The Hoosier Slippery Slope
Because I have been extra busy gettin the McMansion ready for the market and looking for a rental, I have not been getting to the gym as much as I am used to lately. And to be bone honest (though my bones aren't showing quite as clearly as they used to be), I have been eating a tad too many calories to boot. As a result, I've noticed that certain, uh, aspects (ass & pecs) are starting to, well, slide southward, if you get my drift. Without a consistent weight lifting routine, I don't have a chance against gravity and I don't have a chance of fitting into last summer's clothes. (Okay, I already don't. There, I said it. Are you happy?)
But, tonight, I had an inspiration that I believe will turn things around and get me back on track. I am a little embarrassed to say that it involved Madonna. In an enthusiastic moment brought on by a martini last night, I downloaded Madonna's new CD onto my ITunes. I didn't listen to it until this evening at which time I noticed that I had gotten a Madonna music video along with the download. So, I watched it.
There was Madonna, scantily clad, doing her thing. And I thought to myself, Hey, I may be no Madonna, but I am the same age, more or less. There is no reason that I can be as fit as she is (unless you consider that she probably has a staff of a few hundred people, including a nutritionist, a trainer and a chef...but I digress.)
So, I am embarking on getting back my fitness starting tomorrow. I am going to hire a personal trainer from IU for the summer and I am going to pay them to kick my fat jiggly ass. I know that this is completely spoiled and wimpy of me, but I am going to do it anyway, so there. First, I am going to confirm that there is no law against being fit in Indiana (from the looks of things, one sometimes wonders) and then, I am going to go full tilt. I will take a before shot in my bikini and when I have a decent after shot, I shall post them both. But not before, so don't ask me to.
It's time for bed.
