I rolled out of bed this morning one of the grouchiest people in 10 counties. There was absolutely no way I wanted to get up, much less go for a walk. But there is a challenge to be met. Our wonderful ladies group issued a challenge to exercise 30 minutes each day for the next 100 days. Why 100 days? I promise this isn't just any old 100 day challenge chosen simply because 100 seems like a good number. These 100 days has serious meaning...to many, many people.
So there you have it - the sole reason I dragged myself out of bed this particular morning. By the way, the morning felt like the middle of the night. I didn't realize how dark it still is at 5 a.m.
The crescent moon was actually quite beautiful. There were wispy clouds that gave it a ghostly appearance without obscuring the view of millions of stars. Unfortunately, the camera on my phone doesn't quite see it the same way. Trust me it was beautiful.
I am now trying to decide if I need to make a nerdy little countdown poster that I can put stickers on every time I do 30 minutes of exercise. Who am I kidding? I am sure there will be a poster in the next day or so. Who doesn't love a good job sticker?
