11:22 a.m.

took a walk in the rain

to the neighborhood store

bought a some scratch tickets

and played a some lottery numbers

now wishing myself some luck

10:10 a.m.

went for an earlier walk

shortly after nine

not much shade

damn…I could feel

the sun…and it felt

like being in a

400 degrees oven

so I managed to

cut the distance

as it was too hot

so

as the hot, humid weather is here

it still hasn’t stopped me from

venturing outside and do my walks

I try to stay on the streets with

the most shade

and also try to block my mind

from how bad it is…most

of the time it works

it does keep me in shape

even though the tshirt

is plastered on my back

so…with this weather

I’ll just have to grin

and bare it

5:51 p.m.

evening walk on hold

thunderstorms moving

through

will wait it out

and take one

later on

1:17 p.m.

early afternoon

took an afternoon walk

weather isn’t all

that great

light mist

which wasn’t that bad

1:58 p.m.

the sun did

not disappoint

shining brightly

with lots of

puffy white clouds

with that said

took a walk

on the boardwalk

which runs parallel

with the river

and its never crowded

which is a good thing

and so

took a walk

in the heat

very few people

out and about

came home

dragging my ass

the a/c felt great

now i’m relaxing

knowing my

glucose reading

is excellent

tomorrow will

be hotter

do i dare to

venture out…

i’ll play it by ear

so

taking a walk

in a lightly

falling rain

does the mind

and body a

world of good.

just saying

Ok So

overcast
a tad cool
no rain
good walking weather
which makes
me a happy camper

Tuesday Evening

big improvement in the weather here, so i took a long walk. the air was warm, compare to the las two days, with overcast skies and with the wind coming off the ocean, brings the temperature down, but it didn’t stop me from pounding the bricks.

today’s walk was beneficial, as i cleansed my head, and helps keep my sugar under control. in fact, i decided to take another stroll. now that i’m home, i’ll just kick back and relax and start all over tomorrow.

Its Like This

Walking, which I do several times a day, helps keep me in shape, control my blood sugar levels, and air out my head.

I will pound the sidewalks in most any type of weather, except when its pouring rain, and/or if the snow is coming down to hard.

More Snow

Sunday, we got quite a bit of snow. Tuesday, more snow is on the way. Possible 3-5 inches is on tap. Hopefully, I’ll get a walk or two in, as I do like walking in it, as long as it is not windy and blowing in my face. That makes it a miserable time… well I shall see what tomorrow brings.

That Was Real

Took a walk in earlier in the day. It was quite a slog navigating the snow covered sidewalks, hoping I wouldn’t come across any unexpected ice. Lady luck was with me, as I didn’t have any problems. The walking did wear me out a bit, as when I got back home, I was dragging my ass.

For the rest of the day, will kick back and relax, resume the walking come Monday.

Last Night

When I took one of my evening strolls, I saw less than a half dozen people doing the same thing. As for traffic, that has gone down too. I could practically walk down the middle of what some are the busier streets in my city, and this is before sunset. Eerie! The one good thing about the air, it is cleaner, which makes it more enjoyable to walk in.

Walking Outdoors Is On Hold

Miserable, shitty weather, means I will resort to being the ‘hall monitor,’ thing, and do my walking in the halls and stairways. The plus side of it, is not having to wear a coat, and also get to smell the different aromas of the various meals, that are being concocted. Does it make me hungry, not really, as I do the walking on a full stomach.

better than walking alone in the light.
