Boomer’s Observations “Taking A Walk”

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?

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
