Walking, walking, walking! With so much to see and limited time, I didn't want to miss a thing. I did, of course. Probably a month would be needed to see all the interesting sights, rather than the handful of days I had in the cities of Rome, Florence, and Venice. So I spent very little time in our Airbnbs, and each night went to bed with throbbing legs and aching feet.
But now I'm home, feel better than I have in months, and don't want to revert to a sedentary lifestyle. This will be a challenge as I don't feel rushed to go look at things around my own town. There's no Renaissance art to see here. No ruins. No gorgeous, ornate, old churches in which to sit quietly and reflect a few minutes before heading off to the next attraction. What there is, is 110 degree heat outside my front door, and inside, air conditioning, books to read, and...my computer (on which it's easy to spend hours a day beyond what's needed for work).
The challenge is to find ways to keep moving without needing half-way decent weather (necessary for walks), or paying for a gym membership (that trip wasn't cheap!) Fortunately, I have enough space in our family room to do a little dancing, and if I try scheduling my computer time with more specific allotments for work and other, just maybe I can avoid the slump, and make this new, fit feeling last!
Do you have any ideas of how to keep active when stuck at home? Please share them below!
Blessings to All!
