We walked along the coast towards the Port where you will find beautiful little shops. It is a little sad as we come to the end of the summer season, one I think a lot of tourist places will be glad to put behind them. However, the morning people were out smiling as they always do. Jogging along the footpath and meeting up with friends in beachside cafe bars.
So DAY FIVE is all about your senses, Sight, Smell Taste, Touch and Hearing.
Be mindful of your senses today and write down on a piece of paper all that you have experienced today that has made you feel good.
For me today was…..SIGHT, the amazing Montgo Mountain, SMELL, bacon at breakfast. TASTE, definitely my coffee, TOUCH smooth pebbles on the beach, Hearing, My friend’s laughter. We have so much to be grateful for.

I managed 100 squats and I am going to stop at that number. I dragged myself out of the house, At least my trainers were on and I was dressed for a walk. I made it to the cafe, I needed to check my mail and see how many of you were responding. You are which I am pleased to say but you are not talking to me. Hellooooo!!!!! please tell me you are up and walking, If you are not and you are reading this snuggled in your bed then do not worry. Even if I can convince you to do one day then well done anyhow. Maybe that is one day more than you would usually do and I am still happy for you.
DAY FOUR Walk with style, hold your head up and be conscientious and caring today. Your focus is on long term. If you want change then you want it to last. Walking long term or whatever exercise you choose to do is your security for better health. This is the meaning of number four. By the way the number four picture is the one on my house and it has always been a lucky number for me. Do you have a lucky number?
THREE IS A MAGIC NUMBER, but before you start on DAY THREE, I want to express what a lovely day I had on day two of our walking challenge. I have at last achieved a habit of waking early and doing a few stretches and squats in the morning before I jump in the shower. I drove to Moraira (Costa Blanca) to meet my friend Debs in this delightful french coffee shop. Our 10,000 steps took us along a coastal path in the direction of Calpe, where we chatted about life and the things we want to find, to make us happy.
It is good to walk with friends when you can. Sometimes she will point things out to me that I would miss and vice-versa. I love the man looking out to sea, the chaotic pile of chairs and the locks left as love tokens. I then said I have to find a number 3. ‘Why?’ she said, “It is another challenge.” On every walk I am going to photograph a number. The number three in the photographs we found above a shop. We both said, ‘Yes that is the one”
So DAY THREE and well done for getting this far. I hope you are getting the hang of this, Walking is so good for your health not only your body but your mind too, and the number three is significant when we think of New Life, Completeness and Harmony, what do these things mean to you. I am happy to say my friend has just celebrated the birth of a grandson, so there is the new life. However new life can mean a lot more. Maybe you are thinking about your own life.
COMPLETENESS Do you feel complete? are you grateful for the things around you? or are there things you feel you can improve on.
And finally “HARMONY“
I have looked up a quote for you to take on your walk.
If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nations. When there is order in the nations, there will peace in the world.” Sathya Sai Baba
Walk happy on day three and take some of these words with you.

The Eve of a new challenge,
Excited or feeling a little apprehensive, I want to say this to you, Some people achieve the whole thing, some of us miss the odd day here and there and some only do a day. The important thing is you want to do this and that is where you start.
So it is the 13th September and all of you (Hopefully are eager to get started for any reason you have decided. WE START TOMORROW. Every day on here I will be posting and I hope you will make the effort to click on to the challenge page and give me an update in the comments box, leave messages of support for each other and DO YOUR BEST.
The September challenge is mainly about walking so post your totals. My own personal challenge is to make sure I do 10,000 steps before ten in the morning. Set your own.
There will be a few surprises along the way. See you all tomorrow.
ARE YOU UP FOR THIS?
CHALLENGES WORK, LET ME TELL YOU WHY.
BECAUSE THERE IS A TEAM
OF SUPPORTIVE INDIVIDUALS BEHIND YOU,
HELPING YOU TO BUILD NEW HABITS.
DON’T LOOK BACK.
ARE YOU UP FOR THIS?
I am so excited to announce the September challenge.
Walking is a wonderful way to improve your health, Whether you walk alone or in a social group it offers so much more than gentle exercise. When I walk alone, I become mindful of my surroundings. Walking clears my mind, reduces stress and promotes calm.
If you are trying to lose weight and reluctant to embrace challenging exercise, walking is a great place to start. Start this challenge by aiming for 10,000 steps per day. If that is too much in one go then do an early morning walk and another one later in the evening. Perhaps you can use this opportunity to start a new habit. Get up an hour early in the morning.
