The Gym

One of my friends had sent this in an email and I thought it was worth sharing with all instead of forwarding it to a selected few:

The Gym
Bulging belly, sagging chest
The misery Nature does manifest
Those cravings you used to give in
Were never short of committing a sin

But as you enter the local gym
Conjure up images of a torso - trim
You venture inside with a positive mind
Only to find…its more than a grind

The instructor guides you in and out
Every part of your body seems to shout
If only you could resist those treats
You wouldn't be sweating to his beats

You ask him "How much time would it take??"
The extra cheese you have to forsake !!
He glances at you with half a smile & sympathy
You guess his reply as though - Its telepathy

Workout's Finished… You praise the Lord
Your sadistic mentor had hung a sword
Raising up your tee…you glance at your belly
Its still the same – hairy, stinky and swelly

Packing stuff..you tread back home
Don't wanna rest till you flatten your dome
Something inside haunts you in despair
"PREVENTION is always better than REPAIR"

Very cute! I have had such a hard time fitting the gym in while I am visiting my family. I am trying to work from home while seeing everyone at the same time. It's 3 am and I am winding down.
