Planning A Walk Alone

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Do you try to get your exercise with a buddy? I do.
The problem is, they can let you down ("got a cold", "I'm too tired", "It might rain") and then the temptation is to forego the activity.


No partner-- NO PROBLEM.

I will undoubtedly walk faster and farther. I can plan to do another of my neighbourhood trash pick ups too. (Double walk). I will bring along a GREEN garbage bag and pick up fast food rubbish that litters my walk ways and totally frustrates me.

Happy St. Patrick's Day... and get outta my way!!!

    The best walking buddy for me is Dora dog! She is always ready to go for a walk, even if we have just come back from one and I forgot to check the mail on the way back in, she's ready to go again.

    Used to do that but after someone made fun of me and called me a Bag lady when I carted a whole bag of trash off the street. I gave up picking up trash further than my own front lawn! Your a brave soul!

when I was a kid we used to sweep the whole alleys and the gutters along the streets in front of our house, but people dont do that any more. I used to live in a very clean and caring city then! It was also safer to walk on the street then too; because more people were caring and out cleaning the street also! I wish to bring that back to our neighborhood... we truly had sweeps then!

I can clearly remember taking a push broom and sweeping up the whole street . Wouldnt it be nice if we can turn back the clock on some things! Then afterwards we would have cook outs or parties . Now it seems people want an entitlement before you can get them to clean up the neighborhood trash! They wnat a free meal "before" they will even join any group of people or do anything for the community or neighborhood! Pat yourself on your back. your one of a kind! susana

    I did do double the activity that I would have done with my neighbour walking with me. I brought enough litter home, on my first walk, to fill 2 garbage bags AND later in the day, I walked another thousand steps around our neighbourhood.

It was a brilliant day and I loved having the sun in my face. emoticon
