Hip and ankle pain had been getting in the way of my exercise…as had the increasingly warm weather. I started swimmiing a few days ago…and am glad to realize that it is not really lethargy that has set in. I enjoy swimming so much, especially at twilight…yesterday the pool lights had also not been switched on, and I could see the half moon slowly rising over the top floor as I swam up and down our small pool…when exercise is this pleasant, keeping fit is no big deal.
I think my LJ has a readership of ONE….it would be better if I just emailed that ONE….!why am I spending hours online when all it would take would be an offline email, sent in a few seconds??
What does one do when one keeps attending gatherings of the same friends, and the conversation palls? They are, after all, good friends and have kept one going through good times and bad…and yet, there is something stale to the conversation, the evening drags, and though each dinner creates a need to reciprocate, one does not, in the least, feel like calling them over home for yet another dreary evening…no one seems to want to sing, or play games, but just talk, and talk, and talk..when one is sleepy at 9.30 pm and dinner is served well after that, it is difficult to be the life and soul of any party. Should I refuse to go to such dinners in future? I see no way out of the dilemma…..
How easy it is to fall OUT of the habit of regular exercise…no matter how long one has been doing one’s walk, or workout, or any other form of discipling the body, it is remarkably simple to get out of the habit ….and so diabolically difficult to get back into the habit again once it is broken! Meanwhile, bulges appear, one’s jeans and saree blouses tell merciless tales, there is a bloaty feeling of not being light and trim…and yet it is still tough to get back! The mind says, “hey, lardo, get going and on the road!” and the body says, “Hmm….what about from tomorrow?”
trying out the Lower Kindergarten lessons on LJ provided by <LJuser=”shortindiangirl”>….hah, now to update my LJ and see if I get the link correctly…
