The downside of being 3/4 Eastern European

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

I can do aerobic exercises until the cows come home, and while it does lovely things for my heart it does absolutely bubkes for my butt (well, it probably does good things for my butt, as well, but at an absolutely glacial pace).

I lift weights, however, and suddenly I step on the scale and I'm down two pounds. This is what happens when you come from a people who bred their women to be able to pull a plow in case they had to eat the ox during the winter. Now if I can just keep it up, I'll be a happy camper.
