The Daily Post

Lack of interaction has caused many a new blogger’s hopes to run aground on the rocks of demotivation, no matter how gung-ho their blogging start. Many of us quickly realize that publishing is actually the easy part — finding readers and encouraging comments is tougher.

I am preparing to go for the walk.I think I’ll be able to walk 2Km today.I am back from my walk,I am excited to write I managed 3.1 Km today. I’ll have two more to go,which i hope to complete tomorrow. Thank you WordPress for this.

I am back to record what kind of fitness i was able to do today the 24th of September. Nature is not happy for some reason,it’s shedding buckets of tears. I have to keep my promise of doing something. My trustworthy stationary bike came in handy. Here is the summary: I biked for 21 minutes at level 1 which breaks down to : 5 minutes at resistance-1=    6 minutes resistance– 2 =5 minutes resistance -3=  5 minutes — resistance 5    total minutes is 21.

It’s 5.8 Km distance      Calories burned 27.3;  fat calories burned -=5.8.

I don’t know if Nature will stop being so sooky,if it doesn’t tomorrow I may be able to walk the  remaining  2 Km , of course  weather permitting!

DP Daily Prompt: Non Sequitur Post by Ranu

I was talking to my friend over the phone. She complained I don’t call her,when she calls I ask her,’How are you’. I thought fair enough,but when I get the call what else can I say,except,’How are you?’ I thought. She did not agree with me. I avoided pursuing the topic.

While in conversation with her,she gave me the news of her son’s engagement.I congratulated her. She also informed me, the wedding is in New York.I excused myself, I told her I will not be able to attend. Then she said I’ll have to go to Chicago for the reception.

Our conversation moved to my sister in law,she left me a message,in it she kept repeating, “Why aren’t you picking up the phone?” I told my friend this was the time I was in Montreal. Without skipping a beat, she said, ‘When is she expecting’?  She left me wondering what was that about? It was like the saying: “She tried to hit me with a forklift!”
