The Quest

Woohoo! The sun was out today after nearly a week and a half. It was a sight to see (although I never actually looked directly at it- and neither should you). A couple more days like this and I'm hopeful my Irises may actually bloom. What do you think? It's only mid-June!

I'm on a new quest. I noticed a few months ago that I seem to be having an issue with my arms. Seems to be a parachute-like growth hanging under my biceps. And it looks wrinkled. What is this. I'm only in my 40's. Isn't it a bit premature for Grandma arms? Even though I am technically a Grandma. This is big of me to admit. I don't mind growing old. The best is yet to be, right? But, I don't really want to look old. I'm struggling with this.

So, back to my quest. I've started doing push-ups. On the knee's, girl-type push-ups but push-ups just the same. I started out with 10 and figured I could increase my number by one every day. I'm up to thirteen today. And my arms are feeling it. They are on fire. And, if I may be so bold, my chest muscles (um, pectorals?) are feeling it too. Bonus! I'm envisioning a good outcome here in many ways. ;) When I hit fifty, I'll post a picture. Uh, of my arms.

You have to realize that I'm not a workout queen. Well, that's not entirely true. I used to be when I was in my twenties and sure as heck didn't need it. But I've since developed an allergy to sweating so I try to avoid it at all costs. So far, I'm not sweating with the push-ups but give it a week.

Whatever encouragement or advice you can give me to "stick with it" would be appreciated. Also, I've noticed it seems my nose is growing as well. Short of surgery, is there anything I can do about that? Please let me know.

Good Weekend to Everybody!!
Happy Sails!
