I made it out for another morning walk around the ‘hood this morning. Can I get a what-what? I’m really happy about it, though I don’t know that I’m getting the greatest workout walking with my furry companion. That’s okay; he loves it, he gets some exercise too and it’s better than nothing. I’m hoping ankle weights + a couple of steep hills = some calorie burnage. Plus, anytime I get to spend outside this time of year without fear of melting into a puddle of fat and tears is a bonus. Yesterday was even cool enough I started out wearing my favorite article of clothing: my hoodie! Today, not so much, but that’s okay – I know it’ll happen again.
My neighborhood is fairly quiet anyway, but a lot more so at this time of morning. It’s a great time for me to do some peaceful thinking. Here’s a sampling of the random thoughts I had this morning.
I wonder how many calories this is actually burning.
Damn, SOMEBODY’S cooking breakfast; that smells good!
Bacon? It’s gotta be!
Leaving for Florida a week from tomorrow – I wonder if it’s possible to lose twenty pounds by then. Doubtful.
I really some better exercise clothes. Preferrably ones with pockets. Dammit.
Oh, look – there’s Brian leaving for work!
He’s driving too fast.
The only difference between me and all those celebrity women who drop weight so fast after they have a baby is drugs. So where do I get those drugs?
Did that guy really just say, “So, gettin’ a little exercise are ya?” Thanks for the editorial, Captain Obvious.
Okay, it’s a little more humid than it was yesterday. Is it possible to actually *feel* your hair frizzing up?
I wonder if that’s what a shin splint feels like. Probably not.
That house looks like it could possibly be a meth lab. If it ever exploded, would we be safe being three streets away?
I wish I liked to run.
Did this dog seriously just pee on his new leash?
Okay, it’s been 25 minutes; time to start heading home.
Damn, I can STILL smell that bacon.
