I sinfully pigged out last night on: two ice cold Bud Lites in frozen mugs, fried shrimp, stuffed shrimp, stuffed crab, hushpuppies, stuffed mushrooms and Mississippi mud pie. As a result of my pigfest, I ended up tossing and turning all night because my belly was not used to eating that much (even in my buddha-belly days!). But hey... it was my birthday... and I was celebrating it with my twin brother, his wife, their son, and a woman with the same birthday as ours named Jenny. No, Jenny and I were NOT on a date.
With my Catholic guilt working overtime from my sinful gluttony, I hauled my fat gut to the gym this morning for a grueling leg workout. I went up on all my weights. I was determined to repent from the previous night sins of overindulgence. And repent I did! I did between thirty to forty-five reps of: 140# ab machine, 320# calf raises, 160#'s hamstring leg extensions, and 160#'s quad leg extensions. I even willed my sinful self to finish off the leg workout doing 30 reps of squats at 360#'s.
That made me feel proud. I am convinced God rewarded me by purposively sending that handsome Hispanic man, who I mentioned last Friday, passing by right when my legs were up in the air on a leg press machine. He just smiled and winked and my heart went pitter patter. Maybe he is really my guardian angel looking over me and that wink was just simply a "good job!". Hmmm.... who am I kidding? As much as I can fantasize about him being my guardian angel, he is sadly a mere mortal. How do I know? I distinctly remember him bitching about having to work overtime to support his wife's spending habits a few weeks ago. Sounds just like any typical male at my gym. They all bitch about their wives spending, then turn around and talk about how they are buying a new fishing boat or a truck.
So, now I am at work on "Dress Down Friday" in my Lucky shirt and my long shorts I wore to the gym. I totally forgot to bring my dress clothes with me to work. I am soooo glad my boss and my boss's favorite son is drag racing in Texas right now. Whew! Off the hook! Another reward for my grueling leg workout. I am truly blessed today!
