There's absolutely nothing like an early morning walk. I love the cool, invigorating air; the birds; the sky; and just the way it makes me feel glad to be alive (not to mention the exercise)! Somehow, though, without a walking buddy it's hard to have the discipline to take time for myself like that. I think of all the things I have to do for everyone else, my agenda fills up, and I figure I'll squeeze a walk into my afternoon somewhere...maybe!
Why is it so easy to put off doing something you know is good for yourself? That's the great thing about Alfie: he gives me motivation to get out there first thing in the morning, totally guilt free. Good dog.
