It's been a depressing week, the Boston Marathon, the horrible flooding here in my area among other terrible local news. I had to avoid the news as much as possible lately. I tend to absorb others sadness.
I focused on Spark People; I read blogs, diligently logged my food, I worked out and kept reminding myself this sad news and endless rain will pass.
The weather is finally spring like this weekend. It felt SO good to get outside. I had a great run yesterday. I took less walking breaks than I usually do, I kept thinking about those that cannot be active right now and pushed on.
It looks to be another beautiful day here so I'm thinking about a bicycle ride. My yellow lab is laying at my feet, patiently waiting for her walk. I'm getting the big eyes. The second I get up from this chair, she'll be on me like glue "are we going now? what about now, can we go now?" She definitely keeps me moving.
I think I hear the Brady Bunch singing....
I think I'll go for a walk outside now
The summer sun's calling my name
I hear ya now I just can't stay inside all day
I gotta get out get me some of those ray ay ays
Everybody's smiling, sunshine day
Everybody's laughin, sunshine day
Everybody seems so happy today
It's a sunshine day!
Check out the video, I dare ya not to get in a good mood!
