It’s about time I got back in the swing of things…

My brother Bruce jbjinco and my cousin, Janis in Australia shadesoffrost are shaming me into getting a blog started again. It’s been over a year!  Maybe longer.  I think once I get going this will become a habit.  Just like my walks.  I used to play racquetball and run 3 or 4 times a week.  I got out of that habit.  Now I am walking.  It was taking the initiative to go on that first walk.  I purchased a good pedometer — had several inexpensive ones that didn’t work or worked for awhile and then quit working, so this time I purchased one I read about in a magazine — it’s an Omron and has software for my computer that keeps track of my steps, my aerobic steps, my calories burned, my fat burned, my distance and my aerobic time.  I set some goals and it’s working! 

I prefer walking in the morning and as the days are getting shorter, this may or may not be possible to get a 45-50 minute walk in the daylight and get to work on time.  Getting off daylight time will help for a little while.  Luckily, I don’t have any set time to be at work.  I have Kiwanis on Thursday’s at 7 a.m. so I don’t walk on Thursdays.  We have a treadmill so I may have to resort to walking on it during the darker winter months.  If I were retired like my sister Nancy, I could walk during the daytime….
