216.3 and Roller Skates

Saturday, August 04, 2018

Down another 1.3 pounds now that the scale is moving again. In keeping with my "play" as exercise plan I bought myself a pair of roller skates. From 4th grade on through college I lived on roller skates. Other kids brought bikes to get around campus. I brought a pair of quads. When we flooded in 2010 one of the things that was lost in the mess was my skates. I had never replaced them. I was in my 40's. Getting "too old" to risk falling. Too fat. Pick a self limiting reason it'll probably work. When my father turned 50 he bought himself a Nintendo 64 gaming system. His reasoning was that if "life begins at 40" then 50 is a second chance at being 10 again and what 10 year old kid wouldn't want a video game. My inner 10 year old isn't much for video games...but she wanted roller skates...and yesterday she got them.
