Perfect weather; Lisa’s back; All lost in the supermarket.

I know this is going to grate on the nerves of some of you who are buried in snow (sorry!), but I’ve really been enjoying the cold snap we’ve been experiencing here in Central Florida the past few days. It’s just above freezing right now (34? F), and this is truly about as close as we get to “Winter” around here. The high today is expected to be around 60 degrees, and the skies are crystal clear – that’s my idea of perfect weather. There’s no way I can stay inside on a day like today.

Unfortunately Lisa won’t be joining me. Somehow she pulled a muscle in her back and is totally couch-bound. I’ve been telling her to start deadlifting, squatting and strengthening her posterior chain, but she doesn’t want any part of it. I know that if she worked those muscles, she would not be in the position she’s in now. Does anyone else see the irony here? Somehow I’m able to provide motivation to perfect strangers from all over the world, but I can’t get my own wife to lift weights! I don’t believe in being pushy: I’ve never been comfortable with the “drill sergeant” approach, and instead try to lead by example. Sometimes it’s tough to keep my mouth shut, because I know what a huge difference weight training has made to my quality of life. I’m sure many of you can relate to what I’m saying!

Well, I’d better get going. I’ve got cardio to do, breakfast to eat and then I’ve got to fill in for Lisa and go grocery shopping. It’s going to take me 10 times as long as Lisa to get the shopping done. I have no idea where everything is. To quote an old Clash song, “I’m all lost in the supermarket”. Was that too obscure?
