Madonna and the armies of hell.



I like working out, there I've admitted it. I like going to the gym and doing weights. I get a stupid thrill out of upping a weight. or cranking out that extra rep.
I like it when my legs wobble and shake under the strain of that last rep. I like learning new moves, I like the push press, it's interesting. I don't mind sweating, I don't mind rows, I do mind dips, and I'm very bad at them, but I still do them. I'm learning how to do kipping pull ups, ouch. I don't mind pain the next day. I super like that I don't have bingo wings. I like seeing muscle develop. It amuses the hell out of me that I-Fatmammycat- am frequently the ONLY female in the free weights section of the gym and that sometimes teenage boys can be spotted counting the weights I am using and immediately match me (teenage boys are strong) I like that some of the guys in the gym who used to smirk behind my aching back and pink face now nod at me and say hello. I like that I can do lunges all around the place without any of them batting an eyelid these days and I was much pleased to notice two guys were doing the same moves I recognised from CrossFit (We're not worthy! We're not worthy!) the other day.
I feel a bit deflated on days I don't go.
So yeah, I'm a total unapologetic gym rat.
Where am I going with this?
Well I'm going straight over to Madonna actually and I am going to gaze at that photo again.
Madonna is a pretty strict yoga person and is as fit as a fiddle I'd say, but sweet Jesus, her arms? I know it's an unflattering picture, but sweet Jesus, her arms.
I believe this is what some folk call too much of a good thing.
I hope when I'm Madonna's age I'm in as good shape as she is, but I also hope I don't look like skeletor.
Looking like the walking dead, I'm very much against that.

She also doesn't eat anything but brown rice and steamed vegetables, I'm told. That might not be literally true, but I bet she doesn't get any joy out of eating. Blech.

I'm just back from town where I had tempura black pepper squid, hoi sin duck and spicy egg noodles with chilli, green peppers and beef. The idea of only brown rice and steamed veggies leaves me rigid with horror.
Good god I'm fit to burst.

Somehow I don't think you'll ever end up with arms like Madonna, FMC, given your dedication.

And curse you for making me hungry again at one in the morning. For the record, I've already had shredded duck pancakes tonight in my favourite West End Chinese restaurant.

No additional time expended on the fitness center, no back pain simply because of to
numerous crunches or other stomach workout routines and no far much more sweaty workouts merely to guarantee that your abs appear
excellent.
