Day 7

Who doesn’t have a love/hate relationship with exercise?  What about the greats:  Tonya Harding, Bruce Jenner, Dorothy Hamill, Veikko Huhtanen? Early in the day I can throw fists to the wind and scream “I hate you exercise, I hate you, leave me be!!”  But when I am done I scream “WOOOOOO, I am so awesome!”  I don’t think I have exercised for four consecutive days since I attempted PX90 a few years ago and that lasted a whole 7 days.  My usual fare is to rationalize to myself that I did it yesterday, so today I deserve a break.  I could have taken a nap after work but knowing I wouldn’t have time to do much this weekend, I went ahead and did it, actually surprising myself that I could do it and enjoy it.  The day before I was unable to do a walk/run and had to walk all the way but this day I was able to run up a few hills with a little more energy than I imagined.

I wore leggings to work and decided to just keep them on while exercising.  Talk about looking like a big marshmallow atop some toothpicks. I shamelessly wore them in public.  Surprisingly they made the walk ALOT more comfortable and breezy.  I won’t do that to the world again anytime soon, however, I will look into better workout gear in the far away future.  Sidenote:  This man who always gets home right about the time I pass his house always ignores me when he pulls in the driveway and gets his mail but in my spandex I noticed he stayed at the mailbox, looked through his mail, smiled and said Hello.  I guess he likes a lady who is all gut and big butt!!!!  I imagine he was thoroughly disheartened to see that wedding band on my finger…..

I do not fear getting older, HOWEVER, I am shocked when I see photos of my 40something year old self. I sometimes don't know what to do with all of this. How to merge the young girl I was with the old bag I am now???? What do you get? A hot mess is what you get. Maybe that is what a mid-life crisis is, trying to merge the old with the now.....
