Friday:) Four Fiery Sunsets From My Walk and 5,000 Steps

Wow! It was a really hot day today. I asked my Google assistant (little round talking thingy) OK, Google, what’s the temperature? She said, ” In McKinney, the temperature is 86 degrees, it with the heat index, it feels like 105 degrees.” Well, that made my decision of not going out for a walk until sunset.

Now, here’s a question for you? Do you ever give yourself these little challenges, like I’m going to do so many push ups or sit ups, or get the kitchen cleaned before watching tv? Little challenges. Well, I couldn’t do a single push up if my life depended on it, but I make other self-challenging goals. I try to get out every evening to take pictures of the sunset, often driving home really fast to get out for my walk. (Like today)

Tonight, as I was making loops around the neighborhood pond, I took a picture after each loop, from the same spot, capturing the stunning setting sunset.

Another challenge I make is trying to walk every night and increase my step count. I have that heart ❤️ thingy on my phone that counts my steps, so tonight when I looked at the count, it was around 3,000. So, I told myself, I’m going to get at least 4,000 before I go home. Now remember, it was still hot out there. I checked after a few more loops and I was almost there. Guess what, I’m going to try 5,000 steps. I sometimes push even a little more. It felt good to accomplish this little goal. 👍🏼

Now, for my last challenge and tradition. YEP! It’s Black Russian Friday.

CHEERS!!!!! Happy Black Russian Friday, my friends.
