A summary of exercise and the Fat Suit!

Exercise has always been my archnemesis.    Working out has a way of making me feel better and worse about myself simultaneously.  We all know the drill….calories in balanced with calories out.  I have tried a variety of cardiovascular pursuits and have come to one conclusion….I need to eat less.

First there was yoga.  Stretch your body in an assortment of poses – most resembling an animal…or a piece of furniture.  This would be where the problem arose.  In a room of tables, I was the only ottoman.  While the wispy women in the front were doing tree…I was doing overgrown shrub.  Ignorance to how I looked was impossible.  Mirrors were everywhere.  It confirmed in my mind that an apple can never be a tree.
