"Ugh, Ana, i'm not working out today..."
She sighed. "Lazy ass," she muttered just loud enough for me to hear.
"I'm tired and still sore from yesterday's workout," i said. "Besides, i finally stuck with ABC yesterday, and i'm going to stick with it today too. Don't you think that working out ever other day would be enough?"
She shrugged. "I guess so, for the start, but i expect you to do better in the future."
I nodded. "Of course. Just let me build up some strength."
It was such a relief that she was letting me rest for a day. Every muscle in my body ached and felt so tight from yesterday's intense sweat-session, a workout that i only made it through by some miracle of willpower combined with beat-y music.
Ana wrapped her arms around me. "I'm so glad you're finally TRYING again, sweetie. You really had me worried for a while, with all that binging and barely caring."
"I worried me too," i answered, returning her hug. "That's why i'm back to stay."
