We all have those little indicators… those wake up calls that cause us to really look in the mirror and come to terms with how far we’ve let our health slip. I had one of those moments recently myself. I tried putting on an old belt that used to fit me with an extra hole leftover! Reality check. Where’s my drill?
A lot has been going on in my life over the last several months and it’s taken its toll on my health. I’ve slipped. Now, I’ve got to get a hold of things and draw the line in the sand. I needed that reality check with the belt. Belts don’t lie like a pair of sweat pants.
Here’s a poll that I need some comments on. Which one of these “indicators” apply to you?
I know I’m getting out of shape when:
#1 I look down and can’t see the trolling motor pedal.
#2 My boat’s steering wheel traps me behind my console.
#3 I lose my breath by the time I make it from my driver’s seat to my front deck’s Bill Dance style fold down pedestal seat.
#4 The Mercury performance testing charts say my boat should get on plane in 5-seconds, but it takes me 23-seconds.
#5 The bass are referring to ME as “pig”, “slob”, and “hog”.
#6 Gay walleye fishermen with little pink jigheads no longer stare and flirt with me.
#7 My “tighty whitey” underwear easily doubles as an effective Lake Erie drift sock.
#8 My brand new double wide 95″ beam Ranger leans like a 1985 Bass Tracker Panfish model.
#9 My recessed trolling motor pedal wasn’t always recessed.
#10 My tournament jersey company will have to charge me interstate billboard rates for my next jersey.
