Enter afternoon hikes and bike rides and mid-day jogs! I'm fortunate enough to have a schedule that allows me to do these things in the middle of the day. The downside to that is that most people are in work, so I don't always have people to go with. When I'm totally motivated and on track, being alone doesn't stop me from exercising, but when I'm trying to get back on track, like I have been for the last year and a half, it can become an excuse I use frequently.
The other day, however, my friend Becky was free on a Wednesday, and we took the opportunity to go hiking. I also started a new diet bet, so I'm a little more motivated than I have been in a while. Plus, I'm just not a fan of the way I feel when I'm not living the healthy way that I know I love. I don't understand myself sometimes.
It wasn't a long hike, because the sun is setting so early these days, but it did make me want to go more often! I got a couple great pictures on my phone, and I want to spend some time hiking around with my real camera. Time to get in hiking shape! Who wants to go with me?
