There is something about warmer days that makes me wish I was more tan, had long hair, whiter teeth, and a skinnier waistline. I basically go through this cycle every year. In the winter I joyfully put on the weight in cookies and homemade bread —nothing beats a warm roll—and hide it all under my big sweaters and coat. Then the first day of 50 degree weather I regret it all. Suddenly there is no coat to hide under and no tan to make my chubby arms look thinner in my bright Ralph Lauren polo that is tighter than it was the last time I wore it. My new year’s resolution to get fit usually doesn’t start until…April. This year, April 7th. Yesterday was gorgeous. I could tell no-coat weather was upon us. Chris went golfing and I went for a stroll. I don’t run, although I wish I could; I walk…fast. Fast enough that I’m panting, sweating and my legs are like unto jell-o when I’m through. I love it. Yesterday I went for a 5.74 mile walk (you can track your route at mapmyrun.com). Today I walked to school, (that’s 2.19 miles) and I’ll get in some more walking before the day’s over. Unfortunately, walking doesn’t make my hair grow faster, but the more healthy I am—the happier I am being me. I love warm weather, I love walking…and I LOVE that I am two days away from the semester being over.
