What got me “serious” enough to begin hittin’ the iron consistently?(instead of just f’n around)…It was that BBQ early this year…As I was making my exit with glad handing goodbyes, my pals wife (who was sitting in a lawn chair as I was standing) reached up to pat my arm and missed, instead getting a handful of my flab encrusted obliques and gullet from under my hawaiian shirt…I could see the shock and horror on her face and I’d hate to think what my mug looked like at that moment!..
My brain made a mental note at that second: “Somethin’s gotta’ change, this will not happen again”…She is out of the USA until early next year…I have been hittin’ it hard in the gym ever since with determination to hang in there for the long haul…
I wonder if she will notice any improvement when I encounter her (them) in a few months?
The adventure continues, an unexpected “long range goal”, eh? (I guess any motivation is better than none at all)…OK Old-Time Kids, give me your shock stories, I can’t be the only one something like this has happened to!..
