My goal for this lovely New Year: walk every single day. Walk a few miles, walk a few blocks. Just walk. Get off the couch and out the door. Say hello to neighbors. Say hello to nature.
Mission accomplished (during my lunch break – an excellent time for a walk, if you ask me!)
When the Husband doesn’t come with me, I’m working on being present during my walks. I’m always tempted to jump on my cell and call a friend. Just appreciating where I am and how I feel (even if I’m sad or mad) is so much more fulfilling and productive. I come back from walks feeling restored. It’s almost better than a giant latte.
Note that I said almost.
PB and jelly snack:
And lunch featured my favorite frozen meal from Trader Joe’s – the Chana Masala. Looks disgusting, tastes amazing. Especially with brown rice and steamed greens.
