Company is coming.
The man's Uncle D is coming to visit.
I've never met the man before, but I've heard stories.
Lots of stories.
He will visit us in the morning here at our home.
With all the other relatives local in tow.
Guess what I'll be doing the next few days?
I was over at Blogging Incognito
a few weeks back.
Secret agent woman decided to make a few lifestyle
changes that involve eating healthy and getting exercise.
As you know, I did that a few years back...
and lost a considerable amount of weight.
I made other changes too, which led me to be here in this home.
All good choices... something I don't always do.
I was inspired by her post.
In the last year I have been a back slider of sorts.
Busy with job hunting and starting life with the man...
I stopped walking daily.
Too many barbecues and pot lucks later...
I've regained a few pounds.
So last night I announced to the man...
tomorrow you will take me out for a hot fudge sundae...
and on Friday, I will start my health program again.
He asked me where this comes from...
did he give me something I misread as dissatisfaction?
The whole point of my walking and changing my eating habits was to get healthy.
Not to get skinny or please anyone but myself.
He was a happy accident along the way.
Sorry babe... its not for you.
I told him that the only thing about it that concerned him...
was that I intend to be here a very long time...
so don't plan on cashing in on my life insurance anytime soon.
He laughed and said I was prize enough.
I said yeah... booby prize.
He said... well, I happen to like boobies.
That was not what I meant...
but I laughed anyway.
Which led to another thing...
his offer to help me with ah... exercise.
I pointed out that was not walking.
He pointed out that it was a lot more fun.
There's more than one way to clean up.
I think I'm hitting them all.
Cleaning up my health.
Cleaning up my home.
And cleaning up in healthy relationship.
Okay... time to clean and LATER a hot fudge sundae...
followed by some healthy exercise.
I love clean living!
