|River trail by my office.|
Last September I started on a plan to work my way up to 10,000 steps a day (about 5 miles). I started at 5500 steps/day and added 500 steps a week. At first I could get there just by parking a bit further away at work and the daily workout at the gym. Then I added a daily walk during my lunch hour. I kept coming up short on the weekends and needed to do something a bit more than going to the gym Saturday mornings. So I started going on long walks around my neighborhood. I kind of hated them at first. It took so long and I could think of lots of things I'd rather be doing. But I kept at it. (Btw, I am now surpassing 10,000 steps almost every day!)

One Sunday morning I was out braving the cold. It had just snowed like mad so I took a photo mostly to pat myself on the back for being out there (see above). But it turned out pretty cool and I thought that would be a good little challenge: take one interesting photo per Sunday walk with my phone. The walks became a lot more exciting after that. I spent the time scoping out what I would use for my one photo. The idea has eventually expanded to my lunchtime walks and the newly added Saturday walks. I love it. I look forward to my daily walks, which amazes me because they were such a chore at first.
|This walk prompted me to get some decent boots.|
|Even going to California for the holidays did not stop the walks. Spring Lake flooding.|
|More Spring Lake.|

|No longer phased going out into this for a walk. I've got some awesome boots.|
|Got myself an Olloclip. I love the Macro Lens.|
|Yesterday I ventured beyond the neighborhood for the first time. Rock Canyon, Provo.|
So that was a long-winded ramble to basically say: enjoy these photos I take on my daily walks. :) Oh, and apologies for the occasional cat photo that pops up. But hey, that's what the internet is for, right?
