Me calls friend: hey where are you??
Friend: I am at festival city (it’s a mall we were planning to go to)
Me: How could you do this to me I am gonna kill you..
Friend: you weren’t replying my messages and you didn’t pick my call.
Me: Shoot! I was wearing socks when you called and then I forgot to call back.
Me: Yea..um…i went to the gym
Friend: Shut up!! Really?? o my God I’m so happy for you..
I could literally picture tears of joy running down her cheeks..
Told her the whole thing and she was so excited. And so was Sam.
I little background of gym chronicles.
I was on steroids (prednisone) for 2.5 years straight until they started doing serious damage.
And this is what steroids do to you..
I could literally eat a horse..literally.
My friend said please don’t eat furniture..stop at furniture.
I turned into a cloud… I am not even kidding.
And it was weird. for weeks I was like..look at me steroids can do nothing to me…and BAM!!
1 day I woke up with added 20 kgs, Elvis Presley side burns, acne, bruises all of them!
Oh and don’t forget the cramps..
Now the medication was removed and doctors said the weight and all will go..i said okay I trust you, did I have choice??
So, I, gradually started deflating
One fine day my body fat told me “i am breaking up with you”
These words never sounded sweeter..
But I pretended to be sad, didn’t want to piss him off, “o my God, so are you leaving??”
Me: I am gonna miss you, you made me look …umm… so fluffy..
Fat: oh no no no (Jesse Eisenberg style)..you won’t miss me I am just relocating…i am not leaving your body..
Me: wait ..what!!!
Fat : yea..i still love you..
It just relocated to areas of its own choice..horrible.
Take a football..now put a grape on it..thats what I looked like.
Turns out the rest I will have to fix. I will have to workout and stop eating like a raccoon for a change.
And this could serve as an excuse to get out of my cave. I was having terrible social anxiety.
My friends have been really worried about me lately, so it was a great news for them.
I have gone to gym thrice in 2 days already…and twice to the reception with problems. Told them I don’t want a fuss but they should know.
Forgot to tell them about missing punching bag… that was serving as a gym magnet. You look at it and it Thrills you, shoots up your motivation.
It’s weird. But it kinda does that.
