My Kitchen Timer Goes For a Walk

One of the problems I've had with doing a timed walk each day has been keeping track of the time. If I wear a watch, I check it too often or forget to check it to see if I'm done yet. If I go by the clock in the living room, I'm already home when I see I haven't walked long enough and then I don't feel like going out again.
So today I had an epiphany. I took the new purse I got for Mother's Day, put the kitchen timer in it, set it for 30 minutes, and then walked to Fresh n Easy to get the milk. When I stepped on the lawn on the way to the door, the timer dinged and I knew I was done. This time I didn't take the camera, but I usually do.
