A New Routine?!

This week I had my hair cut by my thin & fit stylist and we started talking about exercise. In days gone by. . . I would regularly walk each morning before my dh left for work and it felt sooo good. Well, that was almost 3 years ago and I've been thinkin' about getting back into that routine. Of course thinkin' about it and actually doing it are two different things! Back to the haircut. . . My stylist began telling me that her routine is getting up each morning at 5:50, heading out the door at 6:00 and walking for 1 hour. And after 365 days she has only missed 5!! Whoooa! After picking my jaw up off the floor, I replied "That is committment!" So I've been inspired. This morning I headed out the door (about 10:00, I have to work up to the 6:00am thing and since my dh is unemployed- I'll take advantage of the blessings amidst trials) after reading the temp. guide stating a balmy 11 degrees!! Yes, I'd much rather be walking in this type climate:

But. . . it is the winter season where I live so the scenery was more like this. . .

The sun was actually shining today and after I warmed up a bit, the fresh air felt invigorating. It was MY time to think, pray, notice God's creation and do something good for me. I was more ready to take on my day when I returned home. Here's to once again making exercise a habit, a part of my daily routine.

Happy Thursday!

  1. Is she walking outside at that time of the morning or going to the high school?

    And now I've been reminded to get back into that walking routine...perhaps after Christmas...LOL!
