I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been working out – like a lot. And about 95% of the time it’s in the weight room which is a place I’m still getting more confident in. I thought it might be fun to talk about different thoughts I’ve had as woman, newbie-ish weightlifter who is also mega boy crazy at the gym in the morning. (This is pretty much what happened on Tuesday morning.) Don’t worry, though. Even though my mind is all over the place, I still kicked bootay on my workout. 🙂
— It’s busy for 6 a.m. today.
— Why is someone ALWAYS on the smith machine?
— Why hasn’t my pre-workout kicked in yet?
—*Looks in the mirror* Is that REALLY what I look like today?
— Okay … what the hell is a cable upright row *pulls up Google* I KNEW THAT
— Why is this gym so freezing?
… Then, after one set of cable upright rows
— WHY am I wearing this sweat shirt? It’s so hot! Get it offffffff.
— THERE’S THE PRE-WORKOUT – I CAN HEAR COLORS
— Why do my ears itch?
— Ooooh, I like this song! *dances* Shit, did anyone see me dancing?
— I forgot to check-in here … have to do that otherwise it doesn’t count. And who doesn’t want to be Mayor of the gym on Swarm? Not that anyone even uses Swarm …
— Oh, hey … the cute personal trainer guy is here. Let’s just not look at him. Ever. Wouldn’t want him to know you’re interested.
— How about you stop daydreaming about personal trainer guy and actually do your damn tricep pressdowns, Jessie?
— Why is that guy looking at me? I don’t want you to look at me. Stop looking at me.
— Jokes, he’s looking at himself in the mirror.
— Nopppppe, 20# weights aren’t going to happen anymore.
— I hate tricep extensions …
— OH WAIT. Is that a VISIBLE tricep muscle?? I LOVE TRICEP EXTENSIONS.
— Is that girl ever going to get off the smith machine or is she just going to use it to take selfies all morning?
— Fine, I’ll do regular shoulder presses since she won’t get off the damn machine.
— WHOA, I need to do shoulder presses more often! Look at my muscles! What are those??
— Annnnnnd, now she’s done with the smith machine. Well, I don’t want it anymore! She better not take the cable machine thingy.
— Oh hey, who is THAT guy? Is he a Packer player? He looks like he works out a lot. And he’s new, I’ve never seen him here. He can look at me, he’s cute.
— I THINK HE JUST LOOKED AT ME!
— OMG JESSIE WORK OUT.
— Where the hell can I find a “band”. I need to do 100 reps of something with a band and I can’t find the band … guess I can’t do that anymore … shit, never mind. Found the band.
— I have time – let’s do 12-minutes of HIIT on the treadmill. UGH.
— Whyyyyy are my pants falling off? I wore the wrong pants to do treadmill work. Gotta go on the stair master.
— Nope, New Cute Guy is doing lunges in front of the treadmills – home girl is going to have to run while holding up her pants.
— *Sees myself in the mirror again* HAS MY HAIR LOOKED LIKE THAT THE WHOLE TIME?
— My arms feel like they’re going to fall off.
— Time to go stretch … everything hurts …
— Why does “Pony” always come on when I’m stretching?
— STOP LOOKING AT ME UNLESS YOU’RE PERSONAL TRAINER GUY OR CUTE GUY.
— Oh, he’s looking at me because he knows me because I work the front desk. Shit. Smile. Stop being a bitch, he’s nice.
— Is this pre-workout ever going to wear off or am I going to be buzzing around like a hummingbird at work?
— Shower. Get dressed. Yep, pre-workout is gone. Time for some Starbucks.
Do you have anything to add in to my list? 🙂
