“Hey, man, good talking to you but I’m about to head into the gym,” I told one of my impossibly fit friends.
“Word?” he asked.
“Good, man. I’m glad you’re getting back in there.”
“…Yeah,” I said, too embarrassed to tell him that I’d been going to the gym every day for the past three years.
You know what sucks? The fact that I can work out every day and have it not make a damn difference.
It’s bullsh*t that I have to sweat and work my body to exhaustion and eat healthy if I want to see any real results. Being a stubborn type, I’ve been trying to buck this trend for years — playing basketball and lifting weights, then eating at buffets and gorging on cinnamon rolls — but I started off 2018 with the hopes of finally finding something that would help me trim down.
