Today I needed to get out and walk. While my husband does physical education with the kids, I walk on the nearby track. Whenever my life seems to be getting filled with drama or things I "have to do" and my shoulders start inching up to my ears, I know it's time to walk.
I put my iPod on and just circle the track, not thinking about anything in particular, except who can I pass and why can't I get that thin again? My music consists of fast beats and inspiring lyrics. A little Mary J. and some LL, throw in some Cyndi Lauper and Beyonce, and I am sweating out my stress. Walking is good.
