Sitting hurts

Tonight, I took my very first ever spinning class. Good friends, good music, teacher with beautiful arms ... okay, I'll bike my ass off for a hour.

What they forgot to tell me was that 15 minutes into the workout, my butt bones were going to hurt. 30 minutes into the workout I was going to want to kill people. 45 minutes into the workout I was going to want to kill myself. And 60 minutes after the workout - when we were done and stretching - I was going to feel so blissfully in charge of my body, I could do anything.

It's a great addition to my workout routine, really good for the legs (which really do have muscle in 'em, it's just buried beneath the "other stuff,") and honestly a blast. One more thing I was holding off trying until I became thin.

Gentle reader, don't wait for some future time to do the stuff you really want to do. Why wait when now works just as well? Life is too short to put off the good times for when you think you finally deserve it.

You deserve it now.

I'm so proud of you! You are truly "coming out of the dark," and I am glad to see the sun shining on that gorgeous face!

John, dear ... you are not supposed to make me cry. It's in the bylaws.

Nope, reread those bylaws...John can make you cry.

I less than three John. He's my kind of friend. He sees the gorgeous in that face of yours when you don't and for that he's my kind of friend.

He is proud of you for everything you have done over the last year. Me too, see? My kind of friend.

I like him, you should marry him. ;)
