On The Stove

Currently I have shredded potatoes boiling on the stove. The plan is to make homemade hash-browns for a meal. I’ve done it once before, but I tried to use honey as a means to make them brown better when fried. This time I’m just going for the straight potato without any additives for browning. I’ll just fry them with butter. Picture to follow if they turn out!

Exhausted!

Damn! 3.5 miles in 46 minutes wiped me out! After doing the run this morning I decided to go do laundry and get shopping done. My legs feel like they are going to fall off! Still, I know it’s doing me good. I am woefully out of condition and over weight. I’ve had nothing but sputtering starts to exercising. If it isn’t a cold, it’s my shoulder, or my lower back. However, I persevere.

All things considered, not a bad run. I had to stop once to walk off a side ache. Of course, the side ache showed I was pushing myself just past my limit. It also shows I’m pitifully out of shape. But, considering the shape of many my age, I still consider myself lucky.

Alright, enough of this; it’s time for me to go do laundry.
