Janathon my way day 3

Walking at Three Rivers with Scott

I'm doing Janathon my way.  Janathon means running or exercising daily and blogging about it and logging in.

I walk every day.  Sometimes I run. When I say run, I mean a slow jog.

I've walked every day this month (and every day last month, last year etc, with very few exceptions.)

But I don't blog every day and I do NOT need more to do or a larger community of folks, no matter how nice they are.

I'd prefer to choose how to spend my time and who to spend it with.  I want to improve the relationships I already have and perhaps add one or two QUALITY relationships. Not tons of how do you do 3-word response virtual relationships.

So why do Janathon then?  Good question!  It's encouragement for my exercise program.  I guess it's my way of saying, I am exercising daily and will continue to do so.  And maybe write about it.  We'll see.  And I am willing to make new friends, just not the ones who write "WTG!" on everything and nothing else.

You know I'm always good for more than 3 words, HA! Blah blah blah blah blah! I hope I'm one of those QUALITY relationships you're planning to maintain :-)

Hooray for Janathon in an form!

I could do with taking a leave out of your book Mary. I do walk every day with my dogs, however I need to get back into the regime where I am pushing myself more. I have no idea what WTG means. I cannot even remember if these are the letters as your comment box is separate from your blog. It is probably memory exercises I need too.....

@!Hennie--of course you're my quality relationship!!!!!

@John: WTG = Way to go! and at Daily Health challenge, some of my "friends" write that every day. I don't feel very friended by that.

Well, now I'm tempted to write WTG! on this.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I wouldn't mind if you did, but if you posted WTG! on everything I wrote, I would feel unheard.

I believe that was my first WTG ever.

But yeah, I do know what you mean. It's like twitter -- I enjoy seeing little bits of people's lives on twitter but it absolutely cannot replace seeing a real person in real life, taking a nice walk around a lake on a winter day, talking, eating together, laughing, and getting hugs. That kind of time will always be my top priority.

WTG with a great observation, LOL! Me too, me too!!! I love hugs and conversation and scenery and touching and seeing faces and expressions and exploring things in more depth.
