Fitbit Dates at the Botanical GardensTuesday, March 08, 2016
I've come to the conclusion that no one should start a New Years' resolution before the month of March. You're just setting yourself up for failure otherwise. Why do we kid ourselves into thinking that the coldest, darkest months of the year are the best time to jump out of bed early and start exercising? Now that there's a strong hint of spring in the air, it's so much easier to get myself moving. It's not just about the exercising anymore, it's about breathing in as much warm air and sunshine as possible. By the time that Mark gets home from work, I'm usually standing at the door begging to go on a walk somewhere. (That just made me sound like the pet dog, didn't it?) When there's precious hours of daylight after work, you've got to take advantage of them! Anyway, we've been going to the botanical gardens fairly frequently lately and it's so much better (and much prettier) than walking in circles around a track at the park. Here are a few photos I snapped at our last visit. I can't wait to get back there this spring when there's some more greenery down there!
