At the end of May I started getting exercise. Not just “more” exercise but “some” exercise! For the last several years I’ve been really good at holding my computer chair in place. All that that has accomplished is to make me severely out of shape and unhealthy.
I began with water aerobics for an hour and within a week I added walking for a half hour. I’m now walking about 1.7 miles a day and I hope to increase it to 2.5 by the end of July. Being very obese, walking isn’t very easy or enjoyable.
In order to make walking a little more palatable, I challenge myself to find one interesting or beautiful picture. Sometimes I find several in one day. Sometimes I find weird things that I doubt anyone else would be interested in.
