Hello! I am actually alive! Somebody said something to me tonight that brought a smile to my face and made me laugh. So, I thought I'd share it with you.
A few days ago, I went to the local gas/convenience store to pick up some bananas. Whenever I buy bananas it is always at least four or five good sized bunches because all of our kids eat them, plus we use them in protein shakes. So, I was at the counter when this guy behind me who was observing my banana purchase says to me, "You must have some monkeys at home."
I said, "Yes, we have six kids."
Then he goes, "Do you work out at the gym? You must have had your baby, you used to be pregnant. I don't even remember you getting that big!"
I respond, "yes, I had him and he's doing great. He's five months old."
Ok...so fast forward to tonight at the gym. I had just gotten done telling our 16-year-old daughter about this guy who saw me buying five bunches of bananas. Then I look...and there he is in the gym. Tonight.
Then, several minutes later as I'm getting a few dumbbells, he sees me nearby and gives me a little nod of recognition and says... get this...
Yes, he called me banana lady. Nice. It cracked me up.
Well, other than that, I will make it to the gym for a fourth day this week tomorrow. So, that's good. And I still plan on telling you my "tornado/hail run" story. Also, I tried "re-starting" my diet this week, but fell a little short. I did buy a notebook to start counting calories. The good thing in all of this is despite all the stress that has really pushed back some of my fitness goals, I really have pretty much stayed the same weight. I'm still at about a ten pound drop.
Well, I hope you are all doing well!
