September 19 – Thursday – Dilemma

The ex calls me at work today, freaking out, as he says, because he’s filling out his Social Security forms. Yes, he’s turning 62 at the end of the month, and of course now I’m freaking out. Seems like not too long ago we were the best bodies on the beach, and we weren’t even trying (we did wander off to a more remote and less densely populated section of the beach, so we didn’t have that much competition, not that we were competing, mind you). And now, we’re just a couple of fat old farts, and one of us is ready for Social Security.

But that is not the dilemma.

I am ready to hop from the B’s to the C’s. I go to pull the next album and it is George Carlin. How can I exercise to a comedy album? I wrestle with whether to skip Carlin or not. And just when I came to the conclusion that I would need to stick to the A-Z rules of the project and exercise to comedy, I remembered that I have a number of albums not included in the alphabetical line up. Peter Pan, Shirley Temple, old stuff like that including the cast albums of Broadway shows. So, if I am truly sticking to the project, I will next be working out to Camelot, and then George Carlin.

And so, since I am still sick when I reached this conundrum, and figured my journaling of the project would definitely make a nice little blog, I decided to put the project on hold until I got all my notebook journaling typed up for the blog, and learn how to go about blogging in the first place. I’m a notebook kind of gal. Got tons of them. And as I have been inching myself into the 21st century, the whole blogging thing kind of scares me. Mostly the technology. It’s a hump – a big hump, but once I get over it I envision smooth sailing.

Do not despair or lose faith. As I break to regroup, I am still working out. Ram is like hanging out with an old friend. A good old friend. I’ve cut the workouts down to 3-4 times a week instead of 5-6 and am eating what I want (what a hardship), so I don’t get too ahead of myself and of the project. There has already been some positive progress like the squatting thing and a reemergence of agility, plus a slight belly tightening, so the project is working.
