Feeling refreshed

I just came back from our daily walk. A new resolution (among my many) is to walk more. I am not an exercise person, even though my daughter is trying to get me to join her challenge (get me to a gym? really?) but maybe one day I can take her up on it.

Meantime, I am content with doing about 1500 steps each morning. We have breakfast, digest awhile and get ready to go out. The weather has been great so far and just a hoodie and vest is enough to go out. So we are taking advantage of it. Walking also affords us the pleasure of talking without distractions like tv. And on our walk we take in the neighborhood, meet some of the neighbors and wave to the many dogs on the blocks. They are usually being walked by their owners and have actually gotten to know us themselves. Some want their petting done and others, well, a wave is enough.

I often think of getting a dog myself but not sure I want the responsibility or can keep up the care of one. The thought of walking one during the snow time here in NY gets me leery since I am not always steady on my feet. So we are just thinking about it right now.

Now that we are back home, hubby takes the time to nap but I feel like I can go another 1500 steps. But this is a day I have other things to do. I have a meeting coming up this afternoon and of course finishing up my Avon orders…although a big one went in yesterday. I like to submit my orders on a Sunday because then it is delivered on Wednesday when I know I will be home to accept it.

So what do you do for exercise?
