Gym vent



Recommended Posts

I have to vent about the gym.

I can.not.stand the:

super tan 50 year old ladies (I am 47 by the way)

who park their convertible BMW

in the corner of the park lot so they don't get scratched

wearing full make up when they show up at the gym

with matching

headbands

sneakers

and outfits

who come into class and complain about the instructors

and the routines

and how the old instructor was so much better

UGGGGHHHHHH! We are here to stinkin' workout, get or maintain health and

get stronger. Please, I can't stand it.

Thank you, now back to your regularly scheduled programs.

And I hope I didn't offend anybody.

We get that in Yoga. 20 somethings who think they are more, IDK, something than people who don't fit into the cookie cutter image, basically:

-well-off or tryin got look like they are not trying to look like it, but are really, really trying

-less well off and tryin got look like they are better off not trying to look well off

-dressed in lulumon

- educated on current topics, which means whatever NBC, CNN, Bloomberg, or the next hippy to the left has told them is going on in the world.

- extremely into everyone doing their own thing, and being open to everyone making their own choices, but to be sure of it let's make it a law to do it this way, just in case...

On the other hand, there are amazing people who look just the same, and have alot to contribute, you just have to keep an open mind, open ear, and drink lots of Water (thought I'd throw that in since we were talking about exercise).

I totally agree...Yesterday I was doing Water aerobics and there were chicks who were all "dolled-up" and were looking for guys to meet...I'm like what happened to "happy hour" and why are spending some much money to be picked up...WEIRD!

Thanks SueJersey! Though I support their right to look artificial and stupid if they choose.......I have my own right to be grossed out by the excessive tanning and makeup. Natural looks better to me....but maybe that's just me. I get that people may want to get a "base tan" or whatever you call it. But I think that so many people don't understand the concept of moderation in regards to their looks....tan, makeup, hair color, etc. My personal preference is certainly NOT for the fake blonde, overly tanned female creatures that walk this earth with little dogs in their purse. :wacko: And why they show up at the gym that way...........I have no clue. Though I haven't actually seen one bring their dog to the gym............but I'm sure it's coming. :P

Ummm... I park my convertible Porsche at the far end of the parking lot as not to get scratched!

**** that thing cost a mint!

But I do not wear make up, ever..

Nor do I go matchy matchy!

So don't judge all far off car parkers the same.

Besides its exercise...

I can't stand the flipping perfume.

Who the hell does that? Or, just all of them wear the same stinky fragrance so they don't have a hundred different b.s. smells.

Laura......word on the street is that you show up to the gym in 80's style, color coordinated designer clothes with matching bling bling, makeup and hair spray. :)

This is why I had to leave my last gym. I was there to actually you know, work out. All the "social hour" types would talk so loud during the classes you couldn't hear the instructor. It drove me crazy.

Then, they would all stay for hours...not working out...SITTING on the equipment talking and sipping Water. I mean really?!?!

Oh the looks they'd give when you asked them to move; and they'd stand there watching you until you were done so they could sit back down. I still remember thinking, why hang out at the gym??? Oh and BTW, it was an all women's gym and these were the married ladies, so who the HECK were they trying to impress dressing alike and wearing full makeup?!?

I am glad I am not the only one! What drives me the most nuts though is the complaining about the instructors and putting them down. I had one woman walk out all in a huff in the middle of the class making it very clear that she was not impressed with the class. Give me a break, then YOU become the instructor if you are such an expert.

Laura - are you serious or joking? Good for you on the Porsche if you are serious. My mini-van is so beat up you won't even be able to tell someone scratched it if they did LOL! I was really just commenting on the "whole package" There are literally 3 different women that do all of the above and then so many others that are a bit of each.

I just go to the gym, sweat like a pig, work hard and get out.

Lol.. yes I'm serious about the Porsche! I'm 47 and just lost a bunch of weight! :P

Some get a boob job and a tummy tuck..

Some get a car!

But I'm not into make up Botox and gallons of perfume.. So I don't think I fit the bill of annoying gym person, I hope???

I do b***h but its because I'm lazy and just about die if I'm working out!

I liken myself to a fat calf getting ready for the slaughter to become veal (no muscle tone) :D

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
