Today is an absolutely GORGEOUS day – sunny and warm with a few small clouds. It’s proper spring weather. I love it.
I woke up pretty early this morning (the joys of not having a blind on my window) and decided that I am sick of sitting indoors or staying indoors exercising. Darn it, it’s a beautiful day – I should be outside. I also resolved to get a frigging black-out blind for my window, so I would have to spend some time indoors at the mall BUT …
Instead of taking the subway, I walked. I walked all the way down Yonge Street to College and went to the Eaton Centre. It took me a good hour and a half (I stopped at Bloor and had a muffin at Tim Horton’s and wandered along Bloor for a little bit. It wasn’t an intense walk but it got me moving for that amount of time and enjoying the sunshine at the same time. It was fantastic. I really need to do that more often. It’s great to be in the gym but it’s better for the mind, body and soul to be outside.
Next step: move a strength workout outside. I think I might buy a skipping rope next pay-day and get skipping at the park outside my apartment block.
After feeling so down for the last 3 days and cancelling plans last night (yeah, I know, pathetic!), I finally feel better and lighter today. Although I’m tired now and kinda need a nap BUT I do feel better.
Yay to exercise and sunshine and lightness.
