Meet Me Monday
While on my hike to Table Rock on Saturday, Kathy motivated me to join with her on a walk at the Boise Towne Square Mall at 7:00 am Monday Morning.
On Monday's I don't work because holidays usually occur on Monday's and it's nice to have a day I can move customers around or schedule special cleans if needed. I have a Trucking Company I clean every Monday night - which leaves Monday mornings open for an early morning walk.
It's nice having my schedule clear to join Meet me Monday free walking group / movement.
The mission of "Meet Me Monday" is to ...

I met Kathy at 7:00 am. I admit it was hard to pull myself out of bed on a day I could sleep in - but I need to do these things to move my body. It's nice that the traffic isn't too bad that early in the morning.
Also with winter coming up, I need extra motivation to keep moving.
There are a lot of senior citizens walking the mall in the mornings. I loved seeing friends walking together and enjoying the quiet mall to start the day. None of the businesses are open and there isn't any temptation to spend money - huge plus to walk early in the morning.
I really enjoyed the walk. It goes by fast when you have someone to walk and talk with.
At 7:45 a.m. I signed up at the food court area. You sign in every time you walk. After consistently showing up and walking you get a T-shirt, then a sweat shirt. Plus there are raffles for lots of fun prizes. When you check in there are tickets to put your name on and throw into a jar.
I love all of these activities I've been encouraged to join in!
Still motivated to make 10,000 steps every day.
