Exercise is a crucial part of life. Especially if you are like me and eat the goodies you blog about a few times a week. Even though I try to add fruit and vegetables to the mix, there is added fat and sugar that I normally wouldn’t have. Exercise boosts energy, promotes good sleeping habits, improves mood, and maintains weight. It’s recommended that you get thirty minutes of exercise a day depending on your lifestyle.
My exercise of choice lately is running. I have my husband wake me up a half hour before he leaves for work. I run a loop around our neighborhood that is about 2 miles, which takes me 20 minutes (there are hills!) I stumble out of bed, shuffle to my bureau and grab some running gear. This morning I pulled out a shirt I’ve had since high school. It’s the one I’m wearing in this picture. I’m the one kneeling on the far right. The Peer Outreach group took a field trip to the state capital and met the governor at the time, Jean Shaheen. Thank you God for pictures. They capture a moment in time that we might otherwise forget. The front of the shirt says SMOKE FREE New Hampshire and the back, Join the Smoke Free Crowd.
I run in the morning before breakfast, before coffee, before I’m really even awake yet! I get to see the sunshine peaking through the morning clouds, I hear the birds chirping, and inhale the crisp air. This morning I saw two rabbits. Yesterday, a family of raccoons. Last week, a deer.
What is your exercise of choice?
