I’d like to share this moment with you so you all can feel better about yourselves today knowing that there is someone out there (me) that is dorkier (is that a word?) than you. You’re welcome America. This is even worse than last month when I was running and screaming up and down the beach for a good 10 minutes to get away from a horse fly, all the while Denis was laughing so hard he couldn’t get up.
I went to the gym this afternoon to lift weights because I do every Wednesday. Today, I thought I would run a quick mile after being inspired by the fatties (I say that with respect and love) last night on the Biggest Loser, who were running at speed 7 on the treadmill. If they can do 7 for a couple of minutes than I can run a mile at 8 no problem. So I did…I ran that mile and it felt great!
After that it was time to lift weights. I started lifting, but after a couple machines I started noticing people were giving me the double take look. Was I that smokin’ hott when I worked out? So feeling good, I kept going. But after another couple of weird looks I decide it probably wasn’t because I was smokin’ hott…maybe my headphones are too loud? So I turn down my music. Still getting the weird looks. It would be logical at this point for me to look at myself in the mirror to make sure everything is all good, but that doesn’t really cross my mind. I always try to avoid looking at my flab jiggling around when I’m at the gym. After I finish, I walk out to my car and I approach the door the same time as an older man, another weird look from him as he holds the door for me, but I’m too distracted to think anything about that because I have “All the Single Ladies” playing on my iPod.
I’m driving doing a little dance in my car to my music…when suddenly I look in the rear view mirror and this is what I see!
Except it was worse than that because I wiped some of it off. It was that Biggest Loser mile that did it before I started lifting, I was sweating more than I usually do. I laughed all the way home! No wonder people were looking at me weird, my face was melting. So the lesson I learned today is not to run a fast mile in the middle of the day when I have all my makeup on….mornings from now on.
In other news, I’ve started breaking up my cardio workouts. I use to just run and run and then run some more, but now I’m doing the Elliptical and bike too. And I feel like these are starting to look better because of it….
However, I’ve got a long ways to go on these….
Don’t feel bad if you can’t see the difference, because there is none! I’m working on it.
