Well, Labor Day is upon us signaling the end of summer. And a good summer it was. I certainly hate to see it end. But such is progress. We must constantly move forward, but I just can’t seem to wait for next summer to begin. I got some big plans for next summer.
And as I check my calendar, I realize that for some reason, I chose today as the day to begin my lifestyle change, as the day to begin eating healthier and exercising regularly. But I’ll have to put that off until tomorrow. At the present, I just am not strong enough to turn down ribs and red meat hot off the grill. Plus, you have to crawl before you walk. I’m still not sure why I even chose today anyway. What was I thinking?
Today I’ll stuff myself with stuff I know I should not be eating. And tomorrow I will attempt to make up for it by eating all kinds of exotic fruit and cheeses, some of which I cannot even pronounce. And maybe I’ll even be able to get up early enough in the morning to try this new running routine a friend sent me.
Hey, maybe if I do well with my new healthier lifestyle choices, next Labor Day I can treat myself to all the foods I will have to give up during the year. That’s something to strive for. I knew we could work this thing out.
So, today I won’t hold you long. If you are reading this, thanks for stopping by and sharing a few minutes of your Labor Day with me. I wish I had something more substantial to offer you, but right now I have some meat to season up really well and a grill to heat to just the right temperature. Plus, I need to find out who is bringing the potato salad. You know you just can’t eat everybody’s potato salad.
Have a wonderful day. Enjoy your family and friends. And stuff yourself without guilt.
