Get Moving!

I'm posting this on Amy's Round Robin because we would love for more bloggers to join our Creatively Fit Team! Stop by Amy's Round Robin to see more great ideas!



Today I decided to start walking. I haven't been feeling very motivated to go to the gym lately. There is nothing creative about lifting weights. So I decided to merge physical exercise with a creative exercise. I will be taking my camera with me as I walk my way into shape. I walked from 7:00-8:10 AM this morning and photographed the sunrise, beautiful warm lights and cool shadows.




Every morning (or at least 3-4 mornings a week) I will walk for 45 minutes to 1 hour and try to capture interesting images with my camera. Some days I may focus on a theme like trees or shadows, other day may be more random. I am working on a new blog to document my journey. Would you like to participate in my Creatively Fit blog? My goal is to build a blog team of Creatively Fit walkers. We could share our pictures from our daily walks and record our physical progress. Sound like fun?!

What a GREAT idea!! It's so hard to get motivated to walk in the morning, but having something to look forward to doing while walking is a fantastic idea!!!! And I LOVE the pics you took on your walk!

I've become a gym rat, what can I say?

But that does look like fun. It actually reminded me of the movie Yes, Man. Did you see it? Zooey Deschanel's character leads an exercise group on photo runs. They don't stop to take the pictures, they just shoot while they're running. It looked kind of fun. :-)

I've heard of this idea before! Oh, wait, I think it was on "Yes Man" that one with Zooey Deschaniel and Jim Carrey -- cute movie, btw. I'll be thinking about joining!

Thanks all for stopping by and commenting.
I'm not a big movie goer, I haven't seen the movie. I'll have to rent it.
I would love to have you join me. I'm trying to get motivated this morning. Feeling sore from walking the past two days. I think I over did it. I know, pathetic, I'm so out shape. I better get my butt out there and take some pictures.

It looks like a beautiful walk to take.
