Vanity Has Its Place
If you’ve been there, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Why am I bringing this up now? Or at all? Pick one:
* Because my body is starting to hate me. I mean, hurt me.
* Because I go to conferences with hot young guys who have muscles on their muscles.
* Because I had walking pneumonia for over 2 weeks and lost a grand total of 3 pounds.
* Because Stud worked his ass off and won us a cruise that departs in 2 months - where I’ll be wearing a bathing
suit in front of his coworkers, who are 10 - 20 yrs younger.
Sigh. Vanity never had me running for exercise equipment before, unless it was to grab a piece of laundry draped across it. For some reason that last bullet is hitting home, and I think it’s because I’m not as good as I could be. There’s a difference between trying to hold off aging and being healthy about aging, but the latter isn't going to happen either, if I don't get off my ass.
So as of Monday, I’ve been eating even smarter and dug out the Total Gym. I’ve walked every day. The only thing that hasn’t changed is my morning coffee because that would just be insane.
Wish me luck!
