Have to walk before anything
November 3, 2015 9:56am CST
I went out first thing and took a walk. It seems if I do not do it early on, it gets cut short or eliminated all together. I wore a pedometer part of yesterday, but not all day. I will have to admit the results were rather dismal. I have already walked more today that I did all day yesterday. It is still not enough. There are some telephone calls I need to make and then I need to get busy. This is a terrific Tuesday. There are a few clouds, but the sun is shining. The weather this year is more like spring summer in this first week of November. How is it for you guys?

@GardenGerty a gray day and very damp. My sciatica was acting up all day and it was difficult getting around with it feeling like a pin was being jabbed in my lower back. Sure hope the sun comes out tomorrow since I have to get to the city.

Don't despair. Everything counts and soon you will see the results of your walking. We've had a very mild November so far, even October was warmer than usual. As much as I love winter, I hope the warm weather holds out until I can get my furnace fixed.

Taking a walk is a pretty good thing and rather conductive to clearing your head. I agree it has to be done early. Thinking about it right now, if I don't take a walk early in the morning, there's going to be something which comes up. There always does. Weather has been pretty decent for a walk the last couple of days, but there's really no excuse when I can walk around inside. Just as long as I keep active and keep moving during those winter months. The weather has been nice since November started so I'm going to enjoy it for as long as I can until it turns around. Hopefully we get at least a good week or two out of it, but clouds are rolling in for this weekend.

I haven't gone out for walks in days, its been raining non stop and there are puddles everywhere. I don't want to risk falling on the road. I have been trying to walk in the house with my phone in my pocket.. I have an app that measures my steps.. I am still walking only 4000 steps perday as opposed to 7-8000 steps I usually do.

Many years ago I needed to do 3 or 4 hours piano practice a day. I had children at school and some piano pupils so I was pretty busy. I used to do most of my practice as soon as the kids left for school, otherwise it just didn't get done. We have a beautiful day here too.
