Don’t Be Like That…I Need You!
I woke up to the sounds of taunts from none other than my….Treadmill!
The breaks are often not intentional. I would never intentionally hurt his feelings. I mean, he’s so good for me why would I want to hurt him, right? I feel sometimes he just doesn’t understand me. Here’s how our conversation went this morning:
T: ‘Mmmm hhmmm, I knew it. What’s you’re excuse today?’
Me: Huh, who’s that waking me up this early after I pulled a late night working so hard on…?
T: You know who this is! Stop acting brand new!
T: I’ve heard it all too many times before…’this time is going to be different’ ‘I really need you’ ‘I’ve been a bad girl!’ Stop talking dirty to me! Building up my hope only to let me down…once again!
Me: Did you not see me crawl into bed at 1am? I need my rest. I was serious about reuniting with you. You know how much you do for me. I appreciate that and I don’t take it for granted. I’m just a little tired today…then I have so much work to do…there is tomorrow.
T: Yeah, ok. The only thing I ask is don’t blame me when you struggle to get into your favorite pair of jeans. You know the ones that make your butt go “POW!” Yeah, those. I like them too!
Me: Oh yes, I do like those jeans! And so does hubby. Hmmm… Well, when you put it like that….and I am fully awake now. Why not?!?
T: There you go! I knew you had in you to do! Come on let’s get it!
Me: Ok, let me lace up my sneakers…
Needless to say, Treadmill was right. I don’t know if his trickery, the awesome guilt he laid on me, or if the honest truth got me out that bed after just four and a half hours of sleep. Whatever it was I’m glad I moved because I am now seeing the scale move as well. Moving in the right direction that is!
Have fun with working out #BattleBuddy because it’s easy to make excuses and put it off. These extras pounds remind me that I am able to be consistent with something – EATING! I now chose to be consistent with something else – Making my HEALTH a priority!
