Getting re-acquainted — With my gym closing, I am in transition. Currently I am walking early in the morning (followed by my beloved mocha latte). When I worked I walked very early. I met the guys in the neighborhood walking the family dogs. My timing now is with older women like myself and a few soccer moms trying to get a jump on the day. Its new people and I always enjoy that.
Pacing — My walk is brisk. (I call it brisk, you might call it an amble or a stroll or an easy promenade, maybe even a crawl. It’s my blog so we call it brisk!) I find my heart rate is much higher than when I used the gym equipment. This will serve me well until I figure out the next exercise chapter.
Speaking of neighborhoods – We have a neighborhood website. It’s for newsy things that are happening here or suggestions for contractors. Last week we had a week-long exchange on dog poop. Some folks take their dogs for a walk, pick up the poop and then let the bag on someone else’s lawn. Why go to the trouble of picking it up if you aren’t going to dispose of it properly. People are crazy.
Excitement – I’ve started to turn a spare bedroom into a sewing/project room. I’m pretty excited about it. It’s very sunny and light. Not at all gloomy. I’m hoping I will do some of the sewing projects I’ve had on hold for….well…years.
So how was your week?
