Arnie as in Arnold “I’ll Be Back” Shwarzendfnsafoafoinfoeinfger… you know… before he turned creeptastic and cheaty and secret love childy… back when he was just a really bad actor with huge-mongous muscles! This past Thursday in physical therapy (session numero 2), evil lady therapist chic decides it’s not enough that she should twist my arm around like it be torture session at the prison mixer… I told her she may have my hands tied down, but I done got two working legs to kick a hole in her head with; that hasn’t seemed to deter her torturing ways! EVIL!!!!!!!! Next time I’m in a really bad mood, I’m going to sign up to become a physical therapist… evil critters anyway!
Anyway… it wasn’t enough that she should do the twisting thing, so she throws in weights to build up the now nonexistent muscles in my forearms/wrist… I’m all like give me the 10-pounder… easy peasy! She decided it’d be better to start at 2 pounds… which was cool and all, but after 2 minutes of grunting and screeching like a pound puppy stuck in a kitten farm, I hadn’t moved it. SERIOUSLY!?!?!? I can’t even lift a 2-pounder with ye yonder wristy thing? She moved me down to a 1 pounder, which… and I don’t mean to brag or anything… I TOTALLY ACED!! Yay me! Nothing like a degrading move from 2 to 1 pound to get that confidence pumping. I’m aiming to become a miniature weight lifter… if I keep this up, I could probably lift doll furniture for gold medal status! BRING IT!!
In other news… weighing myself for the first time in 2-1/2 months revealed things that weren’t pretty… ugly number anyway! At least I know and I did me some exercising today… which really goes well with my anemia… sweat dries (TMI ALERT) and then I end up shivering, bones clacking together until I can get into the hot shower. Did I mention how much I loved cold weather!? Where’s my tiny violin? I actually felt pretty good about today… logged my food… did the exercise… and ate a good amount of vegetation, which has been sorely lacking the last several weeks. No excuses… get up offa that buttocks and do it! You have a miniature doll house lifting gig to train for!
QUESTION OF THE DAY: How has your winter exercising routine been going? Any fun indoor exercising inventions to share?
