In the Box

Day 83

I just finished supper. I had a chocolate shake with coconut and caramel flavoring blended with ice. It was quite nice.

After work I went to the Y. I got there a little earlier than usual, so there weren't many people there. I did an hour on the treadmill, jogging about 18 minutes. Then I decided I would work out on some of the weight equipment. I picked one that looked like I could figure out how to use it. It's for your abs. I finally got the weights figured out and did three sets of 10. I was thinking this is easy, but I don't feel any pull in my belly. So I moved on to another machine to work the arms. While I was figuring that machine out, someone else got on the ab machine. I wasn't even close to using it the way it was supposed to be used. I am going back tomorrow.

The jeans that I ordered from e-bay came in today. I got three pair and being used, they are broken in already. I ordered two of size 14 and one of size 12. I could wear all of them and could snap and zip the size 12. I have NEVER worn at size 12. When I was 16 I weighed 116 and wore a size 16. I think the clothing folks believe they will sell more if we think it is a smaller size. Or maybe sizing has just changed over the years. Either way, it beats the size 24 that I used to wear.

Intelligence is like underwear. It's important that you have it, but there's no need to show it off.
