To Bow Out of Working Out

Pronounced tuh-BAH-tuh, a Tabata workout is a high intensity exercise routine that … never mind the details; just don’t ask Dragon NaturallySpeaking to spell it right.  weightlifting

What I actually said to my computer: a Tabata workout  
How my voice software translated it: ate about a workout

You’ll never lose weight that way.  So I tried again, but Dragon wasn’t game for this workout, coming up with: to bow to work out

I’d give up and switch to a workout that voice recognition software could handle, like weight lifting … but it would probably call it wait lifting.
