Challenge Myself: Day #218 Skate Your Heart Out

Today is Day #218 of the Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my daily Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says, put on your rollerblades or your skates and skate your heart out.

The book says,

Have you tried skating lately? You can still rent skates and get a workout in a roller skating rink or ice skating facility. Ice skating is particularly fun when done in the winter in an outdoor rink. Roller rinks still offer the young and young-at-heart places to get a workout, complete with music and a light show. 

Another option is to buy some inline skates designed for skating on paved surfaces such as streets and sidewalks. Inline skates are sleeker and more stable and lightweight than their traditional counterparts.

So grab your family or friend or even your favorite canine for an afternoon outing in the park. Take 
along a picnic lunch, a bottle of water, and your inline skates. Don't forget to take along some gloves to protect your hands, and pads for your elbows and knees just in case you fall. But don't let the fear of falling keep you from working out and having some fun. Skating particularly works the thighs, calves, and buttocks, and when you see the results on your body for doing that type of regular exercise, you'll exercise your facial muscles too, into a big smile.

This is an activity I haven't done in awhile.

Just For Today: Brush the dust off of my rollerblades and like it says, skate my heart out!
