Today was GORGEOUS!
I hadn't planned on blogging today, but I had an awesome day - so I thought I'd share. It was sunny all day and in the mid to upper 60's. I came in & changed into my workout clothes and just stood out on my balcony and felt the sunshine. No way could I take myself into the gym. Absolutely no way! Last week (I was wearing workout clothes and had just come from the gym) I sauntered into a clothing boutique to browse and got into friendly conversation with one of the sales women. She ended up telling me about a beautiful, well kept and safe park only about 1-2 miles from the store (which would be about 2-3 miles from my apartment). I was really excited because today was the perfect day to go take a look! It is GORGEOUS! Well populated but not crowded and has an awesome walking trail. Part of it is by a stream! When I got to the part by the stream - I actually slowed and stared! I wished I had my camera so I could show you how pretty this place is! I walked for about 35 minutes, then did step ups (using the bleachers), tricep dips, squats and lunges. Altogether I worked out for about 45-50 minutes and I was so UN bored! I will definitely be revisiting that park - SOON if weather permits. Another reason to look forward to warm weather!
