The 30-Day Knife in the Back Fitness Plan
:bounce:

I gotta ring my own bell here. I'm in great physical condition.

For the past month since the dreadful woman departed, I've been swimming, lifting weights, walking dogs, running around with other fools in the park. I've been eating healthful meals -- small portions.

I don't think I've lost weight, but I noticed getting out of the shower a complete lack of... you know, extra. No belly, no love handles. There's muscle tone and stuff.

I think I'll write a book: "Getting in Shape by Getting Screwed: The 30-Day Knife in the Back Fitness Plan." :D

1. Oh, I'll second that.
I got in marvelous shape over the summer in the name of attracting women. The trick is to keep it going once you find someone new. :D

3. Actually it's just been
to do something positive with the energy. I'm still stewing in my own juices from time to time, but mostly I'm delighted by having my life back.

The last thing I'm thinking about is attracting women. That's already happening anyhow (the "fresh meat quotient") in this little burg.












OK, sometimes I'm thinking about attracting women. :evilgrin: But NO MORE CRAZIES!

4. Yeah, well, that's how it started...
and then comes the "Dammit, I need to get in shape phase," followed by the "Hey, this could work to my advantage" phase.

And yes on the NO MORE CRAZIES!! :D :toast:

Sometimes you just need to burn off some irritation with what I call "muscle relief."

And yeah, DU's gonna chip in and buy you a new crazy filter. There seems to have been a defect in the one you were using. x(

5. Eighteen pounds after getting dumped.
Regained it; re-dumped, lost it again. Regained some; again approached (joy!) and then dumped for good with a few curses to make it special(joy gone), weight back on the way down. Size four again. Yippee. Even better: husband wants me out of the house. Size two here I come.

11. what i like is
that when you are in those ''delicate'' situations -- your fat isn't moving in one direction while you move in the other.

12. After a particularly bad breakup...
...I spent the best part of a month just lying in bed, listening to The Cure and The Smiths, eating little and generally staring at the wall in a pathetic manner. I lost about 20 lbs and looked about the best I ever had.

This resulted in a new and better relationship that made me so content and happy I put 30 lbs on. Oh well.

17. Oh yeah.
12 pounds lost in two weeks after getting dumped. Ate nothing, drank Ensure and Slimfast to stay alive.

Of course, now I look fantastic and I have the best SO in the world. :D
