So Mary and i went to Comicon. I went to go see the creator of Questionable Content which is an awesome webcomic that i love, but i could not find him anywhere. But i did get to stalk Wil Wheaton for a while, though i did not get to hug him which is what i wanted to do. I also found a comic called… wait for it…. Zombie Jesus! Thats right.. ZOMBIE FUCKING JESUS! i heart nerds and geeks… i heart comics.. i heart comicon.. YAY!
It is unbelievably difficult for me to type right now. My arms are extreemly weak. Today i had my one free personal training session. The lady while nice, introduced herself with a limp handshake, and later she told me way too much about her small dogs. This of course meant there was no way i could ever actually like her. She showed me how to use several of the machines and then asked what specificly i would like to work on. And as everyone knows.. i hate my arms. She showed me several machines that would work my arms, and several exercises for toning. One of these is called the plank. ( you lie face down on mat resting on the forearms, palms flat on the floor. Push off the floor, raising up onto toes and resting on the elbows and hold for 20 -30 seconds) Now i was fine doing this, i mean it was difficult but doable. She then asked me to push myself up onto my arms so that my arms would be straight and then go back to the resting position to hold for another 20 seconds. I pushed one arm straight, and tried in vain to get the other to work. I didnt just say ” oh i can’t do that” i gave it a few honest tries and it just wasnt going to happen without putitng my knee down. So i told her this. She responded with ” oh you can do it.. just try.. shift your weight.. you can do it” I looked at her with kind eyes and told her that i could not. What i wanted to say was ” look skinny bitch i would like to see you lift 260 lbs with one arm.. oh what?? you can’t? then how the hell do you expect the fat out of shape girl to do it???” But obviously i did not. Instead i tried again, and after failing to do it the 4th time she gave up her inspirational urging and let me use my knee. We went on to do more arm things, and then she tried to convince me to sign up for more sessions at $50 per 20 mins. I kindly informed her that i could not fit that into my budget. Which is true, but i wasnt going to give her that kind of money.. weak hand shakes AND little dogs.. please. *sigh* I shall go crawl to my bed now, and hope that i will beable to lift my arms in the morning. Yay fit.
