Dum dum da dum…
It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving and I have…news to report. Can’t quite call it good or bad news. More like smack dab in the middle news.
The week before the holiday I sent out an SOS of sorts to my neighbor friend to buddy up with me on exercising. She jumped at the offer. Within minutes of my text, she responded with, “Sure, do you want to start tomorrow?”
No, I thought to myself, but I texted back. “Sure!”
We’ve been on it ever since. That first day we did 20 mins of Tae Bo with Billy Blanks. Whew! Hadn’t done that in about 15 yrs. But I had to make it through. Couldn’t let my neighbor, who is at least 10 years my senior show me up.
For the rest of that week we walked a lap around our apartment complex and increased it to two laps the next week.
According to my analog scale, I dropped 1-2 lbs. That’s the good news!
Then came the holiday: dressing, crescent rolls, and the cake. Really, it was the cake that did me in.
The Saturday after the holiday I decided to check out the damage. If not for the walking that I did with my neighbor over that weekend, I would have surely gained more than the few pounds that I’d lost the previous week.
That’s the bad news. I’m right back to where I started two weeks ago.
Could be worse, though. Right?
What’s awesome is that today is Monday–me and my neighbor’s regular walking day. I’m looking forward to walking those 2 laps (maybe 3) around the complex.
What’s even BETTER??? There’s no more cake!
