What I learned today
In an unexpected twist, all these parks are teaching me. This is another busy from end to end day, so in case I didn't get out to walk at lunchtime, I did some stretching and a short SP video before work. However, in planning my day and thinki... Read more
Lead me not into temptation but deliver me from those goodies
#1. There's a pack of donuts in the break room. Self-talk: These are not the last donuts in the world. Don't set my coffee cup down next to them. I've already done my tracking for breakfast, lunch, and snack #1, and there... Read more
Better than expected
That applies to today' total fitness minutes as well as to today's park. I'd already spotted this park as an on the way home option when I just needed to get one in. However, the part you can see from the road isn't all there is to it. I foun... Read more
It's a good thing I'm ahead
I'm looking at my watch and thinking, "Oh good, as soon as I'm done here, I'm going to bed." It's a good thing I'm ahead of my Jan parks goal because it just didn't happen today. I expected it to be on the cool side for Florida, but wasn't dre... Read more
Park within a park - # 38 & 39 and one more!
I'm looking for opportunities everywhere. It's amazing to me how many parks I've spotted along places I frequently travel that I've never paid any attention to. Today's parks were among them. I had lunch with friends and spotted a park less t... Read more
Counting it as #37
I've been busy cleaning today and didn't think I'd get out for a walk. I did, however, have stuff to drop off at a church thrift shop, and while I was there, decided to walk around the back. The back of the church property has a Remembrance Ga... Read more

36. Hammock Park
I did a SP video & some other fitness minutes before work this morning in anticipation of a possibly rainy day. Rain was still offshore after work, so I stopped at Hammock Park on the way home. I walked fast & short to b... Read more

35. Dunedin Youth Guild Park
I ate lunch and went for a short walk in this little park. It has half a dozen young oak trees but not much shade just yet. One of its four picnic tables is under a tree. A little black beetle, an ant, a was... Read more

Quickie Blog, off to Orlando
I'm not expecting to be able to walk in a park today unless there's one near where I'm going. So I've gotten up early and done two SP videos to wake myself up, get going, and get in some fitness minutes before I'm off to Orlando for a meeting.... Read more

What difference does it make?
Since Dec 22, I've been walking daily in as many different parks as possible. So...what differences do I see?
My heart, lungs, and legs are willing to walk faster than the slow stroll of the first week of walks.
I didn't gain anything... Read more
Good but not perfect...or was it?
Today's park was a bit disappointing. Over half of it especially by the gulf was closed and under construction. In addition, I felt sluggish today; my body just didn't want to go very fast. I have a birthday dinner to go to tonight, and that m... Read more
