Mistake Remedied

I made a mistake about four years ago. Julie was off work for the summer and I had many enjoyable plans but not enough time. I decided to work eight hours straight so I could get home as soon as possible. I had been going to the weight room at the University for about five years and felt good. The summer progressed and I didn't take time to lift weights so I decided to cancel the membership at the recreation center. That was a bad mistake.

Lately I've watched myself decline and decided I had to do something. Last week I started another membership and lifted weights three days. It felt unbelievably fantastic the first day. The second day was better and the third was even better. I was surprised to learn I hadn't lost as much strength as I suspected.

For the last few years Julie and I have discussed building an exercise room as part of a work building that I hope to construct next year. Until that happens I plan on keeping the recreation center membership.


Geraniums in the sun room. I took this photo last week. I think we started with two or three. Julie likes to prune and I enjoy rooting what she prunes. This photo has nothing to do with the subject of this post. I simply like the geraniums and wanted to use the photo.

Perhaps the work and hiking you do mitigated the loss of the routine workouts. If so, that must feel good. Gorgeous window garden.
