FREE WEIGHTS AND EVENING DRESSES: What’s new in your world? I’ve been working out with author Lucie Smoker and she is a killer on the elliptical trainer! I needed to ramp up my workout and meeting a friend always makes it more fun. You might learn something too. I learned we were going to need a fire extinguisher for my quadriceps. They were on fire. I was used to the treadmill listening to my MP3 player and trying not to hum so the person next to me could hear. Well, that was not what Lucie had in mind. I also learned that she uses free weights and I am used to the Cybex machines. My workout needed reconditioning and it got it. My muscles ache but I’m learning.
Do you know when you put in earplugs so others can’t hear your music, it is considered rude to laugh out loud? Just because the person next to you can’t hear what your laughing at – well, I thought that look was rude! He should listen to the words of Choctaw Bingo (my son loaded the music for me) by James McMurtry and try to keep a straight face. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, look it up and listen. Okie humor! It’s a long way from the classic rock I normally listen to. Finally, Lucie came in and I had someone to talk to so I quit listening to the music. We’ve been meeting almost five mornings a week if our schedules allow. I’ve lost two pounds.
My sister-in-law says she MIGHT meet me at Zumba sometime soon. More about that later.
I have a formal dinner party this week. My husband is being given an award. That prompted a new suit for him and a revamping of evening wear for me. I was pleasantly surprised to find out I could still get into what was hanging in the closet. He hasn’t had, or needed, a new suit for a long time and he looked so handsome in the one he bought. I am looking forward to a formal evening and great food. Speaking of food, did I mention I have lost two pounds?
The Groundhog saw his shadow this week so spring should be just around the corner. Evidently groundhogs are magic and see the future. Do you think he could bring us some rain with the changing seasons? I’m not sure why we rely on rodents for our weather forecasts anyway.
What’s new with you this week?
