It's one of those stay inside and snuggle kind of days. The sky is gray and it's pouring rain. This is a California winter.
I woke up late and am starting off slow. I have a list of things to do, but may not get around to anything on it. The rain ruined my walking plans, so I'll use the elliptical later today. Walking in the morning has been great! The path we take is about 2.5 miles and it takes us an hour. Next week I plan on alternating jogging and walking. It's easy to go too slow as there are always so many things to look at. The park is a nature reserve and there are several ponds with all kinds of birds. I've made a deal with myself that I will treat myself to a nice massage if I stick with walking at least 5 days a week.
This two weeks off from school has been so nice! I am ready to get back into the routine of school, but this time has been so important for my sanity!

Good stuff! It's wonderful you've been able to keep up the walking. I've been wanting to be outside lately, but it's too stormy.
