So the healthy lifestyle is in full swing. There have been some difficulties, but basically it's going well. I went to the gym at 5:45 a.m. on Tuesday and did 30 minutes of interval training on the treadmill. I ended up with HUGE blisters on the back of my heels. This is no surprise since the same thing happened the last time I started getting into shape. It's ironic that when you start getting healthier, your body freaks out on you. It's almost like it wants to make sure you are really serious about getting healthy so it tests you on your dedication by making you feel like crap the first couple of weeks. I'm sticking with it though - I've done this before so I know it gets better. It's just an uphill climb for the first couple of weeks.
On another note, when I was in Half Price Books this last weekend, I saw something that made me laugh. There was a book on tape called "Make Peace With Anyone: Breakthrough Strategies to Quickly End Any Conflict, Feud, or Estrangement." It was marked "Clearance $3.00." Apparently, no one cares to make peace with anyone even at a price of $3.00.
Another thing that made me laugh: I was talking with my mother and she told me about a homeless guy she had seen over the weekend. The guy held a sign that said "Family killed by ninjas. Need money for martial arts lessons." I told my mother she should have given him a few dollars just for his creativity.
