There was a day when I realized I was spending too much time at a desk, in a car, or in a cozy chair talking with friends. Sure I walked and hiked, but consistently? Not enough.
So I called for help.
He said he could lose a few pounds too. He only took off 4. He took 13 off me.
He said I was a rough case. He needed a colleague. That’s the strong-willed one on the right.
The chill rain and the fact that we’re heading into another long Alaska winter makes walking a bit harder to get into these days but these two make it easier.
I’ll also admit that recently warm cookies, cozy evenings and dinners with warm-hearted friends put 4 pounds back on. They’ve already shaved 2 back off.
If you’ve been hanging out too much much indoors or at your desk, I have only two words for you, “gym shoes.” And if you feel they’re telepathing “leash, now” at you, you’re gifted with the ability to read eyes.
p.s. An update: It’s November 20th, and the temp has be in the single digits for days, and -10 last night, but the pups have carved those 4 pounds off in the last two and a half weeks.
