We have a great gym here. Lots of great equipment. Some of us actually use it. Merrill, as is to be expected, has a system. Me, I’m pretty haphazard in my workouts. I usually go 40 minutes on the elliptical – that’s how long it takes to watch an episode of whatever TV show is on my daily schedule.
Did I tell you about that? Before I left, Seth helped me rip several TV series to MP4 format so I could watch them on my iPod. It helps me get through the week. As I write this I seem to remember that I did. Monday is Lost, Tuesday is 3rd Rock from the Sun, Wednesday was the Simpsons until I ran out of episodes so now it’s whatever I choose, Thursday is Dark Shadows (the 90’s remake), Friday is Wonder Woman (and yes it is totally cheesy, but Lynda Carter still makes me all tingly like she did when I was a teenager…oops, did I just say that?), Friday is Star Trek The Next Generation and Sunday is my favorite night, Snallville.
Then I go and lift weights. I have somewhat of a routine but nothing that would make it into any men’s health magazine. I used to have a partner, but he totally bagged out on me – see the next paragraph.
That’s another thing we talk about when we sit around eating or lounging, our personal fitness goals. Some of us want ripped abs, some of us want to lose our “man boobs,” some of us just want to lose a few pounds. Some of sit around and talk about it but don’t do anything about it. Some of us used to work out with others of us but those some of us have quit and become lazy slobs and are going to go home with their “man boobs.” Of course I won’t mention any names but you know who you are.
So ask your respective husbands who is the guilty culprit and tell them to get off their ever expanding butts and get back to the gym so I can have a workout partner again!!
