Forest rain

Saturday, November 09, 2013

Greetings to everyone,

Well I embraced the rain, in fact my friend and I were so busy chatting and climbing over logs, stepping in squidgy mud, laughing and admiring the view that we did not even notice it was raining heavily.

If I had been home I would have had a gloomy face, miserable that it was raining, but being out changed my whole outlook.

Here are some photos,

So what have I learnt?

This journey has truly become very profound, I would have never expected in focusing on a healthy body it is aiding a healthy and positive mind.

I used to think that I can only be happy when the sun is shining and hot, but today proves that this is not the case. Instead I am learning to have the ability to dance in the rain, and deal with whatever the day has in store, with great gratitude.

Thank you my SP friends, who willingly offer support and advice daily.




P.S I can't wait for the snow now!

I have to say the rain kept me indoors but next time I might suggest just going for a walk anyway!

    Put me to shame. I didn't walk today because the rain was heavy in London. I agree with you, I am much happier since I rejoined SP and started losing. What beautiful photos. emoticon

    I am glad you had a good walk, the photos are lovely.
You have made me think that perhaps I should head out for a walk too, but it is getting dark now - definitely on my agenda for tomorrow!

    Yeah, I didn't mind being in the rain so much when I was out in it but being inside all warm and dry makes you think it is so horrible out there, amazing what refocusing your mind can do. Rain isn't a bad thing since its quite positive really. Lovely pictures you have today! Glad you had a fabulous time out with a friend!

I have been walking a fair amount on my treadmill and outdoors this week. My allergies are improving so I can be outside as long as the wind isn't up. I've been diversifying my exercise regime but walking is still the best way for me to feel cheery and positive about exercise. A good mood booster as well! Yoga, stretching, cardio videos and even strength training add to the positive benefits of life. I need to get back to hiking on my mountain as well. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
