(Internal Me): He Ben, you there?
(Me): What's up, I'm working.
(Internal Me): Stop for a second and check out this chick:
(Internal Me): She's pretty jacked, huh?... are those arms bigger than yours?
(Me): Yeah, maybe.
(Internal Me): Maybe.... mmmm, I'm thinking more like definitely. Why do you think that is?
(Me): I dunno.
(Internal Me): If I had to guess, I'd say it's cause she works out a lot harder than you do. You remember working out right? It's that thing where you go the gym and do something productive with your body.
(Me): Look man! Enough with the attitude! Work's been really freakin' busy and I'm having some relationship problems right now. At the end of the day, I don't always have time and the energy to work out.
(Internal Me): No time huh? Well, you seem to have found time to order in Chinese food a couple of times this week.
(Internal Me): Yeah.... yeah... I mean, she probably doesn't eat deep-friend, greasy Chinese food, but it seems to be working for you, so I wouldn't worry about it.
(Me): I had a bit of sore throat this week, the spicy food felt good, like it was flushing out the bad stuff.
(Internal Me): No, totally, I get it. Just uh, just keep that in mind when you look in the mirror later.
(Me): Well, I'm gonna work out today. That should be good.
(Internal Me): That's what I'm talking about. Get in the gym, lift some heavy shit off the ground. Remember you have to lift big to get big.
(Me): Word up.
(Internal Me): So what are you gonna do later?
(Me): I'm gonna go freakin' kick some ass in the gym!
(Internal Me): You're damn right you are! You're damn right.
I (re) fell in love with food when I quit smoking. My tastebuds changed, and I suddenly started liking food in a new way.
Unfortunately, using that same willpower to diet was really diffucult. So, I took the attitude of "I'm allowed to eat whatever I want as long as I work out 3 times a week and do some cardio."
Over time, I just stopped eating some things because I could feel it making me sick. Apparently, working out makes you attune to your body.
I know diet and exercise is the best, but if you have a choice, do the excercise, and leave the diet for the 2nd. My advice, anyway since I felt it worked for me.
I agree. I have always exercised (on and off) but my eating has never been that great. I keep thinking that maybe I should make my first priority to slim down a bit... but then I just keep thinking that if I just started working out regularly, everything else would fall into place.
(Internal her) Me want to *clap* pump you up!
Ha ha, top drawer... top drawer :)
