Thoughts from an ADHD workout

I might have missed a few hundred workouts over the holidays.  Like every other chubby person out there, I jumped on the New Year's Resolution bandwagon.  My mental play by play follows.  Don't judge.  Seriously.  It's not nice.

  • Let's do this.
  • No, seriously, I can totally do this.  I just need to buckle down and lose those pounds.
  • Oh, look, a basketball game.
  • Which way are we walking today? 
  • Ooh, there's people.  Let's go this way.
  • Music.  I need music.
  • I should come every day this week.
  • Ooh, Facebook.  I have a message.
  • Music.  Must have music.
  • This is easy. 
  • Yep, start strong.
  • I might have a salad tomorrow.  This healthy stuff is easy.
  • Why don't I do this more?
  • Whoa.  That guy walks funny.
  • 2 points!  Good job guys!
  • I could never be a physical therapist!  I can't get over how funny that guy walks!
  • Why are all these old people walking so slow?!?
  • How long have I been walking?
  • My timer must be wrong.
  • I like this song!
  • What is up with that guy's hip?!?
  • I think I run funny.
  • I could come back tomorrow.
  • If I run funny, how can I be so critical of someone else's gait?
  • Supper.  Hmm, I don't have a clue.
  • Wow.  This is harder than I remember.
  • Defense, guys!  Come on!!
  • I think I know her.
  • Maybe I should order a pizza.
  • Nope.  That's not her.
  • Where did that little old lady come from?
  • Dude.  She's kicking my butt.
  • I HATE this song.
  • I can totally beat her.
  • I'm sweating. 
  • My muscles hurt.
  • Crap.  Now we're walking beside each other.
  • This is awkward.  It looks like we're together.
  • A pizza might be good.
  • Yes, I got her.  Can't beat me.
  • When did I start breathing this hard?
  • Tomorrow's no good.
  • Pizza.  Definitely pizza.
  • Where'd the hip guy go?
  • Is that me I can hear breathing.
  • There's where I started.
  • Yeah, the day after tomorrow is no good either.
  • I didn't even know I had a muscle there.
  • I made it.
  • Crap.  My keys are over there.
  • Where's the car.
  • How could I have gained weight in my legs?!?  They feel like they weigh 100 pounds each.
  • Almost. . .t h e r e. . .
  • My gym membership has to expire eventually. . .
Obviously, I haven't yet recovered enough to go back.  It's a mental and physical workout when you have ADHD. . . : )
