As it gets colder (and it's supposed to snow by Wednesday) I'm staying inside. I don't have a treadmill, but I do have a stationary bike.

emoticon So I'll do that probably at least 5 days a week, maybe 6. Depends on how my artificial knees hold up.

Our neighborhood is extremely safe. Our house alarm went off the other day because of a programming error, and we were still in the driveway. We waited there and the police sowed up. As we talked, they said it was very strange for them to get a call into this neighborhood. It.s one of the calmest in the city of Greensboro. We're a very limited almost tic-tac-toe are with no through access, so there's no strange cars floating through here. And I think I mentioned that I'm paranoid about dogs, so that wouldn't have worked for me anyway. But walking around the block has definitely built up my stamina already.

I have my dog with me (not that he would be any help), but I also carry pepper spray with me when I walk.

Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

In addition to crossing the street when you see or hear dogs barking, do you take a stick while walking?

I'm petrified of dogs, and it seems like everyone in the neighborhood has one. The trouble is some of them are behind "invisible fences", but it scare's me anyway as they come right up to the property lines. I'm forever crossing the street to avoid even being that close to them!

Wish I could walk in the neighborhood. I can't even make it down my driveway by myself. It's too steep! Larry has to hold me as we walk across to my friends across the street. And getting back up is not any easier. But I have an exercise bike that I have to start using again, now that the pool is closed.
