Workout Routine


   A handful of classes away from zipping up those jeans, I sashay through the aerobics routine. The blasting disco beat keeps my mind clear as fog. I can’t hack the end, though. This five-minute silence on the mat just keeps killing you.


Where does it hurt?    Answer #16

    1. Thanks, Angie! Assuming this is one part laughter, one part pity and one part commiseration?

  4. This made me laugh because I DESPISE those five minutes of silence on the mat at the end of workout videos. It kills me every time. Feels like such a waste of time. Great post.

    1. So glad for the laugh, CC. It was when my husband was dying, and as soon as I hit the mat, tears would come - so embarrassing. Now I'm sticking with the elliptical : )

  7. This is so true. Sometimes not having time to assess the situation is bliss. I don't like jeans but I wear them. They are unforgiving of a weight gain.

    1. Thanks, Ann. It's taken me a long long time to let quiet thoughts back in. The jeans are now a long-lost goal : )

  8. Yes! Yoga was nearly torture for me -- all that quiet!

  9. XD Isn't it so all so true, though? I'm still trying to lose that Xmas cookie weight, and I don't think I'm sashaying any closer to zipping into my old jeans.

  13. I love the pun at the end, presuming you were referring "corpse pose"!

    1. Thanks for the love, Kay! That's what I love about flash fiction, it can go pretty much anywhere. I didn't have 'corpse pose' In my conscious mind, but it does work, doesn't it?

  14. That five minute silence when the thoughts rush back in - scary. Great take - could see the sashaying.

    1. Yeah, glad you got the scary, and you should be grateful you really can't see the sashaying (hehehe), especially these days. Thank you so much, Sarah!

  15. The word sashay in that sentence is hilarious! So casual-- like you're there but you just don't care.

  16. The five minutes of silence at the end is where I remember how hungry I am, and think about how a nice steak and mashed potatoes and a glass or three of wine would go over, not to mention desert... I swear I actually gain weight in those 5 minutes. Awesomely amusing take on the ultimate question, Kymm - thanks for linking it up!
