Chiseled

On Thursday I had my first class of "Chiseled", a weight training class offered through the university. Yes, it's called chiseled...which is what I will be in just six short weeks.

Even though I kept up with the rest of the class, I had to cheat my way through more than a few of the exercises and shook so much that I nearly fell over several times. Meanwhile, fifty-year-old women floated gracefully beside me, effortlessly lifting one another into the air with one arm.

By the end of the class, I was feeling very sweaty and humble despite being more chiseled than I was a mere 50 minutes before. As I bent over to pick up my equipment, I was so tired that I somehow lost control of my jaw. Time slowed as chewing gum fell from my mouth and landed on top of one of the weights. I was too mortified to look around and see if anyone noticed as I peeled my gum from the free weight.
......
Hopefully nobody was looking but still...why do I have to be the gross kid at Chiseled?

The funny part to me is that from now on you will imagine the gum of a million strangers on your free weights and be forced to bring sanitizer wipes with you to the gym so you can work out.
Ah, your complexes. How I miss them.

Where did you find that picture? I touch weights like those everyday.
If it makes you feel better I fell on my knees at the dump today! Tell me that's not gross. In shorts I might add.

The class was 4 or 5 days ago and she's still hobbling around like she don't got no knees. And she's planning on going running tomorrow. All I have to say is I better not get a call at work cause she needs me to come pick her up from some city pathway. My suggestion: run within hobbling distance of a bus route.

Hey, I didn't know you were doing that! WTG! I would SO do something like that with the gum.
