My Friend Jim (Gym) … or not!

I’ve got a friend in Jim
He works me really hard
Reminds me that chocolate and wine
Are just the same as lard

He pounds the muscle mighty
And pumps the iron for sure
Then stands round laughing widely
When I’ve dropped dead on the floor

Or chuckles when I’m groaning
In his hell hall of fame
For Jim ain’t quite a normal friend
And shouts “JUST UP YOUR GAME”

And with the stick he beats me
For carrots he will say
Are “treats when you have lost that lard”
And that’s some time away!!

And so we’ve reached a compromise
He nags and I concede
For whilst he’s quite some bully
I know he’s what I need!

Workout Wobbles

The lure of the duvet
The weight of your legs
When the gym comes a calling
Or swimming pool begs
And any old reason
Just pops in your head
To sleep a bit longer
And stay in your bed!

Yet lash out at temptation
Resist any urge
To languor and linger
Let its will not be heard
Nor conceded to; obeyed
For the longer you stay
Under cover the harder
You’ll find that workout today!

So put your mind to it
Jump up and resolve
To beat any decoys
That simply don’t solve
The matter before you
The need to get fit
And with it more healthy
Be strong and don’t quit!!!!

Oh and note to self – maybe don’t use writing a poem about it as an excuse not to go! 🙂

Big Bellies; Floppy Boobs!

Big bellies; floppy boobs
The need to thin on down
But is that what it’s all about
To have the stick-thin crown?

Is it all about the image?
Or more so for self-care
To disregard what the mirror says
Instead for how we fare

Accepting that some squidyness
Along with cushioned tums
Is part of life and much better
Than living on mere crumbs!

Whilst focussing on health not fat
On fitness; feeling great
On cherishing what’s underneath
Hearts, minds and other states

Not centring on measurements
Or even size zero
But more intent on how we feel
For hale and hearty hero

So big bellies; floppy boobs
Take courage; ditch the scales
Don’t care what mirror or world says
But more your health details!
