Since our oldest daughter is getting married in October, I only have so many months to try to lose some of my belly Buda weight.
My belly (or Buddha as I call it) became even more noticeable to me this past weekend when I realized that I was using it to prop records against it at a music store. Even worse, I found myself resting my coffee mug on my Buddha while watching the Sunday morning news. Am I becoming that guy?
Last night I FINALLY suited up in my running clothes and shoes (that I bought last December) and decided it was time to hit the pavement for a good little run.
I started off with a jog (I wasn’t really going to run, that shit hurts) and I made it a couple block…before deciding it was time to take a break and walk about half a block before starting up again. I then made it three more blocks and took another walking break before jogging another two blocks and reaching my “away from home” goal. Did I mention it was uphill…slightly!
The jog back home wasn’t as bad since it was downhill and I was starting to get lose, but my lungs and legs were totally out of shape and pissed off at me. I know I could’ve gone farther if I just could have kept breathing! But I was glad to have done what I did anyway.
Now, back to my coffee and cookies. I have a BIG day ahead of me!
