Don't try to go for a walk around dinnertime.
I lead a life that a couch potato would be proud of. But in an attempt to try to lose weight and get back into shape I have been taking walks and jogs. Most of the walks and jog happen in the morning or afternoon, but the other day I wanted to take one in the evening.
It was dinnertime but my wife was going out to a late dinner with a friend so I thought it would be ok for me to slip out and go for a walk. My wife disagreed and said that even though she was working on something she would prefer me to stay home and talk with her. Apparently even when you are not eating dinner together, dinnertime is still together time.
