Well, I've been to the gym now 9 times according to my Burgers for Buns program and tonight I believe I proved that it's working! I went to play in a multi-ward game of dodgeball tonight and had a great time. I didn't get exhausted until we were nearly done, but that is not the reason I know my workouts are paying off.
In our version of dodgeball your team can score two points for getting every person out on the opposite side or one point for knocking over a little pin that is carefully guarded by the other team. About half way through a round I chucked a ball clear across the court in a line drive that OBLITERATED the pin! I smashed it into three pieces with the insides flying out all over the place. I had Emily take a picture of me with the remains to preserve for posterity.
