Stomach Fat to the Rescue

This morning I woke up and thought, “Oh poop, this extra layer of holiday stomach fat didn’t disappear overnight as I hoped.”  Oh well, what can I expect when I continue to eat additional holiday foods after the holidays?

Rather than reflecting too long on my stomach, I headed out for my morning walk with Izzy.  I was determined not to let the low temperatures of the morning stop me from walking my usual 40-45 minutes.  Several times on my walk my fingers became super cold and I knew I either had to head back home fast or I had to once again use my stomach to warm up my hands.  I chose my stomach.  Oh boy was I glad to feel that extra layer of fat as my cold hands slipped into my shirt.  Thank you stomach and all your beautiful layers of fat.  You instantly warmed up my hands and I was able to enjoy another beautiful morning walk with snow flakes falling all around me!

  1. I'm sleeping in my tent these cold nights, trying out gear for an anticipated week long February backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail.

    I, too, use my all too ample belly fat to warm my hands when I get in my bag.

    If only I could figure out how to wrap my poor cold feet in that same warm fat!
