Putting some Bend in your Stretch

I've started to notice a few creaks and squeaks when I get out of bed in the wee hours of the morning. Summer is almost here and there is nothing that can get my spirits up more than getting into better shape. I'm a big fan of yoga (which is much harder than it looks, by the way) and pilates (this IS as hard as it looks) for working both your body and your mind. Never in a million years would I have thought that I'd enjoy listening to a teacher, following someone else's moves and working up a sweat. But there you go!

I'm also a big, big walker. I love walking. There is nothing that I love more than getting up at the crack'o'dawn, and grabbing my dog and my daughter and greeting the morning. My daughter and I hold hands, talking, not talking, breathing in nature, listening to the birds waking up with the morning and feeling oxygen cascading into our bodies. Waking up. Aaaahhh. Without my 2 -3 miles a day, I feel it -- in my energy and in my muscles.

Doesn't that make you feel like going for a walk? Not a subliminal message, by any means, but I'd love to know if you end up going for a walk over the weekend.

There is just something about experiencing the day wake up that connects me to nature like nothing else. Thanks for stopping by!
