This blog is for and about the Webster family. Each of us want to make choices every day that will result in optimal health and fitness. We represent different generations and different places in life - from empty-nesters to young families to students. Our health goals are as varied as we are, but we want to have a common place to post our progress and our challenges. We will be accountable to each other - to provide support, design incentives, share information we come across, and in general cheer each other on and celebrate our steps toward fitness! If anyone happens upon this blog and is inspired to be more fit and healthy that is icing on the cake. So here we go!

Kathy - Photography Class
So, you ask, what does photography class have to do with fitness? Well you see, FL is taking a photography class and one of his assignments is to take an action shot. What this means is that this morning we climbed a hill (exercise), large and small beasts in tow (bliss). When we found a lovely flower-strewn hillside we proceeded to capture the action shot. This involved the Beast, myself and FL. We formed a very large triangle with each of us at a vertex. I had a yummy dog treat in my pocket, my mission was to call the Beast and then go charging off across the field - the beast was to chase after me and FL was to take a picture of the Beast running, using a very slow shutter speed so the background would be blurred but the Beast would be in focus (at least that is the way I understand it works). We did this three times (are you keeping track of the amount of exercise I have achieved already?). I was bit apprehensive that the little beasts would be in the way but my worries proved unfounded. Chubs seems to prefer spectator sports and sat happily beside FL calmly watching the entertainment. Charger was caught up in the action and excitement but couldn't decide which direction to go so ended up dashing aimlessly here and there and generally not bothering anything really. All in all a successful undertaking. We all tromped merrily home and had breakfast. Isn't exercise fun?!!
