While the heat and humidity continue pretty much unabated, I still managed to walk TWICE today. That's SIX miles, thank you very much.

This morning, while yesterday evening's cool front was still with us, Steph and I walked three miles at Des Peres park, up and down the hills there. It was a glorious morning. I came home to change then ran some errands on the way to spend a few hours with my mom. Ended up giving her a hair cut and having a nice chat. I was so energetic.

When I got home, I did laundry and other stuff around the house, including helping my daughter make some brownies, but got antsy. So, Sally and I met at the mall for another couple miles. I may have not made it to exactly 6 miles, but based on time, that's what I'm calling it.

Even in the mall, the humidity still gets to me. But, I don't care - unless I am trying to retain an acceptable appearance for some after-walk appointment. That's a problem for me on Tuesday evenings when Laurie and I walk and I then attend a gathering for about 90 minutes before going home. Those folks are going to have to get used to seeing (but I hope not smelling) me wringing wet.

Wringing wet is what I get from this weather. Drippy from the head down. Sunscreen running into my eyes (no matter how much they swear you can't sweat it off), burning and no longer offering any sort of protection. BTW - be sure to use that stuff if you're fair skinned &/or light-eyed. I've already had one skin cancer removed from my face!

Anyway, Steph and I are scheduled to walk again Monday after work. Wringing wet or not, I'm still going at it!

Remember my 100% GUARANTEE. Should you decide to stop walking and resume your old habits, I personally guarantee that you'll get back 100% of your former life - your pain, your lifestyle, your attitude.

I thought I saw you three different times the other day, but it turned out to be three different people with your statue, body type, and hair color. How strange is that?

Well, I do get around the neighborhood pretty often - but even I'm NOT that good! Must be a lot of ME's out there!
