Oh no Aniki! Sad
Thank you for the reminder that my lazy arse has not been to gym in three weeks.

Summer exhausts me - heat removes my will to do more than breathe. I'm much more energized in WINTER!

Yo, Ani,

You and me both, Hon! I hate summer and always have. By the time I finished cleaning the kitchen this afternoon, my hair was soaked with perspiration. The combination of 86 degree temps, high humidity and hot flashes had mild mannered redhen snarling like a Tasmanian Devil. GGGRRRRR!

Exercise? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Hey, red!

After suffering from heat stroke, I am no longer able to tolerate hot weather and wilt like a crocus over a foot-high flame.

Thanks for the inspiration!  I'm totally gonna put on my salsa tunes and bust it out.  At least one of the workouts.  Baby steps! Wink

Hola amiga!

I hate pushups, planks and burpees but darn it they're so efficient!

Hope you are well.

Have a great day Aniki!!!

Hola Siempre!

Yo tambien, amiga. If insomnia and worrying aided weight loss, I'd be UNDERweight! 

Quiero el mismo para ti!
