I don't want to sound rude....
Thursday, April 25, 2013
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.
