I buff the bike seat with my bum
pedaling with intensity
the cycle moves me toward my goals
stationary though it be.


I buff the barbell with my hands
calloused palms on knurly steel
the heavier the load I lift
the less weighed down my spirits feel


I wash the floor with pools of sweat
through workouts challenging and tough
but in the end, it’s all worthwhile
my washboard abs are really buff

    I LOVE this, Maggie! Remember my fitness challenge? It was fun. I haven’t been in the gym for a month and it’s going to be painful. No washboard abs on my body. Ha!
    Thanks for stopping by the blog party!

    LOL! I’ll have to remember the line – the heavier the load I lift
    the less weighed down my spirits feel. It’s true! The joy grows in direct relationship to the effort given at the gym. Nice to stop by.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. Sometimes it’s so hard to motivate myself to get to the gym, but once I’m there, things always seem better. Thanks for stopping by.
