What Oprah Knows for Sure About Getting Ready for Summer
Sky, mountains, creeks, trees, grass, wild flowers—I can't seem to get enough. So I made a vow this summer to log my 10,000 steps each day and get outdoors to do it.
What a difference! I've been freed from the treadmill (literally) of exercising and released into a whole new experience of enjoying moving. I love to hike!
Love is not a word I'd ever use to describe exercise. But I know for sure: Reaping health benefits while doing something deeply pleasurable is a true thrill. So thrilling that I've now decided to haul out my bike, dust off my helmet, and see how far I can go. I'm ready for the open road.
New experiences. A new way of being in my body. Feeling fit and strong. I'm ready for barbecues and picnics; reading books in my hammock; lemon-berry iced tea and a rocking chair on the front porch, watching the sun set with friends; stargazing while eating s'mores in the backyard. Oh, summer...bring it on!
