Donuts-Oops!

I scurried off to the gym

looking like a fitness diva

with all my fitness gear in tow

~~~~~~~~~~

I listened to my personal trainer

so I had all the right moves

ready to go I was,

Β I had no fear

~~~~~~~~~~

I lifted those weights,

worked

my quads, my back, my chest

~~~~~~~~~~

I wiped that grimy sweat

from my face

Β then worked

my biceps, my triceps, my shoulders & abs

~~~~~~~~~~

I pumped those legs-

lunges and squats

Β  until they yelled,

I can’t take it anymore!

then all of a sudden,

believe it or not,

my Fitbit

winked at me!

~~~~~~~~~~

I wore a smile

on face

425 calories have been burned,

good-bye, adios, au revoir

~~~~~~~~~~

I left that gym,

drove straight to the donut shop

I had no regrets, no regrets at all!

~~~~~~~~~~

I ordered that chocolate glazed donut,

and one more,

and one more!

~~~~~~~~~~

I gobbled them down

savored the moment

as my mouth said

heavenly,

my body said,

OOPS!

~~~~~~~~~~
