12 of 12 January 2015

Today was Monday and I was in Hobart for work. The forecast was a mostly sunny day, 15 to 24 degrees.

1 of 12 – One of the new habits I am trying to get into (I’m not calling them resolutions because we all know we don’t stick to New Year’s resolutions – so I’m trying to form new habits) is going for a walk every morning. I fell out of this habit after my massive Walk in Her Shoes effort in March last year, so it’s well past time to get the shoes out and give this another go. Plus my doctor said I had to do it.

Walking2 of 12 – I’ve set myself a target of a 30 minute walk each day. At the moment I can walk for 30 minutes in the mornings, but that might have to change when school goes back. My pace is pretty slow right now, but at least I’m doing it every day. (I didn’t record Saturday because we were at the Tahune AirWalk.)

I bought a tea pot a while ago with the idea of making brews and letting them sit there for a while so I could have a steady supply of the stuff. It makes a nice change from plain water.
