Not exercise, but contributing to my barefoot running, I wore my Five Fingers shoes to get used to them and build up my foot strength and flexibility while cleaning for two hours.
I also drove various loops around my neighborhood, clocking the mileage on my odometer. I found a 1.5 mile loop, and for future training, a 2.o mile loop and a 3.2 mile loop.
There is a cool website that also can help find mileage for various routes. http://gmap-pedometer.com. It’s designed for picking running and cycling routes. You click on “start recording,” then double-click at each turn to make a route, which you can name and save. You can turn on mile markers to see how it’s adding up and even ask it to complete the return trip. Calories burned will be calculated if you want (uses your weight, but still, I’m not sure how it does that accurately, unless it assumes your speed). The workout log looks handy if you’re not tracking anywhere else. Lastly, you can print out the map and also share on Twitter and Facebook.
Read Alcoholics Anonymous (the Big Book), the chapters, “The Doctor’s Opinion,” “Bill’s Story,” “There is a Solution” and “How It Works” to reflect on my powerlessness over sugar flour and wheat, and the unmanageablity of my life while eating those substances, which for me are addictive.
One thought is that I imagine everyone’s life is unmanageable when they are trying to do it all by themselves (without a Higher Power). I know mine is, and I don’t expect that is going to change by eating abstinently. I do think it will be easier to REMEMBER to ask for my HP to guide my life when I’m not whacked out on sugar. Ask and ye shall receive…it works!
