drama in the gym update!!

For those who read my post about drama in the gym on Sat nite, heres an update

Today went to the gym. At reception there was a thanku card from the muscle man who had received  the foot injury!!!

Basically it seems the gym was breaking rules by not having a fitness instructor on duty at all times on in the gym area, which means that although the gym is visible on cctv from reception no one had seen the muscle man being injured .It was fortunate that  the obese guy and my self hadnt been around, otherwise  god knows when muscle man would have got help.

But the good thing is that muscle man only  has two broken toes and  nothing too serious so he will be up and running in about six weeks!! Hopefully  in future he will be less keen to over exert him self and keep within his limits!!!. All is well that ends well I guess!!.

drama in the gym!!!

Having ingulged in some rather scrummy but rich desserts, I am trying my hardest to go to the gym regularly to shift the access calories I have consumed before they permanantly make home in the form of fat on my waistline!!!So today despite the fact its Sat nite I changed into my tracksuit and went to burn off these offending calories. Now if you are a regular gym attender you will know that Sat nights at the gym means that the gym is virtually empty .Only obese people in need to loose weight , loners or people with nothing better to do will be there or in my case guilt for eating so many desserts and secondly losing my partner to a game of football!!There were only three of us in the gym, the middle aged guy with a beer belly, which made him look almost 9 months pregnant, sweating profusely on the cross country walker and a real sight for sore eyes!!!My self on the thread mill, ipod voulme on full blast trying to run to the rhythm of boba bora from bluff master a nice fast number.Oposite me on the weights was the third person, a rather muscley young men dressed in designer sports gear from head to toe challenging the weights and I think to my mind seemed to be  rather showing off. As the tread mills are positioned opposite the weights it was hard not to view this creature exerting his muscles!!! I noticed that the weights that the young man was lifting seemed a rather heavy load and somehow I could sense some  catasrophe about to happen, but I carried on running. I diverted back  to the bora bora tune trying to keep up with the pace on the tread mill ,the middle aged guy too was pumping away on the cross country walker when suddenly the vision of the young man dissappeared from sight!!. I didnt think anything unsual for a moment until I saw him agonising on the floor, not really sure  what he was doing I chose to ignor him and mind my own business. A few mins later he was still on the floor looking alarmingly pale  and in pain. I paused the tread mill and walked over to him and asked if he  was ok,but he  was too busy clutching  his foot, I realised that he was hurt. I went to find the fitness trainer and a first aider.With help on hand, I returned to the gym to tell the guy help was on its way.The first aider came and soon an ambulance was on its way.It seems that the guy had dropped a weight on his toe and it was broken. Amazingly the obese guy was now on the cycle ,totally ignorant to all that had happened around him,not aware of all the drama had occured. My mood for the gym was spoilt so I decided to call it a day and return home, my dull Sat nite was certainly eventful, I just hope that  the guys  foot is not too serious……

haha……..very unlady like!!

A lady walks into a high-class jewellery shop. She browses around, spots a beautiful diamond bracelet and walks over to and inspects it. As she bends over to look more closely she inadvertently breaks wind. Very embarrassed, she looks around nervously to see if anyone has noticed her little accident and prays that a sales person doesn’t popup right now.As she turns around, her worst nightmare materialises in the form of a salesman standing right behind her. Cool as a cucumber and displaying complete professionalism, the salesman greets the lady with, “Good day, Madam. How may we help you today?”Very uncomfortably, but hoping that the salesman may just not have been there at the time of her little ‘accident’, she asks, “Sir, what is the price of this lovely bracelet?”He answers, “Madam, if you farted just looking at it, you’re going to shit yourself when I tell you the price”lolz ha ha 🙂

Liam..

Liam is a 5 year old kid, he  suffers from downs syndrome, he is almost blind in one eye and has partial vision in the other eye, He is constantly suffering from bronchitis, but all these disabilities does not stop him from being a normal 5 year old kid. I see Liam every month because the only way we can improve his vision is to fit him with an extended wear contact lens that needs to be changed monthly.He has been my patient since the age of 3, He is such a sweet and caring child, that I think sometimes we can learn a thing or two from him.  Despite the injustice that god has done to him he comes in always wearing a smile. Always in his hand he has a gift for me, a drawing, a cookie, a model he has made at school, a bunch of wild flowers picked from the garden, still with the soil, insects and morning dew on them, wrapped in note paper torn from his book. Such thoughtful and precious gifts that are so full of genuine love, they are more valuable then any shop bought gifts or cellophane wrapped bouquet of roses I have received.He tells me he loves me and I am his best friend but you know deep down I too love this kid and bravery that he shows. When ever I see him it makes me feel ashamed when I moan about my problems, in relation to his they are nothing ……….In this cruel world people like Liam are the real “true angels” that come to bring brightness into our lives, and teach us that quality of life is in our outlook……
