Earlier this spring my friend Cristi Comes asked me to join her in The Overnight Walk, which is a 16-18 mile walk that takes place from dusk to dawn in hopes to create awareness for suicide prevention. Having lost loved ones to suicide and seen how it affects others, participating in The Overnight Walk is important to me. The Seattle Walk is in mid-June. I hesitantly agreed to join her, because I know I’m not in the greatest shape and would need to really focus on my health to be able to participate.
But then of course, the tree pollen hit. I’ve been miserable for about two weeks now. Thankfully though, I started taking a natural probiotic, Insync Probiotic, which I found at my local Costco. For me, this dietary supplement helps get my system regulated so I can feel better overall. Insync Probitic contains the doctor recommended ingredient, B. infantis.
Now that I’m getting my system in check, it’s time to make sure I am drinking enough water. It’s something I’m really bad about, and something that is going to be really important when I am walking 16-18 miles in June. I’ve found having a dedicated water bottle really helps me make sure I keep drinking water.
Right now my body can probably handle walking about 3-5 miles – about 25% of what I need to be able to conquer in June. I need to start walking daily (which means getting over this crud) if I’m going to participate. Even though I’m just walking, it’s crazy important to STRETCH and warm up my muscles first – I don’t need an injury taking me down, right?
I’m slowly making my way to better health, and taking the steps I need to to walk 16-18 miles in June. In case you’re wondering, that’s about 40,000 steps. My FitBit might go into overload!
