Finally I met a friend who wants to go walking! About three weeks ago, we set a date to start with a 20 minute walk, twice a week. We were both excited! We are the same age-ish, same degree of out of shapeness and about the same number of pounds overweight. PERFECT! She works and will stop by before she hits home so she is not tempted to skip.
The first walkie talkie date was RAINED OUT! And it rarely rains in Kihei (average is 9 inches per year!) The second date was also rained out. The third date was 30 mph winds. Same with the fourth date.
Then I had the stomach flu. We decided to join a gym so if we EVER have inclement weather again, we will use the treadmills. She had today off work so we met for lunch at a restaurant she had never been to. It is fabulous food, service and ambiance, Monkeypod. We lingered for two hours!
Next, we headed to the gym! My health insurance contributes to preventative health so it would only cost me $100 a year! When I entered the parking lot, I was a met with barricades and security guards ... it is our monthly outdoor street fair (in a huge parking lot). We promised we would only be 15 minutes and he gave us a break.
FINALLY! We entered The Powerhouse Gym ... only to be told to come back next week. All the managers were away for a wedding. Can we possibly overcome any more roadblocks???
Red wine and potato chips tonight!
