3000 Lightning Strikes and Really Sore Biceps

Drove through a cast iron beyotch of a storm on the way home from work tonight. Tops of the storm towers were up to 49,000 feet. (According to WSB meterologist extraordiaire Kirk Melish.) That's pretty dang high. Lightning was striking all around me... the rain was falling in horizontal sheets and the wind was amazing. I said out loud inside my car "Dang." (That's what we southern girls say out loud when something is Most Impressive.)

But I made it home. (Call CNN.)

I considered, briefly, heading to the gym during the enduring monsoon but thought better of it... not only due to the fact that I'd be putting myself in immediate peril, but due to the fact that my body is SHOUTING LOUDLY that it hurts. Yes, I joined a gym last week... YES, I'm working out now and YES I really enjoy it. But my muscles that normally aren't used during my daily Insurance Nerd-SuperGirl duties are muttering and COMPLAINING LOUDLY..

My biceps are bitching.
My quads are quibbling.
My glutes are..... grumbling....

BUT (damnit) I'm going to lose 10 lbs and be less jiggly if it KILLS me (and it just might).
But the lightning won't be killing me. (At least not tonight.)

You are so funny. Some things are just not worth it. :)

Biceps bitching.
I think mine might bitch if I just drove in the area of the gym. I really must soon.... Darn it.
