I'm participating in Susanna Hill's First Annual Holiday Contest. I have my students write parodies of Twas the Nigh Before Christmas every year, but this year I didn't write one with them, so this is the perfect chance.
Small temptations were bugging wherever I roam.
The diet was suffering, it didn't really have a chance
Rather than fall victim, I took a firm stance.
My ability to resist just didn't work out
The thought of the scale made me want to pout
But who can say no to a great homemade treat
And those Mint M&M's - they just can't be beat.
There was a necessity of calories to burn
The plan was to give the muscles a turn.
A class a day, on a bike, was the plan
Better than delicious sweets on a ban.
Spinning class, each day of the week
Making sure the pounds, on me, don't sneak.
That was the plan of action, the way to success
Ensuring the scale number won't reach excess.
It was easier to write this in past tense, but this is my plan for this week. Trying not to kill my legs too soon so we (my legs and I) can make it through the week :)
