I am still digging through the last of my Autumn photos, but they are really looking too summerish for November. I walked in the cold wind today and was not really dressed warm enough. I thought I would turn back and put on a heavier jacket, but then decided to just buckle down and walked at a very brisk pace. Soon I was over-heating and my jacket was flung open to let the heat escape.
I dare not miss a day of walking my minimum 5K or I begin to feel sluggish and lose my desire to walk again the next day. It is surely getting to the stage with the weather where it would be much easier to sit and enjoy a second cup of coffee on the mornings that I do not work. It would be a slow death.
As we think about downsizing, we are realising that a condo or townhouse with exercise facilities is going to be a must. My own father was blessed with great genetics but we saw him deteriorate due to lack of activity more the usual ravages of old age. I am a fairly disciplined person and also one who is a creature of habit. Getting into the habit of a bit of a workout everyday is a must for general health, but also achieves the goal of having a feeling of well being and creates energy for other tasks. Photography has been an impetus to get me out and about, but come winter, something else will have to motivate me.
