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!
