I know I need to exercise more. I know I need to exercise period. But either I'm just plain lazy, in a funk or have something I perceive to be better to do.

Sunday, I just couldn't escape it. I was at an event that shuttled you from the parking lot to the event-about a mile. I had to leave early and the shuttle wasn't running. I had to walk back to the parking lot.

The walk was lovely. I couldn't have asked for a better walking environment. It was on a hilly, windy, wooded road with lots of little streams. I was either walking uphill or downhill.

Today I'm dying.

Not sure if I'm stiff from the walk or from driving 5 hours or maybe both.

I know if I walked more I wouldn't be hurting. I know I enjoy myself when I'm walking. Still, I procrastinate.

It was worth the pain. Such a beautiful walk. emoticon

    I love when exercise just surprisingly fits into your day unexpectedly! The other day when I had the kids Halloween Party, we were playing a game of switch. Where I was bending down and putting note pad paper on the floor and picking them up every few seconds as the kids ran to get a spot, before they get aliminated. I didn't realize I was exercising till I felt my knees start to burn and I thought (oh God this is hard!) two day's later.. my legs above my knees still hurt, especially trying to go up and down the stairs.... ouch!!

If it wasn't for that game, I would never think or want to do that kind of exercise! A surprise workout is great! Glad you got to walk and enjoy it! Hope there's more of those in your future =)

    Walking is my favourite exercise. I haven't walked in weeks...blech, this weather. Blech, I say!
Blame the stiff on the driving. I had numb bum for hours from a drive last week.
Driving is evil.
