Uh oh. My cooking Monday's have been tampered with. No power. I barbequed supper which turned out pretty good. Have you ever barbequed mussels before? Not bad - I think I would do it again. Thank goodness the power came back on so I could continue with my Monday ritual.
It has been a rainy past couple of weeks and I am not really sick of it yet partly because I do not let the weather dictate my mood (unless it is the four feet of snow and -40C for weeks on end yes that gets a little wearing on the nerves). It has been rainy and muddy and you can ask people that run with me; I LOVE running through puddles. Both feet, as hard as possible, especially when it is raining hard. You are going to be wet anyways, what is the difference?
It is a joy on a basic level. Like you're not supposed to do it. I'm such a rebel (in my own mind)...but really how often do you see an adult out somewhere just wind up and jump in a puddle? In Maui I was out for a morning run when it started to pour, so I did what any sane person should, ran farther and jumped in every puddle screaming I LOVE THIS! Yup, I apologize if you were in Maui when I was running and you thought I forgot my medication, but it was fun.
So, if you're headed to the treadmill because you are worried about getting muddy, don't do it. Head outside and jump in the puddles and I promise your workout will turn into a "funin". That is my oxymoron for workout. If you "work" "out" it seems you are putting a lot of work in and it is going out somewhere. Where I don't know but perhaps you should find it. However a "fun" "in" has a whole new connotation to it. And so it should, who doesn't want more funin their life? I sure do. Try to find exercise programs that are a funin for you!
Maybe if we changed our thoughts on this whole program it would be better:
Funin's, sweat cleanses, fuel instead of diets and couch squats.
See? Exercise just got a lot more interesting! It won't be easier to do but if you come back from the gym and someone asks where you were you can say: "I was doing my funin.". Then wait for the rumors to start!
