Coffee Spilled And The Evolution Of A Day Off

So we have all had it happen. Especially us coffee drinkers, but just about all of us overweight people have had it happen with food too. The spill, the drip, the stain. And of course, that spill, that drip, that stain winds up where? On your shirt, right? Well now, the answer is WRONG! It now ends up on my pants!! I know it is silly to get excited over spilling coffee, but hey, it wound up on my pants!! Not my shirt, my pants! How cool is that?? I doubt that it is, but just in case the points in hidden here, my belly is no longer in the way of my lap, thus, my pants wind up the target in a spill. I find that to be pretty darn neat!

I will tell you the other thing I find fascinating, the evolution of what a day off with no work and no plans means to me now from what it used to mean to me. Previous to the weight loss, when I saw a day with no plans on for it coming down the pike, I would immediately think " ok, good sports watching day, get some movies lined up, spend the morning on the internet, big breakfast, fast food lunch, and prolly some pizza that night". Now, "ok, garage cleaned, weed eat the yard, get some more dog ears to replace the old ones on the privacy fence, see if I can get some more pansies to replace the drowned ones, detail Kathy's car, organize the back deck, clean out the pipe that lets water drain during rain through my drive way ditch, etc." and I get all giddy with anticipation to have work to do all day! I love it. I am also going to go for a distance jog today. I am going to get 4 miles in. I have an iPod now, with plenty of music and much more easy to operate that my old mp3 player. I think it is doable.

What are ya'lls plans for this weekend?

  1. Happy Friday! The best part of your post for me is that as we lose weight and get fit, that sense of pride and "can do" attitude extends into other important areas of our lives. I will be CYCLING this weekend! Have a great weekend!

  2. Enjoy your day! This weekend I'll be attending a bday party with my girls. Working in the yard, mulching, more planting and hopefully a trip to Medieval fair on Sunday. You're right that this new lifestyle is sooooo different. Although I still need my sports and occasional movie. :)
