Baseball+my son=Me moving more
Sunday, May 22, 2011
When I was younger I was a huge baseball fan. I would get up on a Saturday morning, stretch out and run down to the field for the day. I watched it on TV and knew the starting lineups of several teams. I don't know what happened to me and baseball...it's like we never talk anymore.
My son is in Little League and is starting to take a liking to the sport. We are getting out and throwing the ball around at night. This is important because he is starting to like the video games more than living life. I have found when they are taken away he is much more likely to instigate a game of catch ;)
Another push to get this weight off. The other day he asked why I wasn't hustling to the ball that he over threw on me. He was right. How can I tell him to hustle to the ball when I'm not. I could feed excuses like I'm too old, out of shape...but I didn't. I told him he was right and made a note to myself that this is another reason I need to get this thing in gear.
I know that his experience will be better with me out there doing it with him instead of telling him from the side what to do. So...I'm about to hustle...
