I was in my late 20s when I first noticed that there would always be one older couple dancing their hearts out to a band playing in the middle of a mall or a hotel, or at a street fair or a farmers market. The couple would waltz, do the box step, cha-cha-cha, boogie-woogie, or just freestyle to the music.
The couple would be so full of joy that others would watch with big grins and smiles on their faces. A few people would even clap in appreciation. And, yes, there would be the few boors who would point at the older couple, laugh and make fun of them. But, then that's what boors do.
Well, here's the good news. Turns out the Husband and I have become one of those effervescent older couples.
Sam Farr 30-Day ChallengeI'm done! Yesterday was the last day. Whoo-hooo! I followed the rules as well as can be.
- I ate no foods made of flours or had more than 20 grams of sugar per serving.
- For 29 out of the 30 days, I ate no food nor drank alcohol after 7:30 PM.
- I worked out every day, pedaling Tilda-Hilda, the pretty pink cruiser, for a total of 303 miles and walking an altogether 6.55 miles.
Today, I'm joining at ABC Wednesday. This week is the letter "E" as in effervescent.
