Tonight I wanted some food when I got home from work. There’s an Italian place right near my house that has really good salads. So….I got my car keys and headed toward my car. To drive less than 1/4 of a mile. What the heck?
In the city, I walk all over, without thinking. I will walk 8 blocks for a capuccino; I will walk 6-7 blocks, past several places, for a better salad or Chinese food. But when I am home, I only think about getting in my car and driving to any destination.
So, I found myself in the midst of my bad behavior and put the car keys away. I walked to get my salad. I have to change the way that I think about so many things. I have to think like a non-sedentary person. I have to think like an active person.
Here’s to walking across the street for a salad and patting myself on the back. Haha.
