Exercise plans for today: a few dog walks
Well, today is the worst day ever, for one very simple reason. This is something that affects all of us but is felt very keenly by me, and is going to put a serious hamper on the tone of this blog for at least the next few days. And if you're a regular reader of this blog, I imagine you'll know exactly what the reason is and why I'm so incredibly upset about it.

SO. In place of the step updates, I'm introducing a new feature to the blog for the next few days. Instead of a Total Step Count at the top of the entry, I'm going to end each blog post with an estimated step count, as well as a positive thought related to the government shutdown. You might have heard about that in the news or something. James has been furloughed and we're now in an unpaid holding pattern until government reopens. I could whine and moan about it (and believe me I have), but I'm going to attempt to focus on the few good things about it.
Estimated steps for the day: probably right around 10,000. I skipped my lunchtime run to pick James up after his early out today, but have gotten in several walks and have a long Zoe walk planned later, so I'm most likely coming close to my goal.
Positive shutdown thought for the day: Because James didn't have to get to work as early as normal, I got an extra half an hour of sleep and am feeling well rested.
God bless America.
