Do you let the weather dictate your energy level?
Friday, March 22, 2013
I decided that yesterday I was being a pansy when I decided to stay inside because it was too cold outside! It's not like it was really cold out since it was probably around 32 degrees F. But I let the weather limit my desire to exercise outside and make me feel sluggish and out of sorts. So today I decided to put my capris (exercise pants) on and a couple of light jackets and started the day dressed to exercise.
It kept me thinking about my exercise all day and when I got home from running errands I got my iPod, gloves and headband, hooked up my littlest puppy in her halter and leash and we went for a walk. It's not like it was really warm today because it was probably only 36-38 degrees outside for a high. I just said "forget that" and got acclimated to the temps.
My puppy Mia walks so much better with a halter instead of a collar so we didn't have to start our walk with a run like last time. We went 0.95 miles in 19 minutes, which is pretty good considering how often she usually stops to smell stuff! I think we'll have to walk by ourselves for awhile before we can attempt to go at the same time as hubby and Daisy. I think that this is the furthest we've ever been able to go on a walk so I'll consider this a PR for Mia!
