I had a hard time going out the door this morning. My legs were hurting and I just didn't feel motivated. Nevertheless I went out - could not pass by a rainless morning.

I was not going to try to go up into the highlands - this is causing too much pain in the knees and legs - so I decided to head towards the Squamish Adventure center using this nice paved trail. Soon after the swimming pool I found a natural mud trail and I followed this. So easy to get lost in my thoughts and just enjoy being alive. I am so blessed. I started thinking about what a friend said to me yesterday - once I start work in April - I will not have time to go on all these walks - this program is not sustainable... Maybe not but for now it is. Once I begin work I will figure something out to make sure I do not gain weight. For now I am soaking up the sun and the scenery

These are just a few pictures I took of my morning walk

    Such beautiful scenery.. I'm envious! Keep up the long walks while you can and move to shorter ones when you don't have as much time. emoticon

    Great pictures, I know that busy work hours, surrounded by food is going to be a challenge, but one step at a time, one day at a time you will find a way! Walking is just more then moving the body it, gives us a chance to sort out our thoughs, or just think about nothing, and enjoy the nature around us! Have a great evening!

    Great pictures and it looks like a lovely place to walk and to lose your thoughts along the way. Once you start working again, you will find a way to keep up the walks because you will miss them. emoticon

    Once the season starts we also have a hard time finding time in our 18 hour work day to get any exercise in. However, we place a high priority on it and try to get out for an hour hike with the pets nearly every day. We find that we're much more effective at working when we take regular exercise breaks. Plus our crew members appreciate us taking the effort. :)

    You might not be able to do the LONG walks, but why not be happy with shorter, 30 min. ones after you start waorking again? Hang in there...'where there is a will, there is a way'(so I have been told) emoticon
