Clare is Walking :)

I always think that "not enough time" is a poor excuse for not working out. So I'm not going to say that:). I'm going to need to find a better excuse for why I haven't done hardly anything for literally months now...umm... how about "not enough energy"? Well it's still a bit of a lousy excuse but I think that's as close as I can get to why I've not stayed in any kind of training program for weeks. Truth is I have been completely and 100% focused on getting (and getting started with) a new job and everything else has been put to the side. I have managed to keep up with walking though and do about 10K steps almost every day now which is about double where I was at the beginning of the year. There are so many benefits to walking. It makes vacationing easy when you don't have to worry about tired feet. This is my 'highest steps' day of the year so far in DC - I had a blast :)

And you get to see really cool stuff if you walk at night. Like this massive, amazing wolf spider with her babies on her back...

Or this beautiful yellow rat snake...

And this Mediterranean Gecko :)

Best of all - our family walks are a great chance to catch up with each other and stay connected:)

My family has been so supportive through the transition and now I've been in the role for 30 days I think it's time to get active again. I'm excited :)
