I can’t tell you how much $$ I’ve spent on gym memberships. I hated every minute I spent in them after being cooped up in an office for 8-10 hours. I am grateful that I can now walk or hike whenever and wherever I want in order to strengthen my body, mind and spirit. This is my little piece of Paradise where I walk for two miles, listen to music, Hay House Radio or just meditate on the beauty of the setting. The Peace River – how appropriate.
For me there is something cathartic about walking near the water; the sound, the motion, the smell. This is just one of many paths I enjoy along the Peace River. I know how lucky I am to live in a climate where I can exercise outdoors almost year round. When we visit our cottage in Michigan I attempt to exercise outside — hiking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. Last Christmas I tried walking from our cottage to Lake Huron, about 100 yards, and almost wheezed up my brittle frozen sinuses and lungs – oops, it was minus 11 degrees, dumb Florida girl. So, how many calories are burned from shivering?
