I over did it. I knew I had, the moment I opened my eyes. Sure it was cold. All 56-degrees, and 20-mile winds with a light rain kinda cold, but cold nonetheless. Yet, I knew that was not the reason why my body would not obey the commands of “get your @$$ up” at 6 this morning. I knew I had a problem when my body would not obey the same command at 7, 8 or 9 am! Oh, calm down, I’m not dying. Diagnosis? Over did it!
How? The culprit that brought this diagnosis was, you guessed it! A workout buddy! You have one too? Look, is very simple, I have lots of work to do, and I’m going to need more than functioning eyelids and earlobes to get it done. I need shoulders, knees, and toes!
I tried to talk her to death during the workout with hopes that she would be too distracted to workout hard, but that only worked for a little bit. Then we hit the weights. Look, can we share? Ok, I’ll go first. I don’t lift anything! No, I’m not old fashion. I just don’t lift for pleasure. If you ever see me lift anything, rest assure it had to be done. Like, you want an example? Ok, like if I needed to lift a 5-pound rock to save a life. However, It has come down to this folks. I’m officially 40 pounds over my ideal weight. What scale am I using? Are you kidding me? I don’t need a stinking weight scale! I have a brain. yeap, that same brain that couldn’t wake me up at 6 am. 😀
It is what it is, and it is time for serious workouts with buddies.
