Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...

New month, new challenge. This one is a 50 stomach crunches, 50 squats a day challenge for me and so far so good! I do the crunches once up and dressed usually and then race Isla to see whether I can get through 50 squats before she gets dressed... She's beating me at the moment but only just. I doubt I'll get out of doing the squats for the rest of the month now we're onto this contest.
Which put me in mind of making exercise fun. I ran and walked today with a friend - we covered 3 miles and whilst I might not have gone as fast as by myself (she's just getting started running), it was lovely, sociable and good for my soul. I cycled 10 miles later, and, this time with my dad, I learned about stopping in time for kerbs, the neurobiology of the baby's brain and how it relates to the onset of labour, and that it was even colder when travelling fast on a bike than walking.
Monday I ran 5 miles with a dog, a camera and a smile. Camera in terms of iphone. At times a much needed beat on the iPod (I don't want to make out I'm any kind of sporting miracle - I needed the music to spur me on).
I don't think it matters how or what you do - just get out there and start somewhere. Whether it be walking a friend's dog, heading into town on foot instead of the bus, digging out an old bicycle and cycling round the block or whatever does it for you.
Smile, sweat a bit and enjoy!
