(flash went off in the second one so thats why they look different)
The main focus of my health and fitness class has been... well. Health and fitness. xD For the past couple lessons I've been reading about obesity and how its become such an epidemic. That seems to be such a popular word. anyways, I'd been meaning to start "jogging" again anyways and I saw this quote on the page and I had a "woah" moment, lol, and it made me stop and think. Two reasons.
1. Thats always my excuse. I don't have time. I think that's everyone's excuse. Everyones so "busy" theres just no time for anything. 2. If you just let yourself go, obesity slices off years of your life. You have less time. Why would you want that?
So that was kinda my push out the door I guess. That and its warming up xD it'll be nicer but also the whole shorts and swim suits thing, lol So i try to get up around 7ish, change and take my dog out with me. My goal is at least half an hour a day. So Im always home by 8am. Then its like I never even lost any time at all. Easy peasy. :] I do a lot of walking xD I dont know how people can jog constantly, but maybe I'm just a wimp. but still. I didn't flinch at the 30 on the thermometer :P I think thats saying something, lol. And I was reading that its recommended to exercise 3-5 days a week at least so I don't feel bad about taking weekends off or if it rains :]
So, its really not that hard... even if you start out taking ten minute walks around the block. It doesnt have to be dramatic, just a gradual change, and slowly add on to it while your body is adjusting. People just need the right motivation I think.
Sorry, this wasn't supposed to be this long xD But its just something thats been on my mind lately.
My name is Emily and I'm 18 years old. I live near Cleveland Ohio and I love photography. :] I've been taking pictures as a hobby since I was 11 or 12. I started out with my mom's old point and shoot Canon, and now I currently use my own Nikon D40, with either my 15-55 mm or 55-200mm lens.
I like all kinds of photography and I try to broaden my horizons and do different things. I'm hoping to go to a photography school and be a photographer professionally when I'm older.
I both appreciate and need comments and critique. I want to learn and grow as a photographer so if you have any help or suggestions you can offer me, please feel free to do so :]
