Be sure to take some time out today and write down all that you are thankful for, little or small. There is so darn much to be thankful for… beaches, surfboards, road trips, random adventures, good health and all.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Now go chow down.

I’ve lived somewhere where it’s predominantly sunny my entire life, up until a few months ago. It’s been a little bit of a struggle at times, but I asked some happy, healthy people who have lived in my new location (Seattle) how they deal with it, and keep their sanity. Their answer: Just get outside, even if it’s cold and grey.

One of the easiest ways to burn more calories and be healthier, is by choosing to use your own two feet and walk. Elevators, cars, and escalators, although quite convenient, steal the calorie burning potential that walking so easily provides. Ahhh, the nerve of technology.

If you can walk somewhere instead of driving, do it. If there is a beach, park, lake or trail nearby, go for a quick walk. If you can take the stairs, do it. If an escalator is broken and temporarily stairs, count it a blessing. I am that gal in the airport always taking the stairs with my carry on, that gal who suggests walking to lunch, and that gal who goes for a walk on the beach any chance she gets, rain or shine. And I have no shame in admitting it.

So the question is…where are you walking today?

Running in the rain is one of my favorite past times. It really is like exercise, therapy, and a shower, all balled up into one refreshing amazing experience. Actually, if you think about it, running in less than ideal conditions has a bit of a Rocky-Balboa-I’m-hardcore element to it, and it’s an ultimate stress reliever. Some of my favorite runs were done in a deluge (yes, an ipod died), late at night or early in the morning before the sun came up (on well lit streets), in the snow (even though I didn’t go fast), or my favorite…barefoot, while it’s drizzling and foggy on the beach (thank you Cannon Beach).
