It's been hot. Freakishly HOT. It was so warm this past weekend I was down at the beach playing in the sand and water with The Little Miss until after 8pm on both Friday and Saturday nights. Wonderful and glorious times, but if it's THAT warm at the beach that means it's too hot to even wear clothes at my house.
Needless to say with the weather hovering in the 90's at night, I got absolutely NO walking in this weekend which then spirals into bad eating habits. For me, it seems as though if I have the exercise component working, the eating well thing falls, more easily, into place. I guess I figure if I'm going to take the time and put out the effort to pound the pavement and sweat for a few miles, I don't just want to blow it all by eating like crap. Unfortunately, it doesn't work the other way. Eating well doesn't inspire me to go out and exercise.
Today, the heat of Satan weather has taken a turn for the cooler and so it's shaping up to be just another perfect day in this little paradise. I brought my running shoes and walking clothes for my lunch time walk around the neighborhood. According to, my sometime friend and sometime enemy, Pedro, it's a little over 3 miles. Just perfect to fit in as a middle of the day, get out of the office cubicle, escape.
Thank you all, so much, for your thoughtful comments on my post yesterday. I'm not sure what I was expecting to hear about about the whole privacy issue but it's really gotten me thinking about personal choices. There were a couple of you who said they wished they hadn't given out their link to friends and family or put so much personal information out there and others that were more than happy to share everything. Bottom line for me is I'm still going to be cautious. I'm still going to take little baby steps. I sort of equate it to losing my virginity. I figure once I give away information to the Internet universe, there's no taking it back and for me it's better move slowly not to regret my decisions later.
Speaking of losing my virginity, I want to give a special shout out to Tony. He was my first, male commenter.
