I went to the gym on Monday and did a chest and triceps workout. It wasn't much, but I'm just getting back into it. I think this is only the 2nd time I've done this workout in about a year. I guess I didn't push it hard enough because I haven't been sore from it like I was the last time I did this.

I think I must be frowning while I'm working out. People keep getting out of my way. Except this one black kid who seemed to want to be the alpha dog in the gym. He's too young and too skinny to be the alpha anything, but that's the thing about youth, along with the abundant energy and pride comes an abundant stupidity. Anyway, I didn't clash with him, but it was close. I'll just say I considered it.

And that's the thing about maturity. You think about whether or not a fight is worth the trouble and weigh all the factors. It has to be worth it to go to that much trouble.

I'm about to head home for Thanksgiving. We have no special plans except to try and relax. We don't plan to see anyone or do anything or go anywhere.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving this year?


  1. "Anyway, I didn't clash with him, but it was close. I'll just say I considered it." Yeah, and then he pulls a gun out on you!

    No plans for Thanksgiving. Just a normal day. Is it the 24th or 25th? I never remember.
    I always think it's the same date for Christmas.

    Hope you have a relaxing time though.

  2. I plan to eat...freely! Bravo for getting to the gym. I had the same intention, but I failed!

  3. Maturity ... funny thing about that is ... your "I don't give a shit factor" takes over. But not giving a shit makes for a prettier face.

  4. Ute, nobody has a gun in the gym. There's nowhere to hide one. Thanksgiving is the last Thursday, or third Thursday, I can't remember which. Anyway, this year it worked out to be the 24th. So far I have watched a lot of football and done minimal work around the yard.

    SavvyFoodies, I got to the gym, but I have undone my workout with the junk I've been eating for Thanksgiving. Someone bought a bag of peanut M&Ms and I found it.

    Alana, yeah, I didn't really care until he started to crowd me while I was doing nose busters on the bench. That's when I considered reaching back and flipping his weights out of my area and over towards him.

  5. Well... my TGiving plan WAS to relax and get the new house organized. But, the baby caught a stomach virus on Tuesday. So... Minxy got absolutely NO relaxation and NO organization done. Worst 4-day weekend of my life. I'd have rather been at work. (And you know how I feel about work!)

  6. Hey! Hope you had a relaxed thanks giving!!!

    Glad you didn't get into a fight at the gym :0)

  7. Minxy, I read about that on your blog. That SO sucks! Sorry to hear you went through that for Thanksgiving. We had some sort of stomach bug at our house, too.

    AlleyCat, thanks, we watched a lot of football and relaxed. Yeah, no fist fight at the gym. I don't need the hassle of that. :-)
