"Move it!"

Chelsea and I heading out for a walk on Christmas day
While this may be a quiet work week for many people, I have been quite busy.  I am training to cover someone while they will be out of the office for two months and assisting someone whose assistant is out this week and dealing with my normal stuff.  When I left this afternoon, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed.  I felt like heading to the Y, but when Doug mentioned a walk with Chelsea, I joined in. 
All I did was change into some flat suede boots.  I had on navy chinos, a thin long sleeve t, and a cotton cable v-neck.  Then I wore the coat I have on in the above pic, gloves and pulled a fleece neck warmer over my head, under the hood of the coat.  It was thirty degrees, and even with gloves, my hands were cold. 
I struck out at a pace that Doug told Chelsea was faster than he could run.  I was ready to move and burn off some tension! For some reason I got a wild hair and decide to jog a bit.  I certainly wasn't dressed for it and didn't have on a sports bra.  The girls bounced along singing "Oh what fun it is to ride..."  well, not quite, but you get the picture.  In no time at all, my hands were warm enough to pull off my gloves.  My hair was wet as was other bodily parts and clothing. 
As I write, I sit, fresh from the shower in pajamas, in front of the fire.  

In all we walked/jogged for an hour.
It felt so good to get out and move.
Chelsea thought so, too.

It really does help, doesn't it?
Now you've got the kinks out, and ready to relax. What better way than jammies, fire and dog at side?

Ha - Cheryl, you rock!! Seriously, this is awesome. I love that feeling (sadly one I haven't gotten in awhile) when the urge to MOVE just overtakes everything else.

LOVE it! Enjoy that fire!
