Dead Weight

Lift and flex.

Lift and flex.

One of my colleagues was talking about the need to cut the dead weight (read “people”) out of her life. I’ve had to walk through that too as I mention here, and especially if the relationship was long-standing, you may feel anger, regret and disappointment.

But here’s something about dead weight in particular. Dead weight is a civil engineering term. It’s a measurement used to quantify exactly how strong the structure is while not being used.

Trainers will make you do “dead lifts”, hoisting heavy, stationary weights, to build muscle quickly.
It’s tough, and makes you achy. But your strength is your reward.

If you’ve just cut some dead weight lose, obviously your training is done. Enjoy the freedom of traveling light! Flex those muscles by doing something powerful, and feel how strong you are.
