I spoke too soon!

Just when I mention how cool this summer has been, we get a heat wave! Today it was 105, tomorrow it's supposed to be 106!

It's 7:13pm, and it's still 100 degrees. So, no walk for me! Me + walking in the heat = rheumatic flare. I'm considering a swim. If I can get myself out there. The heat makes me incredibly tired and I've wanted to sleep all damn day.

How are y'all handling the heat?

Solo Walking...

So, mom is in Canada visiting my sister and her kids, for the next month. That leaves me walking solo. At first, I thought it would be harder to get out and do it on my own. But, I'm doing it, and enjoying it!

Today was a hot one, about 98 degrees. Despite the heat it cooled down nicely around 7pm, like it usually does here. We live just over the mountains from the Pacific Ocean, which is close enough to get the benefit of the evening sea breeze.

It's getting dark around 8:20 now, earlier and earlier each night. That means I'm going to have to get back to walking a little earlier in the day as the seasons change. I'm really looking forward to the Fall, and the coming rainy season here. This Summer has been a lot cooler than usual, but even with that, I'm ready for it to be over!

How do you do it?

Hello, ladies! I'm back, with a question.

I've recently started "working" at a friend's shop three days a week, from 11am-8pm. This leaves me with no evening time to get my walk in. My only option is to do it in the morning before I leave.

Now, those of you who know me well, know that mornings and I do NOT get along. And seeing as I've quit coffee, well, it's even harder for me.

How do you guys do it? Work AND work out???

I feel all off kilter not getting my walk in every. single. day.

I tried a morning walk one day. It was nice. But it required me to be awake and functional and ready to walk by 9am. Ugh. Which means I need to be up around 8:30am to eat something and let my meds kick in so I'm not walking in pain.

So share your secrets, Ladies!! I need some help!
