I don’t enjoy the word ‘exercise’.
It just sounds like zero fun to me.
There is an older gentleman that strolls by my house. He uses a cane, or walking stick, and just strolls down the road. One morning he noticed me in the yard, and stopped to chat for a bit.
He told me about all the weight he has lost. He felt better since he began walking but he walks at a slower pace now because he doesn’t want to lose anymore weight. He must walk less frequently as well because I haven’t seen him recently.

In Julia Cameron’s books, she recommends walking twice a week. She doesn’t indicate for exercise, she suggests it to clear the mind and become inspired.
I’ve began to stroll my neighborhood.
When you think of it as a stroll instead of exercise, it takes away all excuses. I don’t need fancy running pants, or shoes. When the mood strikes, I grab a jacket or scarf and walk out the front door.
My daughter smiled at me for walking out with my reading glasses still resting on top of my head.

As I was typing this, I saw a reflection move across the laptop screen. It was that gentleman walking by.
Be inspired my lovelies and take a stroll.
