I woke up before the alarm today. Guess I am not adjusted to the time change yet. I fell asleep on the couch last night watching Iron Chef America on the Food Network. Woke up at 10:30 and checked in on Maw Pye, and went to bed. I woke up this morning at 4:15 and decided to stay in bed and will myself back to sleep, but it didn't work. so I got up at 4:45 had a cup of tea, dressed and went for my walk. I added a quarter mile yesterday, I hope to add another in a couple of weeks. My goal is to continue to add until I reach 5 miles per day. I am currently walking 1 1/4 miles each day when the weather permits.
We have been having really nice chilly mornings here for the last few days, it has been such a pleasant change from the high humidity and upper 80's that we had been having. This is my favorite time of year in South Louisiana, when it is cool enough to turn off the A/C and open up the house to air out. Nice cool dry air breezing through the house.....mmmmmmmmmm life just don't get better than that.
I just finished mopping so I thought I would sit and write a blog, what better way to take a break and give my back a rest. Though, my conscience is telling me to get my strength training exercises done. But, my back says it needs the rest. I decided the back wins out this time. LOL Good excuse don't you think?
