Today's walk turned into an interesting adventure...
I went to the gym in the morning with my trainer. Unfortunately, I found out that he had to cancel when I got there. But I figured since I was there I would exercise. I did 30 minutes on the bike and 25 minutes on the weights. I figured I would go for a walk this evening to get my 10,000 steps in. When I drove to the park this afternoon, there were about 6 school buses there are there was yellow tape all over the place. I started to walk, then I saw 10 teenage boys running towards me and realized that they were doing cross country races at the park! So I left there. I was trying to figure out where I could go and thought I'd check out a different park. It's kinda sketchy, but it was light out. The other park was sketchy. There were lots of homeless people there as I was starting to walk. But there were also lots of geese.
I was amazed by the geese. I saw them up close enough to humans to eat out of their hands. They looked fat and happy!
I realized as I started walking that there is a man-made park in the middle of this park, which is cool. As I was walking around there were some good views. People were fishing though I wouldn't eat anything caught in it. As I was walking and got to the north side of the lake, the park completely changed. It was much nicer and there were kids, the ice cream truck, and lots of people just chilling.

I wanted to get in 10,00 steps today, but I hit about 8,000 and it was getting dark, so I headed home. Now I know which side of that other park to walk around, should I have the need to do so. I hope my regular park is back to normal tomorrow!
1) Do discussion board for Human Relations.
2) Do the weekly assignment for Import/Export.
3) Continue doing battle with the laundry. It just never ends!
Today I'm Grateful For...
1) Geese. Aren't they pretty?
2) That I was able to find an alternative place to walk.
3) That I have so many leftovers in my fridge I don't need to cook for the rest of the week!
