It definitely was not easy
But I knew I had to do it
In spite of the chaotic pain
Burning me bit by it

I had signed up for this
I want to get till the end
I want my body to behave
To extremes I want it to bend

I stretched more than I ever had
Slowly I was able to move an extra inch
I hadn't taken care of my body well
Now's when I began to feel the pinch

Soon, the dumbell and I were one
I was able to smoothly glide up and down
There was a rising spirit in me
Even though my sores were black and brown

The toughest hour of my life
All about weights and me alone
I know this was the price I had to pay
To see my body shapely tone

I had to be strong in my mind
Wishful thinking sure did help
Even though at times I gave in
Let out a few tears and a yelp

Fitness is a top priority now
Enough of the ice creams I did lick
Sweets and fatty foods have bid goodbye
Now I'm happy being a workoutaholic

This post is written for the #BarAThon Day 6. Prompt: Wishful Thinking.


  1. A very 'energetic' take on the prompt :D

  2. I admire your determination. I need to go there!

  3. I love the sound of that - 'workoutaholic'. A great way to be though I'd still have that ice cream.

  4. Wow, this exactly how I feel right now. Used to be a workoutahloic and then stopped, now I am beginning to get my workoutaholic habits back and it feels so good.

    1. It feels so good na? Nothing tastes as good as fit they say.

  5. I am happy playing badminton, and keeping active even on weekends. Not ready to give up on my biryanis and sweets though. I have attained the balance to maintain myself, without sacrificing the simple joy of life which is great food.
    Good take on the prompt !

    1. That's nice! I eat healthy and indulge sometimes too. It is all about striking that balance.

  6. Hehehe I can imagine how sore you were... But that won't mattet once you start walking around with a toned and fit body :) keep going girl :)
