Walked for 45 minutes

This is the second day in a row.  I really don't like to exercise.  Figured if I can claim a badge for it every time I work out that might motivate me to exercise more.  Let's see if it works! LOL

This morning my walk was, in part, at the nature preserve .  The birds were singing which made the walk more enjoyable.

I went swim with my family. We played beach ball in the water.
