Feeling crappy today. Could be the bombing in London; could be the weather; could be the onset of birthday 4-0. In any case, found it hard to be motivated this morning. Wasn't going to do pushups, but I looked out the window and saw Luba, a Russian neighbor, who is out there EVERY MORNING, rain, snow, sleet, hail or tornado, walk-running around the block three times. Really, she never misses a day. Even in the blizzards this year, she was out there. She cannot be stopped. She's the Russian Energizer Bunny. When I saw her, I thought, "I must do pushup." Then I did them, badly, and without panache, but I did them. Only one walk this week; and one trip to the gym. It may be that I'm addicted to my endorphins and I'm down a few, not a great place to be before detecto. Besides all the dreariness, I do feel somewhat, well, fat. If I am addicted to exercise I'm really gonna be mad at someone.

Today I ate 30 pistachios out of a bored frustration, I'll admit it. I also had a second cup of coffee. Aside from issues mentioned above, Ruby has been waking several times during the night and needing parental attention, so that leaves one quite un-well rested in the AM. Then, without the mood-elevating walks, one's mood can really crank out. Forget the ominous twin spectres of a 40th bday AND detecto.
