We finally made it to the gym today, after an absence of many months. I think the reason it is so hard for so many people to get into a regular exercise routine (including me) is that we feel like idiots when five minutes ambling on the treadmill leaves us breathless. Assuming I don’t wind up in a body cast because of aching muscles, we’ll go again on Wednesday.
Before I can dive back into my WIP, I have to do some insurance things for my parents. Helping them through these changes is a real eye-opener. That is part of why I finally dragged my sorry butt to the gym. I also need to nail down travel plans for next month’s road trip. Two high schools which had invited me to speak had to back out because of funding problems. But now it looks like some other schools are interested, so the impact on the family budget should be minimal.
The trees are turning color up here. When you drive down the country roads to our house, you can smell the apples in the air.
