Today's Challenge: Enjoy your Saturday but please make it an active one. There are lots of ways to keep moving. Gardening and yard tending, walking with a friend, checking out a local farmer's market or going for a bike ride are a few of the many possibilities!

Supplemental Weekend Reading:
A neuroscientist says there’s a powerful benefit to exercise that is rarely discussed

    Although we don't typically have a formal challenge on the weekends, we hope you'll chime in and let us know what fun activities you're doing this weekend!

    I'm going for a walk! The fall foliage here in northern New England is beautiful!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    The Farmers' Market is part of my Saturday morning chores. I'll meet up with my sister there, and we'll head off to a workout at Curves. Sunday I'm hoping to do a bit of dancing practice after church, but I'll see if I'm able to rustle up a few victims, I mean partners. :)

    This weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada. For us we have a dinner planned out at a restaurant late this afternoon. Because I was ill 1 day this week, I am still catching up on house stuff this AM, and plan to do my 30 minutes exercising tonight. I will read the supplemental reading later on.
    We do have a hike planned for Monday though.

    That article is great motivation - especially for those of us trying to age gracefully!

    It's a little rainy here, but so far, I've been able to walk 1.5 miles outside. Later, I'm going shopping and walking all over the place. Exercise + Retail Therapy = Sheer Joy!!

    Thanks for the good read! Deal with stress + improve memory - I need to exercise every second of every day!

    We met up with another couple at our town's farmers market here in Germany and ended up walking about town for about an hour or so. I didn't get the steps in that I would have liked to today, but it was a good day.

    Today we walked to a local restaurant. Later in the day we took the dog for a walk. I am in the process of getting ready for a vacation and trying on clothes to see what fits and start packing!
