That Exercise Fairy

Remember how I discovered the truth about the exercise fairy? Well, it turns out I do just fine without her. The last 1.5 weeks, I made it to my aiki budoin every single class. That hadn't happened in ages! I also have been taking Giant (yes, maybe HE is the exercise fairy) for walks and even have been running part of the way. Heck, today I ran most of the way around the block. Yes, it was not a very big block, and it was not a very fast run, but I did it anyway! More than I usually manage to run.


Mongoose and all, thanks for your advice about running. It is not even that I don't like it, it is just that I can't do it! Which I am sure is mostly because I have never trained for it. Which also means that I could actually train myself to be able to do it. Maybe. I am not totally convinced yet.


In addition to exercising, I am cooking more. Over the last few years, it was one of the balls I dropped many more times than I wanted to. Tonight, I made a nice curry, and life was good. I even have enough leftovers for tomorrow's lunch!

I guess now I just have to get to sleep before midnight, which I might not be totally successful at tonight.

Ha. Maybe we should start racing each other.^^ I used to use telephone poles along the road by the soccer fields as markers. I'd make myself keep going one further pole each time. Obviously I am not one to push myself too much all at once.

I made curry tonight as well. With cauliflower, onions, tofu, sugar snap peas, and carrots. And not the Japense style.

Thanks for the hug. That curry looks delicious. You foul temptress! I'm trying to watch what I eat! LOL

Anyway, I'm off to exercise some. :)
