So, today, Monday, I decided to be more mindful of exercise and physical fitness.
First thing I did at work was to roll my chair away and make use of my customized standing desk. Two boxes were put together and I covered it with quotation images so it’ll look pretty.
Second, I thought of “walking-before-eating” at lunch time. Well, I had to do some fighting over it because I was hungry already but decided to give in to walking instead.
To keep me entertained while walking, I’ve taken photos of everyday Santa Fe to share with you all!
This is heart of downtown Santa Fe for nearly 400 years. The Santa Fe Plaza.
The Plaza or "city-square" is still where tourists gather to relax and enjoy music, art, dance, jewelry offered by Spanish, Native American and Mexican cultures.
It's lunchtime so you'll see a lot lining up for $5.00 chicken or beef fajitas.
The mother church of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, St. Francis Cathedral is also located in the area. I love this church!
There are many historic monuments, restaurants, businesses and art galleries surrounding the plaza.
I was scared the lady might shoo me off, so I went pass her and took photos of what she was selling.
See the yellow cab? It's like tricycle in the Philippines. Only for tourists here!
Every time I'll walk at this space I couldn't help but sing "Through the narrow streets of Paris..."
This is The Lensic, Santa Fe's Performing Art Center. Mymy's class in Grade 8 used this place during their band performance at the end of the school year.
Inside it felt like you've just stepped into a world of old movies and vaudeville entertainment!... and ghosts maybe? Lol.
.. and see the open bus? all for tourists' entertainment too!
Sometimes I feel I need to start running at lunchtime like these two. But, maybe not yet.
I survived my 15 minutes walk! Now I can take my lunch. Yey!
Sometimes it takes conscious effort and mindfulness to appreciate God’s blessings.
Three things I am grateful for today.
First, I thank God for the ability to stand at work although my chair is inviting me to sit.
Second, I thank Dennis for wearing my shorts and for making me realize I need to start taking care of myself! Gotta lose some weight!!!
Lastly, Santa Fe, NM is a beautiful place and I thank God for bringing me here to work and celebrate life!
What are you grateful for today?
