I got up this morning with the intention of going for a short run and then a weight session. Instead I completely forgot to set my alarm, and when I woke up and realized that it was already approaching 6:30AM, I didn’t even fret.
I just lazily stumbled out of bed and instead of getting ready and putting on the clothes that were already laid out, I procrastinated. I started thinking about how hot it is outside and then the treadmill, and then exercise in general, and I couldn’t get this image out of my mind.
So, yeah, my motivation left the room and it hasn’t come back yet. I should probably be concerned about that but instead I’m just….I don’t, I, I ……
The good news is, it has stopped raining here. The bad news is, the mosquito’s are the size of small birds, and they’re hangry!
The state of Florida places sentinel chickens for early detection of West Nile Virus and recently 3 of them in the County I live in have tested positive, so running outside is not only hot, it’s dangerous.
Lately I’ve been wondering, how is it that they can make a 30 day mosquito, tick and flea control for dogs but they haven’t come up with a 30 day mosquito control for people? I mean, I’d put that shit on the nape of my neck, no problem.
Oh, and also, MacGyver and I both gained 5 pounds in five days while we were in the Keys. We have no idea how that happened because we didn’t eat any more than usual, and we were pretty active.Clearly, I am not concerned by those 5 pounds seeing as how I couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed this morning.
Pete the peacock comes around every night for dinner about 7ish. He’s pretty prompt. In fact, that’s how I determine that TMZ is on. When we were in the Keys, the Kid stayed down here and he took care of dinner for all the neighborhood critters including Pete. He also took some pictures and posted them on Reddit.
Last night when the Kid and I were making a run to Wendy’s for a Frosty, (hmmmm, see 5 pounds), we were talking about Pete and the following was our conversation:
The Kid: I posted pics of Pete on Reddit and people sent me all kinds of great info about Peacocks.
Me: Really? Can you ask them a question?
The Kid: Sure, what do you want me to ask them?
Me: Find out why they like colorful clothing better than plain clothes like black or white.
The Kid: What do you mean?
Me: Well, when I wear black, white, or really plain clothes Pete just comes over and eats dinner and then leaves. But lately, when he comes over, I throw on some purple and orange, or teal and yellow, and talk to him, and he fans out his feathers and twerks for me. So can you ask them why he likes more colorful clothing and if that’s why he dances for me and fans his tail?
The Kid: I think the more appropriate question is, why are you trying to seduce a peacock?
Oh Kid, you slay me. Obviously my sense of humor has been inherited, but for the record, I was not trying to seduce the peacock.
Do you lose your motivation after taking a vacation?
How do you get your workout mojo back? Please share because mine has gone to the dogs…or the peacocks…or the turtles, or, you get the point.
