Now back to those 2 lost pounds, it's all a trick — because tomorrow I will get on the scale and those 2 pounds will be back. You see, it's all about dryness and moisture. When I got on the plane yesterday in Colorado I left clear blue skies, fluffy white clouds and dry air and when I stepped off the plane in Virginia, I felt like I had walked into a sauna. To understand the hazy dog days of summer, you need only visit Virginia in August. It's hard to believe that in Virginia I carry two extra pounds of moisture in my skin and hair but the reality is, I DO......But at least for two days when I return from a Western trip I can almost believe I lost 2 pounds. I love Virginia because my nose is happy, my skin is happy, my eyes are happy, but on the minus side my hair is big and frizzy and I have a huge air conditioning bill.
No place is perfect; believe me I know this from experience. But there is always something to love about where ever you are. None of us are perfect either but there are many more plusses to each of us than there are minuses.
Now, about that candy bar at the top of the post. I actually contemplated having it for dinner tonight. I'm having a bit of a hard time getting my groove back (I could have hit the gym last night and today but it didn't happen). But I'm sure tomorrow when I step on the scale and see that I've gained those 2 pounds back, that will be just the incentive I need to get back to the torture chamber, I mean gym.
