I have trouble sitting on the pot, going up and down stairs and getting off the couch... this would be the humpy (NID) part of the "get over the hump" section of returning to fitness. Someone yesterday said congratulations for getting over the worst part (the first day at Cross Fit)... someone else said comeback the worst part is day two. I'm not going to work out today... I'm working but I can imagine that it would be very hard to do more squats right now. (NID - Not In Dictionary notation means just that and I'm using it anyway and making up a word. There are plenty of cool words that I don't know about that would probably work but that's fodder for another day.)
I dig my "F Word" mantra... I came upon this by "accident" Funny how now that I'm actually finally writing... every word is packed full of more to write about! i.e. no accidents. Since I'm making this all up as I go, I'm going to use italics for all the side comments that come to me that I feel are worth sharing as I go along...the birth of the answer to "Why the heck is she using italics? or What does it mean when she uses italics? Or what do the italics mean?" questions that will surely come later.
Anyway... I started playing around with words that start with the letter F as a mantra... I wanted to stop my thoughts from obsessing on weight, eating, watching thin people, watching fat people, need to loose, you REALLY need to do something fatso, yadda yadda.... so I started to repeat "Fit, Firm, Flexible, & Foxy" It didn't take long for my mind to continue finding fabulous fun F words... Fantastic, Feisty, Fierce, Fearless, Faithful, Focused, Funny, Fashionable, Famous, Free, Fulfilled, just to name a few. You get the picture... your mind right now is thinking of more super F words... huh!? What a great letter for words that rock as positive thought fodder. I've read a lot of stuff... all taken with heavy doses of salt I don't need to name names but if thoughts do create your reality then F words are awesome. I'm sure other letters have their great words as well but just off the top F words rock. More keep coming, by the way... they just pop in my head at the weirdest times oh... by the way... you're also FLOWING... OMG, yes I am! Thanks Universe!
I have to mention one of my favorites and most flexible F words... drum roll... FUCK! There was some email blast that went around years ago that identified, from a grammar perspective, how fuck is the most flexible word in the English language. Dig that! Maybe George had a riff on that I could find on You Tube, George Karlin, that is!
Go ahead and steal my F word mantra idea... there's plenty of words to go around we are so Fortunate that way! I do think it's OK to tag another word on with an F word... like Filthy Rich... that works for me too!

Did that make you feel better?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
