This morning was glorious. I slept in. No gym for this woman. I am going tonight with my sis to get some hard core lifting in and so Wednesday morning was meant for getting out of bed at 7:21 and making it to school at 7:45.
I know some of you don’t believe me but I am not exaggerated at all on the above statement. The key to taking less than 10 minutes to get ready for work is to not get ready. The night before: pack all of your things and place them in front of the door, have all of your work clothes laid out and make sure to have toothpaste on your toothbrush so that nothing will slow you down. Bfast was even packed and ready for me to grab.
Bfast for the last 3 weeks: Egg sandwich with jam. 2 whole wheat TOASTED slices of bread, an egg and raspberry jam. I am a creature of habit.
What I wanted to talk about are battle wounds from working out. I didn’t do a close up on those suckers of mine because they are gross looking close up but do you see those lovely calluses on my hand? They are 3d in real life and both hands have about 4.
I remember when Billy held my hand for the first time as he was gazing into my eyes about to profess his love he said….’How the heck did you get those crazy calluses?’
I told him it was all of the manual labor I do and my favorite ice cream spoon leaves evidence of its overuse.
Why do I have these? I guess from the ellipctical, weights and the bike….maybe I grip on too tightly or something.
What are some battle wounds you have from working out? Missing toe nails, chaffing marks, ever fallen while running?
Anyone wear gloves when they lift to prevent those beautiful calluses that I have?
What was/is your workout today?
