Summer Resolution: Getting Daily Outdoor Exercise

Megan‘s post with her Summer To Do List has inspired me to make a Summer Resolution of my own.

Without going into why, I have had a year where I have been more alive then ever, traveling the world, and a year where I have completely hermitted, hiding from life.  After finally landing back in Vancouver, I have been finding it difficult to kick the habit of hermitting when not traveling. Oh I have had my list of excuses, including exhaustion, a concussion, food poisoning, and a ridiculously long ‘to do list’, but I have got to stop ignoring my personal life.

Self realization is a healthy thing and I am proud to say I recognized I had to give all this hermitting the boot. The last two week I have been doing just that ~ attending events again, finally letting people know I was back in town, and being sure to eat healthily.  What I still had been neglecting was my old routine of fresh air and exercise, and it was taking it’s toll on my stamina and psyche, so this afternoon I decided enough was enough and strapped on the roller blades.

 

Day 1 ~ Roller Blading

 

Amazing how much better I feel after a bit of exercise, fresh air and sunshine.  Now to keep this up, and promise myself to be sure to take a bit physical, fresh air ‘me’ time each day.  To help stay on task, I promise you all an instagram photo-a-day (to EmmeRogers) of my escapades.

Cheer me on, if you see me start to dawdle.

Kisses,

Emme xoxo

    1. Haha, Lucky you! I’ve never been able to roller blade. Even when I was a child, my mother tied a pillow to my behind because I kept falling on it and hurting myself. To this day, I still can’t roller blade without falling on my behind.

    2. Ha. I almost laughed out loud. I have found myself in a hermit stage right now, having to force myself out on a daily basis. Best of luck with the resolution.

    3. I wish I could be dedicated like I once was to get outside. Living in 90+ degree weather in Mississippi, there’s always an excuse. I need to dump those excuses and get active again.
