The Naughty Elves
Tuesday, December 14, 2010
The naughty elves are at it again. It wasn't enough that they got into my closet and shrunk all my clothes. No, they watch as I so very carefully eat lean and clean, step-up my cardio and painstakingly perform my strengthtraining. They lie in wait, and as I excitedly make my way to the scale to see the fruit of my many labors; they use their evil magic to prevent the numbers from moving. I ignore them and continue in my quest. They don't like being ignored. Next, they attack my left shin causing splints so painful that I can't go to my beloved Zumba classes and twist the inside of my left knee. I freeze them with ice packs and keep them at bay with Bengay and ace bandages. I use the stationary bike until I heal. They won't dissuade me from my goal! They are clever and devious these elves, but I am driven. The next 2 days I have Christmas parties to attend. I wonder what those mischievious elves are planning? No matter, I'll be ready. I won't lose sight of the amazing present that I intend to gift myself - a holiday season of healthy habits to help me reach my goals.
