Walk in the park

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I've been working out at my new gym now for about a month. I've been going about 3-4 days a week, 30 minutes each day. It's still a struggle on my joints and I'm suffering from exercise fatigue, but I'm working through it.

Got a lot going on. Dealing with some stress with my health. I'll fill you in at a later date.

Today I decided to go for a walk in the park instead of sitting on the couch ALL day. I'm still going to sit on the couch today, my body needs a rest, but it felt good to get out and get my 30 minutes of exercise in.

(hubby and my spaniel)

(there's a butterfly flitting about in there somewhere)

Enjoy your day.

    the photo reminds me of the path in the park where I used to live in WA, so pretty. I wish I had a park like that where I live now~

    Good for you on moving your body and knowing what is good hard earned soreness from working out and injury body pain. Keep listening to your body and keep up the great work!

    I like that - I'm still going to sit down today but I'll walk first. Great attitude! I am of the same mindset. I get the exercise fatigue, I do that as well but I can't help it - my body craves to go, go, go and then it crashes (happily) Love the flower pic!
Enjoy your Walk in the Park!

    The sun must have been shining on a lot of people last week. I too took a long walk outside. A friend and I have set our sites on doing a Marathon in August. We still have a lot of snow and ice (Anchorage, Alaska) but the sun was sooooo beautiful that we braved it. My friend is from Kentucky and took a fall. Scared me, but she got up and kept on going. 5-1/2 miles. Felt great! I didn't get pictures of flowers or butterfly's, but I did get a couple of photos of moose.

    I did just the same the other day. So tired of being in the house all winter. We've had an exceptionally long winter where I'm from (8 months of snow!!!!) and it was nice to walk aimlessly. Sometimes it's not about the physical exercice or even getting out of the house... your soul needs some much needed fresh air, too! Love the pics! Looks like you had a great day! :) Take care!

    I love walking in the nature preserve near my home, some how that seems less like exercise than going to the gym! emoticon

    Beautiful flowers. Good plan that is what I like to do, sometimes the gym is to much and a nice walk, taking in everything is so soothing . Great Job. I too have joint pain and I understand how hard it is sometimes, but like they say a body in motion stays in motion. But we do need the rest. Have a great day.

    I love the photos but I have a complaint - I need a better photo of your dog! Is he/she a Springer spaniel? Mine is a boy springer and he looks exactly like this: emoticon Okay, I know we have discussed this at some point, so excuse my wacky memory, but I don't remember seeing a picture of your dog. That looks like a wonderful walking path. I am sorry you are struggling with the pain and soreness so much - I know it is an exhausting struggle, Hattie. emoticon
