Ready to get active in the great outdoors

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Ah, it's that time of year again, the temperatures are warming up and it's perfect weather to begin trekking outdoors a bit.

But for me, that doesn't always come natural. Sometimes I have to make a plan to get my tushy outside. I don't know what it is, but it's so easy to stay inside sometimes.

But there is so much beauty outdoors and so much fresh air, I might as well enjoy it while it's there.

I expect come summertime, I'll be wanting to stick near my air conditioners, but I think maybe I should push myself this year to expand my territory to places a little warmer than my air conditioned home.

What to do, what to do. Hm.

I could just go outside and walk, but I know that I can only take that so many times before it has me bored out of my gourd. My attention span for that kind of thing is limited, so I expect I'll have to change the scenery every now and again. Hopefully I'll find something new to look at.

Or maybe old places I haven't been in a while.

I'll have to dig out some pants too. I wear skirts a lot - but skirts aren't always walk friendly - especially if the wind blows!

It's not like I always want to wear skirts, I wear them because I have to. It's hard to find clothes that fit well at my size and shape. Pants emphasize all the wrong curves on me most of the time and I don't like the look of them.

I can hardly wait until I can actually buy pants without much trouble, when my midsection has trimmed down quite a bit. When that happens, I think I'll buy them by the armload and think twice about wearing skirts ever again. Okay, maybe I won't completely rule them out, but I probably won't wear them nearly as often as I do now, which is almost every day.

I think in part that's one of the places I went wrong. I stopped wearing pants. Skirts are so forgiving that I barely noticed myself gaining the weight once I started. But wearing pants, it's obvious when that starts happening. They don't forgive an expanding waistline nearly so much - although I am sure there are some exceptions - and I've probably worn them too.

It's been a long time since I've worn my sneakers. I think I could use some new ones, but maybe I shouldn't be in a hurry. Maybe I should get outside first, and then buy the shoes, although I'm not sure it matters so much which order I do it in.

I guess in a way I'm over thinking this whole thing about getting outside, but in a way, maybe I need to because I almost feel like I've forgotten how to just get outside naturally.

When I'm home, my curtains are always closed, so I really don't get much sunshine. I think it's time that changed.

I think it's time I let in the sunshine, and I think it's time I actually get my tushy out in the great outdoors, because it's good for me!
