The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    CarolinaGirl,

    I love procastinating. It's my favourite activity, after lifting of course. It's amazing what work you find out you really don't need to do if you procastinate long enough.

    Ah, the beer was in the back of the fridge, behind the left over beef, ham, chicken and other goodies. And really it is only for guests so you are certainly welcome to it next time.


    Good luck on the paper. Please stay longer next time. We can put our feet up on the table, chat, discuss old times and generally just hang out.

    Mik: Good! You need to be a buff Mik by summer and it wasn't a cheat day.

    HomeYield: Absolutely have all the beers you want. It's about time I got rid of the stale ones and bought new.


    Diet:
    • Diet's Consistency Check: --|-/---|----///-------/-//-/-/-//|-

      Diet was low in calories, but no cheating occured. My bloated feeling is starting to go away.

      M1: Protein & carb shake

    My daughter is finally making it into the tween stage. She got her first zit. She maybe proud of it at the moment since she can start to use more of her mommy's stuff, but she is not going to like it a few years.

    You realize that this officially means that it is now only a matter of time until you have to start grilling young suitors in the pre-date living room ritual, putting the fear of God (actually, strike that... putting the fear of YOU) into them so they won't try anything funny.

    Absolutely. Her dating scene currently is being handle by her mom but it won't be long until I need to step up to the plate, bat in hand.

    I use to want to strong enough to be able to carry her out the door. Now it's to be big enough to actually back up the threats I hurl at the punks who come knocking at the door. At 165, that's not going to do it.

    That's ok.

    Just complain constantly about how you never have time to spend at the shooting range anymore between the demands of your parole officer and your compulsory anger-management and Homicidal Tendencies Support Group meetings. Explain that this is a real shame because you have LOTS of guns. Big ones.

    Then elucidate upon the advantages of a hollowpoint bullet in generating tissue damage, pausing in the middle to toss out innocuous phrases like "So you'll have her home by 10. Right???"

    If you can, twitch one eye slightly the whole time, too.

    I don't want to worry you too much, but chances are pretty good that you won't even know what she's up to unless she wants you to know

    Unfortunately, this is so true. That's why it a two prong attack. Mommy can play the nice cop, while daddy plays the bad cop. It's not fun being the heavy, but someone has to do it. :evillaugh



    p.s. Kids are more resilient then we sometimes give them credit. Even though we might not want certain things to happen, I know they will happen regardless. Our hope is that we've prepared her for those things when it's time for her to be prepared.

    I have your number, you will be called. As much food and beer will of course be provided for your consumption. Beating punks senseless is just the kind of exercise one needs to build up an appetite for growth.
