Feeling The Burn

Posted by Daniel on May 12, 2009

It’s official…I just can’t seem to do the exercise/diet thing right.

As summer draws nigh, one tends to focus on getting into better shape.  After all, there are going to be boat trips up to the lake, hiking and other activities that require the doll to remove his blouse.

And right now, that’s paramount to fat-flashing…not to mention the impending ridicule from those who might mistake me for some beached whale.

So we are both trying to get into better shape before string bikini season goes into full swing.

Seth is doing much better at it than I am, as he has a bit more time to devote to his exercise regime.  Since I work six days a week, the very LAST thing I want to do on my Sunday off is exercise.

So Seth gets this idea to buy us two of those blue neoprene waist belts that are supposed to burn off the fat as you go through your normal day.

I’ve tried this before and it actually did help.

This time, however, turned out to be a bit more of a challenge.

More to the point, it seemed to work TOO well.


Oh, it burned the fat alright.  In fact, this time it actually caused blisters that looked like second degree burns.

There appeared to be two very obvious blisters on my side just under where the velcro was.

All I wanted was to help burn off a bit of the love handles, you know, so I wouldn’t look like I was wearing water wings as a belt.

In the end, where I started off wanting to wear a fat-burning belt to melt away the Doritos and Little Debbies I’d retained over the winter, now I’m sporting some very unattractive bandages to aid in the healing of the fruits of my labors.

This is what I get for going against my life-long mantra…

A Waist Is A Terrible Thing To Mind!!!!

    Ah, I see that Seth is finally getting his revenge for those “accidental” injuries that Daniel keeps inflicting upon him.
    (That’s it Seth, stand up for yourself… Revenge is sweet, isn’t it?)
