The time is currently 6:15 am and I am sitting here at my laptop with my mesh running shorts on my ass, yellow running shirt on my back, and gray running shoes on my feet. I am all prepared for my 40 minute run, but unfortunately it is raining, thundering and lightning..again. This tropical, Miami-like weather is preventing me working out and continuing my quest to get svelte (I weighed in at 192 this morning, down from 216 in February). I don't know about anyone else, but when I get a great deal of momentum going on the workout front, and I've done it about 5-6 days in a row, when that 6th or 7th day comes, and I do nothing, a substantial wave of guilt encompasses me. Even though its completely ridiculous, I feel like the weight is going to come back overnight and I somehow am losing ground (but not weight) in my svelte race. Even as I am typing this, I have looked back out of the window at least 67 times to see if the rain, thunder and lightning and subsided enough for me to go out there run anyway (they have not). Does anyone else have these types of thoughts, or am I alone on the island of crazy once again?

Also, for those of you who are actually taking the time to buy father's day gifts, what are you putting them in? Are you wrapping them? Putting them in a gift bag? or is your gift coming in the form of only a card or a meal? Do you see my shameless attempt make this a call and response type of blog, 3 years after I initially started this blog as a bitter, supercilious man? Blame it on the lack of a workout.

By the way, supercilious is one of those words I had forgotten about until last night Seinfeld's episode, when Frank Costanza used it while describing Elaine. I was determined to fit it in (that's what he said).

No, you aren't the only one who feel that way. I started walking 3-4 days out of the week and yesterday I did not go because it was too cool, wet and looked as if it was about to rain again (I could not take my child out in that weather) so I went home, but I felt guilty and was worried that I was setting myself back weightloss wise. The weather seems much better today so I will be out walking, I suppose that is enough to make me feel ok about not having gone yesterday.

Oh and for fathers day my Dad is getting a gift card. To where? Have not figured that out sister and I are supposed to be going in on this gift so it is definaitely still up in the air.

I admire your dedication. Me? I looked out the window this morning and said 'Hell No' and rolled back over for an extra 30 minutes of sleep. hahahahhaa
