Recommended Posts

As I have been trying to forget  (I know, I whine about this) I work in an office building these days. The office building has long hallways. 

 

Total of 22 minutes of walking spread out throughout the day, most of them during an afternoon break. :)

Took a long loop around town rather than the usual short route for my night walk. Took about 40 minutes, and covered about 3km.

@Rurik Harrgath can tell you first hand of all of the times he caught me walking around our old utility room (it was a good loop) trying to get my steps in. 

 

I can also tell you how hard it is to enjoy your nightly read from bed while your wife madly paces around the house 🤣

 

And, oh yes, I shall be completing the walking mini because I follow her lead haha

Did 5 minutes yesterday and 20 minutes today. It's both empowering and disorienting to realize just how much I enjoy it and how low I had let myself go and be driven by the world around me instead of taking charge.

 

In short: excellent challenge.

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

I got a 26 minute walk in before the rain started!

Today is officially a Rest Day for me, but I opted for the stairs instead of the elevator (3 times down and then back up) and chose to have a "walking meditation" before acupuncture and after a difficult phone call. Ten minutes well spent.

Wasn't feeling well Tuesday, but got out and did a loop around a couple blocks in the pre-dawn cool. 

At work today got outside and circled the building. 

Not a lot of distance, but was still proud of myself for getting outside. 

Should be 10 degrees cooler tomorrow, and another 10 degrees cooler Friday, so hoping to go a bit more.

We are not sinners trespassing in the garden of an angry God.

We are prodigals come home; fully seen and deeply loved.

 

Put together enough small wins over a long enough period of time,

and you’ll find yourself in high level gear fighting dragons before you know it.

I attempted to be more intentional about walking today, and as a result I walked less. This makes no sense to me.

 

15 minutes of walking today.

In spoiler is the Day 1 44 foot snowman I said hello, while I was being slightly judged by teens running to a local high school. 

 

Day 2 was a 30 min walk with bf that was a kind of mini date. 

 

Day 1 & 2 were my days off. Day 3 and 4 are when I have less time. Going to try to hit my goal of 15 mins (or really 5)  for the habit. While from work I already hit 10k steps today....  (my days off I barely hit 4 or 5k...)

 

Edit: was worried about the 30 mins... but reread the map and realized 1 min will be epicly hit with my overwhelmed self
