that one time I went to the gym

Remember how I’m really awesome at always exercising?   ya. . . winters where I don’t ski or have access to a yoga/zumba/kickboxing class kind of throw that out the window apparently.  I went to the gym this weekend and had a big fat humbling workout (first one in *ahem* 2 months?)  you know, that workout where you set out to lift the same # of pounds as you “normally” lift and have to move it down a notch.  and then another one.  and then crap, this is just embarrassing.  And then how you get on a tricep machine and you’re thinking “do i even have triceps??  because I can’t even kind of lift this.”  And then there’s that one machine that you can’t even do five reps on the lowest setting.   (ok shoulder press, you win.) And here I was thinking that carrying this 20 pound (almost walking but not there yet) baby around everywhere was probably helping me out in the muscle category.  Not so, Dana.  Not so.

  1. that’s because it is children of the 30lb variety are the REAL challenge, but I guess 20lbs is still pretty impressive … 😉

    Also you have inspired me to go do some crunches. Hoo-raw!
