The New Year and Losing Weight.


Muscle Man

Sitting here with the rain outside limiting my action
is that a voice I hear that gives me satisfaction
and it’s not from someone else but I hear it from within
telling me it is time to write but where do I begin
I could write about the New Year but that’s already done
with blogs galore in the fore espousing words as one
or about the rain that falls harder than before
hard enough to stop me from going out my door
but the rain is old news and it’s time for something new
but so far my brain is dead and doesn’t have a clue
I could reminisce of the year gone by but that is somebody’s news
or of the things I want to try many of which are new
many though are very old and I have tried them all before
and all of my good intentions have floated out the door
I have some resolutions so I could talk about them
one of which is to use the gym which is just around the bend
not far at all from my house a short drive it will take
the exercise is what I need the pounds I then can slate
and to cut back on my eating to help towards that score
of one hundred and fifty pounds and not a kilo more
that’s only seventeen pounds to lose most of which is fat
to replace it with the muscle that is hidden under that
but I am a man obsessed with losing as much as I can
so hiking the trails as I like to do is all a part of that plan
now all I have to do is find the will to move
and put the plan in action and get into the groove
of exercising three times a week to build the muscles more
even though I know that it will make me very sore
no pain no gain is how the saying goes
so I just need to bite the bullet and get up on my toes
work out and sweat and grunt and groan to lose a little weight
although of course the bottom line the effort I just hate
to eat less and work out more sounds just like a plan
all it takes is that first step with everything at hand
the gym is there and the larder stocked with foods of the lighter kind
so the only thing I have to do is to get myself in line
now that I have worked out a plan to take off all of the weight
I think tomorrow I will start let’s make it a date
the sooner that tomorrow comes you can be sure
I will be heading back round the bend to the gymnasium door.

  1. Good luck with your resolution to visit the gym more often, Francis. I’ve had that one on my list for years with only sporadic success. Hiking the trails sounds like good exercise but I think a healthy diet plays a big part too.
