Walking in the rain

Friday, March 29, 2019

During the winter months, I pretty much stayed inside. I didn't do much as I wanted to remain around the house. I am care taker for both of my parents, so in case my dad falls or something, I need to be around.

But now that Spring is here. Yesterday, or I should say, for awhile my legs or body just wanted to move. Outside. I did do walking in the house around the basement during the winter months when I felt like it, but yesterday I got out and walked.

When I get up in the morning I go out and pick up the our paper then go across the street to our neighbor and put his paper on his porch. He is elderly and has a hard time picking thing up off the ground.
Anyway, yesterday I started walking around the block right after I pick up the papers. I felt good. The weather was nice. And it wasn't busy because of spring break. Well, today I made myself do the same thing. The only difference was it is raining and cold outside. I should say more like drizzling rain. But I put a coat and hat on and walked anyway. Normally I like to stay warm and dry. But I liked the way I felt after walking outside and so I am going to make it a habit. Now I need to try and stay on it and not talk myself out of it. I did it in good weather and rainy, so I know I can do it.

Also in new in my exercise routine, I'm trying planks again. I need to work on my core. UG! emoticon emoticon
