings at all.
