Soon…very soon, GrannyK will be going on an adventure! I’ve only gone down this path one other time in my life, and I had hoped to not do it again, but it looks like it will be necessary. This adventure doesn’t require any mode of transportation. I can do it at any location. It’s one that I dread, but must be done.
I hate to use nasty four letter words, and I hope you will forgive me, but the adventure I am soon to take is..
Yes, I said it and I mean it. It’s time.
I can barely breath when I bend over to tie my shoes. I can get on the floor easily enough when I play with the kids, but getting back up is a sight worthy of taping and sending to America’s Funniest Videos. I’m starting to huff and puff when I play tag with the kids. That wouldn’t be so bad if the game goes on for a while, but 30 seconds into it I’m gasping for air.
You see, even though my job requires me to be up and going a lot, it’s not really that much exercise. Now that the rainy and cold season is upon us, our outside time has been very limited. My life has been very busy running my brother to doctors and hospitals, but I’m mostly sitting. There is also one major factor that has contributed to about five pounds of weight gain recently. One item that has me totally under its spell. I can’t stay away from it! That item is..
Oh my goodness! They make gingerbread and sugar cookie ones now for the holiday season! For some reason, I decided it was my obligation to devour every box they produce. They are so delightful!
But, all good things must come to an end. I am going to say goodbye to my poptarts and lose twenty pounds by summer.
This will start right after Christmas.
Or whenever they don’t make the special poptarts.
But soon! Very soon!
I will torture you with the details as it happens.
