…forgot to write my usual “Friday Five” blog post, that is!
Sorry about that! Oh well, you know what I was doing instead? I was getting my glasses adjusted — AND exercising, at (almost) the same time!
See, my glasses get out of kilter very easily, always tilting just a little too much to the right. So every once in a while, I have to get them adjusted.
Usually, after the adjustment, I go out somewhere for a long walk. However, today it was threatening to rain again, and in case you hadn’t heard, we’ve had a LOT of rain here in sunny Southern California over the past week.
So I decided to do my exercising indoors (like I wrote about in a previous post). And today, my indoor walk was at a big box hardware store called Lowe’s!
It was great! I went in the front entrance and walked as far to one side as I could get (in this case, the lumber department). Then I just walked up and down each loonnnggg aisle, up and down, enjoying the relatively empty store (it was only about 9:30 a.m.) and the bouncy music being piped in overhead — for some reason I’m really enjoying the music they play in stores these days!
Before starting, I set the timer on my phone for 30 minutes, and when it went off, I cheered (silently! there were security people around, after all!) — my 30-minute daily walk was done AND I still had a couple of aisles left! Which I went ahead and walked. After that, I left, buying a bottle of diet soda on my way out (so as not to be a COMPLETE mooch!) and went on to enjoy the rest of my day.
Oh, and my glasses? Feelin’ good! I think I can get through another few weeks before my next adjustment slash exercise excuse!
Anyway, sorry for the non-Friday Five-type post, but you know me, I like to shake things up every once in a while! See you Monday for the weigh-in (after which I’m takin’ a road trip, yay!)!
