Day 88: Enjoyed the Weather (Went For a Spring Walk)

Most of the time (when I’m not in the woods or on the water), I wonder why I live in Minnesota.

I need more sunshine.

Well today, to celebrate the warmth and the sensation of actually wanting to move (and not lay curled up in bed all day), I took a walk with my friend Spencer.


We walked around a lake, dodging the mad sidewalk rivers from all the melting snow. We chatted, and returned to the apartment with smiles on our faces.


And a pathetic burn in our leg muscles.


Day 39: Went Swimming

So, if you know me, you know I go on “kicks.”

I eat healthy for awhile…and then I give up.

I work out for awhile…and then I give up.

I write regularly for awhile…and I won’t give up (I need to keep going, or I owe $50 to a charity)!

Anyways, this is what I do–err, this is what I did (with piano, guitar, yoga, meditation, etc., etc.).

But, I think that’s because I’ve always bit off more than I could chew, and I didn’t have the motivation and accountability factor before (this blog; all of you).

In January I posted every day to this blog, and now it’s a habit.

In February I’m writing every day (to form a habit).

And in March, I KNOW my goal needs to be health related. 

One thing is for sure, and that is that I’m going to take advantage of my friend Spencer’s pool more often.
