Glowing and Glistening

Did I say I loved the south?  If I remember right, I have said I love the south, many, many times.  Well today it was hot, and being a northerner once again (after moving back from living in the south) I am not used to it.  It was 95 degrees with high humidity and we wimped out.  Yes, we wimped out totally, we came home from church ate some lunch and promptly fell asleep in the air conditioning.  All four of us!  After a long summer's nap...we woke up and decided to watch a movie, Invictous if anyone wants to know (good movie by the way!).  Then ate a very late dinner, left overs from our picnic yesterday.  I needed to get a walk in, so at 9:00 p.m. we leashed up the dogs and walked for about 30 minutes. 

And that's when it started...drip, drip, drip...drip down the back...drip between the girls, drip down the forehead, drip, drip, drip...   My hair was drenched.  My shirt was wet and my arms felt clammy.  My underwear (I am still a little too heavy to call them panties yet) was sticking to me in a very uncomfortable way.  I use to say that girls glowed or glisten, well not anymore, I was sweating and I mean Sweating with a big S. Sweating like a man...  Ewwwww...

I am not going to complain about it being hot, no, I am not going to complain because before too long it will be winter once again.  But I want it noted that I will surge tomorrow on the treadmill, in the basement with the air on and I will do my strengthening exercises in front of the TV with Jillian...with the air on and close to a register which will be wide open. 

I still do love the south, but I have been away a little too long.
