As I was planning the list of errands I wanted to do today, I thought about how I would often bike ride instead of drive when doing errands but haven’t really done so in a while.
I realized it’s because the weather has gotten colder. And the day’s sunlight has shortened. And well, it’s been raining.
And then I felt like laughing at myself.
Really? Am I that soft that I can’t handle a little adverse weather conditions while on my bike?
I did not want that answer to be yes so I bundled up and hit the streets. My husband came along for the ride and we got all our errands done. In the rain. On our bikes.
At one point, we talked about how exercise shouldn’t only be when it’s convenient. Since biking is one of my favorite forms of exercise, I asked myself if I was going to do it only when it was easy.
A problem I think I have with making exercise a part of my life is that I only do it when I feel like it. When it’s convenient for me. But that’s far from being a healthy habit.
Today was a step in the right direction though. (See the picture above. Me in all my layers.)
While I don’t plan on exercising every single day, I do plan on staying healthy and incorporating it into my week – whether or not it’s convenient.
Make healthy a habit. #makehealthyahabit
