Reader: I’m ashamed to admit that my ex and his wife were on national television recently, and they both looked pretty bad, and the fact that they looked bad made me really, really happy.
They were on a national news human interest feature. I thought my ex’s wife (I call her my wife-in-law) looked awful. She looked chubby and tired and puffy and she didn’t smile once. My ex looked grubby and sloppy and not attractive at all.
I have been trying to cultivate a general attitude of acceptance and contentment. It bothers me a little bit that it made me really, really happy to see them both looking bad on national tv.
Athol: Nah just enjoy it. Everyone loves to discover they were the winning ticket. The best revenge is living well. If you run your MAP you’ll end up looking great over the long term and leave them behind in your dust. It’s perfectly fine to use a little “fuck you” as motivation once in a while too. It seems better at getting that one last rep done with the heavy weights compared to thoughts of butterlies and inner peace.
I remember having one of those friend of a friend suggestions on Facebook a while back. *Pop* and there’s a photo of ultra-crush-from-way-back staring at me on the computer. She hasn’t aged well. I’m not saying she needs a paper bag over her head or anything like that, I’m just saying @Jen_Kay uses the stair climber machines at the gym. That’s all I’m saying.
It’s a really good feeling. LMAO it’s sooooo good.
