I love coffee and I love pretending to be fit so I thought this was an ideal logo for me. I don’t function well in the morning without my first cup of exhilaration. And I know I should work out in the morning ’cause any other time of day is out of the question for me (just because I’m lazy). But in my mind I convince myself that drinking a pot of coffee before working out is a really bad idea so working out never seems to materialize but I sure do think about it a lot.
There’s the rapid heartbeat, sweating, panting and loss of conscientiousness just from thinkin’ about the work out. Ya have a pot of coffee and the adrenaline starts flowing fast, like really fast. As in, my mind is a blur and my hands are twitchin’. I better sit down a minute to finish this last cup. Let’s turn on the workout channel so I can at the very least say I know what some of the moves are. Then when I’m in a group of fitness guru’s I can join in on the conversation and sound like an expert.
I can talk about how me and my fitness partner Jane…(Fonda; they don’t need to know I watch her on TV) burned off major calories with a new workout that works the upper, lower, middle, sides, butt and brain all at the same time. I’ll say it in my most bubbly of voices and throw in a couple of “Oh my goshes” just to be convincing. I’ll walk around in yoga pants and a sports bra and other people will be envious of my obvious dedication to my overall health and well-being.
As I’m waiting in line for a double scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream, I can tell the others behind me how I’m treating myself today because it’s a cheat day or because I worked out extra hard (meaning I watched two episodes of Jane’s workout). I’ll pretend I’m really sore and sound exhausted as I massage my shoulder muscles. Oh and can I get an iced coffee with that ice cream order.
All this pretending to be fit really is hard work. I wonder what it would be like to have fitness as a hobby instead of reading? Coffee is so much easier, just drink, enjoy and you still get the rapid heartbeat. I wonder how many calories that burns off, hmmm. Does anyone do coffee AND fitness at the same time? That just sounds crazy to me.
