I have made a grave error.

I asked my husband to train me and whip my behind into shape.

I already regret my decision.

I’ve gotten this *workout* buzz about 4 times since we’ve been married, I’d say. I last maybe three weeks and then call it quits after I lose two pounds and see some lil muscles forming. THIS TIME WILL BE DIFFERENT. Yes, I’ve said this before, but I really actually think I might possibly be a little more motivated this go round! I’ve done just over a week of his daily workouts. I am sore all over and would prefer to get around via wheelchair right now, but alas. I’m also counting my macros which I actually hate more than the working out. I didn’t need a lil app to tell me I eat more carbs than I should – I KNOW, OK, IT’S CALLED AN ADDICTION AND I’M WORKING ON IT.
