I love guys with washboard abdominal muscles, like Mr Trapper Hat to the left here. Sadly, rippling abs are something that a young man has for only several years before he starts putting on weight around his middle. Then they’re gone forever. So, we have to enjoy the beauty of a guy’s abs while he has them.
Our fish dinner last night was really delicious; you can’t beat fresh redfish form coastal Florida. Our good friend and neighbor joined us, and it made for a nice evening. I’m afraid I stayed up too late afterward, which meant I didn’t get up early enough to take my usual three-mile walk on the beach. Instead I made a quick breakfast, and then I got to work on my novel-in-progress. I put in two solid hours at the keyboard, writing fresh material, before I had to met with a contractor for twenty minutes.
It’s almost lunchtime now, and I have a typical Monday ahead of me. Right after lunch my boyfriend and I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a full workout and lap-swimming in the indoor pool. Now that all my summer travels are over, I plan to stick to my exercise plan religiously, in hopes of losing about seven pounds around my middle. This involves hitting the YMCA three days a week, and running two or three miles four days a week. If I watch what I eat and drink, I should meet my goal. No, I won’t have rippling abs, but at least I’ll trim my waist.
Have a great Monday, friends, wherever you are today.
