This whole walking thing is really what the doctor ordered. Each day I feel like I can do more.
Yesterday I felt great. My morning walk seemed to take less effort, even though it was hotter. At lunchtime I got antsy and went ahead and walked back to my car, then realized I had a good 40 minutes left…so I drove down to the North Augusta Boat Dock and Fishing Piers to look around.
I was ecstatic as I wandered around the piers snapping photos. It felt like it had been such a long time since I’d really gone on a photo jaunt. Feeling healthy and energetic made me want to do all the things I enjoy and haven’t done lately.
I was having such a good time, in fact, that I recorded–and later uploaded!–a video of myself.
Last night I had to run an errand, so I couldn’t go biking–and it actually started to rain on and off after work anyway. But I still managed to cook dinner, which I ate while watching some Detective Conan. I went to bed on time at 10:30 and woke up this morning naturally at 7 (though my not being able to breathe due to congestion might not be the most “natural” way to awaken).
So far this is going really well. I plan to keep my good habits going into the weekend, though I haven’t decided how yet. Biking, probably. Once I’ve adjusted to doing this I hope to add other things to my schedule that I’ve been meaning to get to, like a couple of web design projects and my Cowboy Bebop game for the AMRN.
It feels so good to be active again, even if it’s only a 15-minute walk here and there. I’ll work up to more in time :)
