Good Friends and a New Workout Goal!

What a fantastic evening this has been!  I met up with my friend Vikki for dinner at Hugo’s, one of my favorite restaurants.  That was excitement enough for one evening, as I hadn’t seen Vikki in about a year, but she upped the ante by surprising me by inviting two other friends, David and Glory!  We laughed a lot, and swapped stories, since all of us have been losing weight or lost weight over the past year.  I added it up, and between the four of us, we’ve lost about 240 pounds!  BTW, Glory and David are both connoisseurs of hot wings, and have a blog of their own where they’re going to a different hot wings restaurant every day for a month and writing reviews.  They call it WingTember – and you can read their blog here.

Despite a great dinner of Kelp Noodle Salad (damn it – should have taken a picture), I was still feeling a little peckish when I got home.  So I had a banana, changed clothes, and headed out for a jog.  Tonight I jogged for 35 minutes nonstop, and walked for a little bit after to cool down.  But during the jog I had a genius brainstorm nugget of an idea.  And now that I’m blogging, I’m gonna share it with all of you!  So here goes:

My jogging route tonight took me past V.I.P Showgirls, a local strip club.  It’s nestled in there on Victory Boulevard, right between an Anna’s Linens and Sears – so everyone with a shopping list that includes tools, towels, and a lap dance, do I know where to send you!   If you think I’m lucky to have such a property-value-raising establishment so close to my home, get a load of this:  It’s one of FOUR strip clubs within walking distance of my front door.  That’s right, four strip clubs, a Sears, AND an Anna’s Linens.  Bet you wish you live in North Hollywood right about now!

The four strip clubs are in different directions from my place, however, and therein lies my brainstorm:  I decided this evening that my first jogging goal would be to jog past all four strip clubs in one workout.  I think it’s achievable, and I’m gonna do it!  First step is gonna be to figure out the route and total distance for that jog, so I know what I’m getting into.  I’ll do that in the next couple days with the help of Google Maps, and will surely keep you posted!

Keep it up, David!

    Ok seriously. How in the world did you start jogging 35 minutes?! It took me months, if not a year to do that! AWESOME! I see a 5K in the future, perhaps??
