As of two weeks ago, I hadn’t worked out since Mona and I started dating in May.
Why? Eh, who knows? I needed a break, my schedule was all kooky. Take your pick.
However, I needed to NOT slide back too much. I didn’t want to “lose my gains” as they say.
Also… ok I’ll admit… I enjoy being physically admired by Mona. She likes to grab my arms/shoulders/chest.
And I’d like to keep that going. Physical attraction is important in a relationship. I don’t want to give Mona cause to be let down that I no longer had something that she really liked about me.
So I’m on week 2 back at the gym. Yesterday was Leg Day, and OUCH, my legs hurt. I stretched some and even went light on the weight but being sore somewhat is unavoidable.
And you know, I like being sore. Means I’m working hard at it. I’m putting in some good effort, I’m hustling, I’m growing.
