I want to walk everyday and I am not doing it. It really seems as though I need to get everything prepared for the entire week by Sunday night. Perhaps a new light weight knapsack would get me more into doing the exercise.
It is time for change, time for me to embrace it. Today I bought a second-hand child carrier for my child (she already has a chariot). I plan to get the chariot hooked up to my bike this weekend and spend the next month, rain or shine going around our city via bike power. I am tired of seeing so many vehicles on the roads and I want to feel fit. So, daughter & I will be learning how to 'hoof' it around town -- no exceptions. My partner and I are saving money for an electric bike for him to drive to work (he works out of town).
Thought I should check back to update this. I have walked to and from work almost every day for months now, and it's been great. I truly look forward to going to work in the morning and having some head-clearing, music-listening personal time. Same goes for the end of the work day, when I get a good brisk walk home.
I've lost some weight and feel healthy and energetic - all without having to go to the gym, which I don't care for (unless we could hook gyms up to the electric grid so we could harness that power for the better good). Otherwise, they just feel silly to me.
