I decided it was time to get it together a little more. Put more emphasis on getting into better shape. I am really tired of the yo-yo effect. Instead of kicking myself for not getting things done the way I should. I could be rewarding myself. The occasional pat on the back so to speak. Be prouder of what I present to the general public.
I don’t like being in the house much. It is not mine and I share it with others. Ergo, I feel the need on many an occasion to get out and go…..somewhere……. This particular afternoon I was hungry and wanted to not only go someplace with a better dietary menu. I wanted to earn it. So, I walked to the local eatery.
I passed by a house that had a pair of apple trees in the front yard. The yard itself didn’t look like anyone there cared about how it looked. I guess that’s why the trees, even though they were baring fruit, seemed to be dying off. The apples all looked bad. Most of them were on the ground.
You want to wonder if it is just because they don’t care. Maybe they are new tenants and just too busy. Could be a combination of all these.
Then my mind jumps into thoughts of all the apple pie, or streusel that won’t be made.
I suppose thinking like that is why I need to walk before and after dinner. i am a bit over weight. Whereas it’s not as bad as it used to be. (I think I may have pointed that out before). It needs to be a lot better. I really need to drop a good fifteen pounds before mid December. I would love to impress the doctor with my weight-loss.
The problem is I have always been a bit of a procrastinator. I’ll tell myself what I need to do, and it may take a day or two before I start. It could take a few minutes.
Take working out for instance. I get home from work and I know I need to start crunches and push-ups. I may actually stat before I change out of my work clothes. I plug a movie into the DVR. Mainly for the noise. I might get in a couple of sets each, and tell myself I will finish later.*…….. Or………..I might get a whole workout in. ** I have thought of joining a gym. For some reason I don’t like the idea of people watching me workout.
You know how some people hate, or are afraid to dance. they have fears of everyone watching them and laughing. For me, I am pretty sure it is not a fear. It is just a bit of shyness. I do think that if I got a membership I would be diligent for at least two to three months.
Of course being the procrastinator I am. It would take me another two to three months to cancel a membership I am no longer using.
*By the time later comes I am so tired. I can’t even stay awake enough to watch T.V. If I am too tired for the boob tube, how am I supposed to workout.
**Unfortunately this does not happen as often as it should.
Question: Does anyone know the dietary benefits, or ramifications of sushi?
