There’s one word that summarizes the difference between our lives in Connecticut and California: outside. We spend a lot more time outside.
The weather this summer has been unreal and (other than a little rain) I can’t imagine winter is much worse!
Late in July we began taking advantage, walking most evenings. We do two miles, give or take, three or four nights a week.
Since anything worth doing is worth doing to obsession, I downloaded Runkeeper to my phone. It logs our trips, offering encouragement to progress.
Tonight we crossed the 50 mile mark, while burning 4,100+ calories along the way. Can either number be trusted? Probably not, but they’re the best we’ve got.
I’d like to say I’m slimmer and feeling stronger, but I’m not. Everything seems the same. There comes a time in life when not feeling worse is the equivalent of feeling better!
