doggin' it

My daughter rescued a border collie last winter. Our dog keeps me on my toes--active during the day and out for walks in all kinds of weather. She cannot get enough exercise and as a result, neither can I!

Exercise Repetition

I always do a set routine with the same repetitions for a week. The exercises become a habit, My body adjusts to them, I don't forget them for later use and the following week I change up the routine.

Walking to work

I live four blocks from work, but walk there and back via a 31 block route. It works great. Time to think about what I am doing and how things have gone. I have done it long enough that it feels like the way to get there an back.

I need the steps

Whenever something needs to be done or taken somewhere, I volunteer usually calling out the phrase -" I'll do it, I need the steps". The more I move - the more likely I am to continue loosing and keep off what I've lost. emoticon
