**As with any weight loss plan, first consult your doctor.
(Disclaimer: Now I know that you understand that what you are about to read you will take in the good nature it was intended. This isn't a real plan, so be careful out there in the heat and sun this summer.)
The other day I was out riding my V-Star when this wonderful idea hit me. I need to lose some weight (and don’t most of us?) and while out and about this brilliant plan came to mind.
Here’s a list of the following things you will need:
First – you will need a motorcycle (Yea!!!)
Second – Wait till it’s at least 90-94 degrees Fahrenheit, but has a slight breeze.
Third – You need a long list of errands to do. The longer the list the better, something that will take at least 1-2 hours.
Fourth – and this is important – wear ALL your gear. Helmet, jacket, gloves, tall boots, & leathers.
Fifth – need lots of water (of course, any weight-loss program requires this)
This whole plan came to mind (maybe it was half-baked by then, lol) after about two hours of running errands on my motorcycle. As most of you know Father’s Day is this Sunday, and I still needed to find that elusive gift for my husband from his sons. So with all the listed requirements above, I headed off. I went to the two major motorcycle stores in town, in hopes of inspiration. Nothing!!! I went to another store I thought of, but can’t mention in case my husband reads this, and they’re all out of what I was looking for (*sigh and frustration*).
By now it’s been about two hours and 29 miles on my motorcycle. The sun is out and I am sweating. Early on I did crack open the full-face shield and that was a great relief. Dejected, I decided it was time to go home and try again another day. So after 37 miles I was empty-handed, but despite the heat I did enjoy the ride. (Note: You have to look for those silver liners.) I figure with as wet as I was from sweat when I got home, I had to of shed at least five pounds!!! Hey!!! A couple of more days and rides like that I can look like Barbie!?!
Side Note: I’m one of those last minute shoppers for holidays and such. So today I find something for my husband. It’s not brilliant like I wanted, but hey, it’s the thought that counts. Right? This is how bad I am with shopping. I get home and tell my youngest son I found something for his Dad and he gets all upset and declares "Today’s Father’s Day?!?"
Wishing All of You Guys out there a Happy Father’s Day,
