I don't want to sound rude....

Thursday, April 25, 2013

My title emoticon was one of my favorite conversation starters last night. It's baseball season, my son & I spend many evenings at the fields for 2+ hours for practices & games. I don't complain, he's being active, he is really begining to figure out that you can love a sport & feel a sense of accomplishment from it. Before he played because it's what his friends did & didn't want to be left out.

Anyways, with all this time at the fields I walk, I tried to run but the ground isn't level and sometimes I'm on gravel, my biggest fear is breaking my bad ankle, so walking it is. I aim between 30 and 60 mins of walking time, I enjoy it, it allows me to plug in my ear buds and drown everything out. I wave to people and just hope they don't think I'm being rude for not stopping. (I want to keep my heart rate up)
Last night during my sons game I was at the concession stand looking at all my choices, my brain was screaming NACHOS!!!!!! I started to walk away without the nachos and one of the moms stopped me.
"Aimee, I don't want to sound rude but have you lost weight." I looked at her and said "Are you saying I'm fat?" and started laughing. I quickly told her that I have but couldn't tell her how much because I'm not stepping on a scale and I thanked her for noticing. It's been a long time since anyone has said anything and I just chalk it up to them seeing me everyday.
I did go back to the concession stand and bought a bag of sunflower seeds, next game I will be bringing a bag of snacks so I can avoid the temptation.

    That does sound like an odd way to compliment someone, but it's great that she noticed your hard work and efforts! Good choice on avoiding the nachos too!
