First of all, let me just get this out of the way. I'm sorry. There, I said it. Now we can both move on.

I know that you've been there all these years, helping me grow. I feel that since I've known you my spinal and emotional stability has never been better. The respect that we have for each other is something to be is all too clear that others envy what we once had. These feelings will always be true, regardless of what happens next.

Because of all the goodness we shared, I'm not sure why I did what I did. But it happened. Call it a moment of weakness. Call it short-sighted-ness. I can't deny what I sometimes become, I can only hope to be better when confronted with temptation in the future. I realize now that letting you down in such a dis-respectful manner only hurts us both.

I hope we can move past this period in our lives. I realize you might feel like you'll never be whole again, but I am sorry. I will try harder. There won't be a next time.

While it's fun to drop weights and run away screaming into the, uh, morning, remember that every time you do so, you are shortening the life of the equipment you're using. Unless injury is apparent, or the weight is hyyyoooouuuuugggeee, the lift doesn't end 'till it's back on the ground. Say no to broken hearts (kettlebells/dumbells/barbells).

Have fun,

John here in NC... I will definitely be passing this on - it truly is awesome / sad to see what happens with the dropping weight over time.

All the best and my condolences to your kb! LOL

Spectacular bicep curls. I am guessing you did some cable curls and tricep extensions next? Maybe some calf raises, those were always my favorite.

It is still heavy isn't it? Have K-Star wrap it up in duct tape and gauze and he can roll around on it like the ultimate rubber band ball.
Just a thought from Upstate NY.
