Wonderful Walk

I decided to switch things up excercise wise, and go for a walk today, instead of doing Walk Away the Pounds. It was a cool day, but the wind was so fierce, so it required extra layers. Which never FEELS great when you have to walk. Sure, it keeps the bite of the wind from freezing you, but once you start to sweat, it does NOT feel so great anymore. And that is what happened. If I was just strolling outside I would have just been in jeans and used one of my sweater jackets. But I was wearing my shirt, sweater jacket, heavier jacket and scarf, and while that took all of the sting out of the wind, once I started getting warm from excercising it made me sweat more. Yuck.

But it was such a beautiful fall day, I am so glad I went. I took my small Kodak with me. I would have preferred the Nikon, but I was excercising so I took the camera that fits in my jackets' pocket. You could just smell the scents of Fall starting. The trees in my neighborhood are just starting to change colors, there are plain pumpkins out on neighbor's stoops, it is just such a wonderful time of year. It was a day that made me re-appreciate living in New England. There is no place else to experience Fall. Apple Harvest Festival is going on. Katie picked up some Apple Fritters, and they are so delicious!! Sure, I didn't get them warm, which is when they are THE best, but they are still delectable!! I was licking the left over sugar off of my fingers. It IS a good thing I have decided, that the Apple Harvest only lasts 2 weekends, because if these fritters were around all the time, I would gain so much weight as I can't STOP myself from eating them!! I want Kate to pick up some more tommorrow, because once Friday arrives, the entire state shows up to get them, so you wait for hours and if they run out and you have waited 4 hours, you are out of luck!

Anyway, I am going to post the pictures I took on my walk around the neighborhood.

Beautiful pics, glad you were able to get out and take a nice walk - even if it required some extra layers for clothes :)

Pretty pictures!

I'm glad you enjoyed your walk.

I don't walk as much as I'd like to, but I walk enough to know to either make sure layers are easily removable, or go easy on the layers. It might be a bit cold for the first few minutes, but after that you get warm enough from walking to be glad you did that.

Wow - you live in a beautiful neighborhood!

I love walking outside. It always boosts my mood much more than walking on the treadmill does. I don't know why I don't do it more often!

I like walking outside on a cool day. It's still a little too hot here to walk around.

You should take pictures more often. :)

The last half of the year is always when I miss being in NY the most. The first cold snap, the beautiful colors on the trees. There's nothing quite like being in the NE during the autumn.

Haha. The whole state shows up for the apple fritters! They must be epic. I want one right now.

You are so right about New England and the Fall. Picture perfect.

Thaniks for photos! :)

Walk Away The Pounds is such a great workout. I'd love to be able to get out and walk every day, but it's hard enough with two kids. :)
