I didn't walk yesterday because of the ice. But now that we have Fios television, I did a couple of the exercise programs that were on the Fit Network, though I did miss walking. The exercise DVD that I usually do, I've had for years so now I'll be able to do different ones on television.
I went walking this morning, but it was a bit haphazard because a lot of the sidewalks still have ice on them. So I would walk until I came to ice and then turn around and go another way. I managed to walk 6.4 miles like that.I walked down streets, around apartment buildings, and some paths. I turned around when
I got to this ice and snow covered foot bridge.
It was unusual that I didn't see ANYBODY out walking or running, not even some one walking their dog!! It was dark and cold when I started out. After sunrise it was cloudy with a few peaks of the sun.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Later on in the morning I walked down to church to drop something off and then walked to the Giant to pick up a few things. It was still icy in places but it got a bit warmer as the day went on and there was more melting of the ice and snow.
Did a few things around the house and then knitted. I finished Preemie Hat number 4. This one is a little bit bigger because the yarn is a bit thicker. I still used number 2 needles.Then I knitted some more on the scarf. What a difference going from size 2 needles to size 9!
Got some reading in too and now I'm writing this. Ken is due home from work soon.
I hope you had a happy start to the week and this Monday finds you smiling.
A vigorous five mile walk will do more good
for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult
than all the medicine and psychology in the world.
