Workout…

Standard

Yesterday after work I had some time of solidarity at my favorite place, the Chapel.  I got out of work late so I decided to spend sometime in quiet and I actually passed out for about a half of an hour.  It was a very nice power nap to get me thru the rest of my day.

Well upon leaving the Chapel I went home and got my workout gear on and ventured to the Y.  Let me tell you, I love people watching.  It also cracks me up that the people who are the socialites of the workout arena are skinny, tan, usually 18-35 years old or so, and they have a body that is not conducive to actually working out.

 

Yes...the skinny tramps look like this! Sigh and for the rest of us who have a curvy womanly body...

 

Now, this is merely an observation.  There are groups that congregate in the specific classes, around the machines, and at certain times of the day.  There are grunters, moaners and girls that have full-blown fake nails, make up, and hair all done up just to sweat a little.  It also makes me laugh at the little girls walking in wearing next to nothing but just a simply “cutsie” workout bra and spandex!  OK, I have a nice body but I am a curvy woman.  I could never wear that and feel comfortable at the gym.  First off, you would have to double those bras up so the “twins” aren’t banging me in the face (now I need no black eyes!) and second off it is a privilege…..PRIVILEGE PEOPLE….to wear spandex!  I am sorry ladies but full coverage granny panties that bunch when you run do NOT look so attractive in spandex and I totally respect that.  So no spandex for this girl!  Normally I am the kid wearing the big t-shirts and shorts that actually cover the bum up.  I don’t look like I am picking up on any of the gym rat boys who are trying to get swoll for Spring Break.

So everyone I am sure has heard of Jersey Shore, right?  I am totally not even kidding you these girls looked like Snookie!

Personally....I would take the pizza!

Truly.  Not joking.  She looked exactly like her but in workout gear.  Skinny yoga pants, a clueless gaze, and was working on who knows what?!  Why is it necessary to look like this when working out but, to draw the wrong kind of attention and lose your cookies!  Sorry…just kind of annoys me.

I made the mistake in college once wearing a shirt I bought to support my roommate whom played Rugby.  See I was the flying Cheerleader and she was the Rugby extraordinaire!  I loved wearing those shirts out of support but, not to the gym!  The one day I got hit on by a fellow female student (I was wearing my Rugby shirt) and I am pretty sure that there was a “minor” assumption made!  HA.  Flattering, but sorry I don’t swing that way!  Needless to say, I thought twice before grabbing a random t-shirt to workout in…sigh.

I kind of get weirded out when people not only bring attention to themselves via the outfit chosen to work out in, but also at grunting or making animatistic loud noises!!  Is that really necessary???   REAAHHH-OOHHH-AHHH!  CLINK-CLINK-CLINK. SIGH. MAN…

I hope this evening I can zone out, not get distracted by Snookie and her Jersey Shore crew and make some progress training for this Mini Marathon that I am running in May!  Here goes another training session for me…

I will say this about yesterday, I laughed so incredibly hard.  I loved like I had never loved before, and forgot about the “dead weight” in my life.  Yesterday I was in the best of moods.  No idea why but I will take what I can get!  Today was very good over all now, we will see what this evening has in store!  🙂

Happy trails,

Last night, she said….

Standard

Friday was a girls night. Fun and much needed.  We had a dance party in the bar…this celebration continued thru the weekend…etc.

Saturday’s a rugby day!  NOT.  I wish…that would have been cool…But, I had a delightful day of football instead.  🙂   I went to one of the biggest games from my Alma Mater, Indiana University, which is called The Old Oaken Bucket Game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Oaken_Bucket.  ACTUALLY, I cannot just simply say that I had a fantastic “-day” because literally since Thursday I have really been enjoying myself.  This weekend was full of mischief, old friends, and lots of laughter!

Well back to Saturday, the game was a good game…even better company!  We totally had a blast.  I got back around 7pm and then met a few other friends out and about.  This is where more humor happened to find me.  I was very early so I was the first of my friends to arrive at this dive bar across town.  I went in scoped out the table situation and realized there was not an open seat in the house.  Then, I made friends with a table of guys that were sitting at a booth where I was standing.  5 minutes later  Mr. T shows up so, I just said my good byes to the kind gentleman and went from there.  He then handed me a card for a “Chip ‘n Dales” event!  AHHH THIS MAN WAS A STRIPPER!  I took the cards and scurried back to my friends.  Then later into the night, a friend of a friend was introduced.  Guess what?  He was a stripper too!!?!??!  Two in one night!  How lucky could a girl be???  UH NOT!

Also some other funny things happened…I got thrown over a guy’s shoulder and spun around, I had to climb over a booth table and ended up being “eye” level with everyone…I also ended up meeting a guy that had EVERY single opposite team liking as I did.  THAT was interesting.  From rival high schools to NFL, MLB teams….etc.  It was crazy funny.  I must say we were pretty cordial.  I found a bunch of Sweet and Low and sugar packets in my purse, walked into the Men’s Restroom, and then almost got asked out by this huge black man.  Literally, this could ONLY happen to a CatMan.  No….for real though!  It was such a great random, fun night.

 

OPA! Just felt like saying that for some reason...

 

 

Sunday, went to church with the family then to breakfast.  We continued to laugh our way thru it.  My brother as cruel as this sounds announced at the table that he had gone hunting the day before and shot a duck in the wing.  Unfortunately, he had to wring the duck’s neck (that’s the cruel sad part) but that they had some delightful duck meat to share.  We are hunter’s and gatherer’s over here!  Either way, it was funny how he told us.  Then the Colt’s lost….that was an incredibly horrible game….sigh.

Monday is a Monday.  Today I am listening to “The Muse” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xsp3_a-PMTw and working on a bunch of hodge podge items.  I feel like I am being torn in several different directions…although I cannot say I am overwhelmed.  This is good.  My aunt is in from out of town so I think that we are going to go for lunch tomorrow.  What an excellent part of my week!

My last thought for you all today is this, if you appreciate your family and friends, please tell them often.  You never know what kind of day they are having or if they will be around to see tomorrow.  🙂

Keep smiling, keep loving and keep sharing ideas with the world my loves!
