No mea culpa here nor with my trainer

After the experience with the ring card girls, I decided to have a chat with my trainer regarding MY results as opposed to those tarts wagging their assets in the boxing ring last Friday night. His answer, "Sean, genetics plays a big role in body shape."

I'm thinking so... "You want to play the Genetics card?" So this is my mother's fault? My poor mother. Well Thank God I have someone to blame, finally. Then it occurs to me - my mother is a size negative 8 and my father at 6'2" and 200 lbs. doesn't compute to my -- we'll just say Rubenesque physique.

So after deep thought, which really only took a couple of seconds because my brain truly isn't that big.

Anyway, I figured it out. That's it, OMG - I'm adopted. At 48-years of age my trainer in his beating-around-the- bush way has outed my parents. My real parents are actually fat, white Aborigines who sit out on the hunts for the Dingos and the search for fresh water in the lowlands of Australia. They just sit back and eat scrupa (made that word up - I'm so not doing research for this blog).

I'm just glad to have the mystery solved. And the best news is - my genetics take the blame, not me - nor my American parents, who by the way - have a remarkable resemblance to me.


  1. Yes, genetics, blah,blah,blah... But even I know what can be done to even out a physique with the right kind of nutrition and weight training. True, you really can't spot train one area, but you can enhance what you've got without surgery. I've seen it done before. Check out Stacey's blog She did it. I don't know if she has any "before" pics on her blog right now, but you might want to take a peek.

  2. Don't you just LOVE Irene? I do. Irene and I were blog-buddies before we met in person. Turns out that we were in the same track club. She's amazing. Got a stress fracture in her hip almost two years ago, a year later, ran a marathon.

    Anyway, if genetics were the answer, I'd be more like my sister, since we come from the same gene pool, and we KNOW that's not true.

    Whatev's. You keep going SuperHero Girl. You got it in you!
