Quick Blurb on being Cocky

So I recently I have been working out again. I used to be quite the worker out prior to being diagnosed with juvenile diabetes three years ago. Finally I have gotten a better handle on blood sugar and I can work out again.

In any case, I have been doing this regularly for last three weeks. Im at that point where you are beginning to see changes in your body. Frankly, I have been getting a little cocky. Checkin myself out in the mirror more (Who's looking good.. THIS GUY!)

So I am at the elevator going into my gym, feelin all cocky. THere are mirrored doors on the elevator, so I am taking a moment to check myself out.

The doors open, I step forward and my stomach drops through my balls. I am eyeball to eyeball with Mike Tyson. He has just completed his Saturday morning
work out.

The feeling was quite similar to, I would imagine, going for a swim in a neighborhood pool only to find yourself eyeball to eyeball with a Great White.

He passed and I suddenly decided I needed a least a few more days in the gym before I can get cocky again.

OK...ok...that is such an LA moment, I don't even know where to begin. ;-

Happy 500th BTW!

I usually think I look okay until I turn on the television and notice everyone on it seems kind of buff, but I always blame my apartment for having "skinny mirrors", or turn off the television and eat junk food depressed.

Just tell yourself this: Who cares if Tyson is uber-buff? I'm willing to bet that when you open your mouth and speak, you don't have Tyson's girly voice and lisp.
.... and I wasn't feeling cocky, but I did feel like dancing a mini-jig last week when I tried on my pre-baby jeans and they fit! Woo Hoo! I love my Lil Man and BabyGirl, but sheesh... these kiddos have been murder on my body.

Yes, Kvatch.. I moved over to the starfucker gym to keep myself motivated... as you will see in the next post.

Thanks for the kudos.. your posts on disappearing bloggers re-inspired me.

Lew, I went started going to the Starfucker gym for the exact reason. But folks lets get real... in a Beautiful Mind, Russell Crowe is all buff... just like every scientist I have met.

Tina well done with jeans... as everyone knows.. you fucking rock!
