Squirrel on a walk

I went on a walk to get some exercise, keep active and help my back to feel less painful.

It was great to see a few squirrels getting fed by a family. I stood from a distance and watched from behind a fence. One of the squirrels came over to me then ran away when someone approached.

I thought that was good of the squirrel to give me a closer look at it. I looked beside myself and noticed some food. “Ahh, it all makes sense,” I thought. That’s what the squirrel wanted.

I picked up the food and moved closer to where the squirrels were and laid the food on the ground. One of them was quite friendly! I enjoyed capturing photos and video clips of them.

I put together a short story and a peek of my book A-Z Fruit or Veg and How They Grow. I hope you like it and feel free to share 🤗

What’s the squirrel eating?

On my walk of 11565 steps, I saw a squirrel scurry up a tree. I immediately started filming. 🎥

I gasped with the thought of what it could be eating.

A few people were also watching on. I asked them if they had worked out what the squirrel was eating…

They had and I looked back over the video and I could see it too.

What is it?

Walking, riding, nature, amateur photography and filming.

I set a goal to walk 10,000 steps a day to get back into shape and posted it publically on social media to be accountable, share my experience, and encourage others.

For ten days, 🏃 I reached around 10,000 – 12,000 steps; taking two and a half hours per day. My ankle was acting up (swelling from a gym injury the year before, weak ankles and probably on reflection, I should of set a lower target.) So I added my bike into the mix to stay active.

Also, this was a great combination because I didn’t want my body to get used to the same exercise; preventing reaching a plateau.

To keep exercise interesting, I added photography and made video clips which is an easy one for me because I enjoy nature and being creative.

I’m loving it and it has evoked raising awareness about my business too. 😁
