Went out for a walk with my new hat 🙈🙊. I’m glad I bought it now😎.We’ve got crazy wind here thanks to hurricane Imogen coming over the Atlantic🌪🌊💨🌧. Still tho, I ended up walking up and down the sand dunes for 40 mins while being blown all over the place ha. It was good fun 😋😁👍🏼
Had cramps this morning so decided to take a personal day, but a long slow walk on the treadmill (it’s too hot outside) was just what I needed. Watched Pitch Perfect 2 and 10kms, 16K steps and 2 hours later, I’m done.
This weekend … Yikes. I mean, I burned a lot of calories on Sat despite not a lot of steps (apparently carrying my 30lb toddler and 20lb bag up and down stairs is a pretty good workout), but Sunday was meh at best. And today my hip and stomach were fighting me, so I walked instead of running. I just feel kind of out of sorts lately.
Old Stump Pond by Dave Curtin Via Flickr: Captured in: Blydenburgh Park, Smithtown, NY.
Seen here is a view from the docks at Old Stump Pond shortly after sunset last night. There was a fantastic array of clouds and colors left behind after a line of severe thunderstorms rolled through.
The pond itself is located in Blydenburgh Park, and is a popular spot locally for boating and fishing (especially for those w/ hip waders). It’s also a great location for hiking, biking, and is very dog friendly – as my lab Bailey would attest.

Sometimes walking away is the only option. Not because you want to make someone miss you, or realize they took you for granted. But because you finally respect yourself enough to know that you deserve better.
