Junior High Antics, Grapefruit, and Song of The Day...

15 days until Show!!

My day started at 5am - I worked on my grocery list, my to-do list, drank coffee, then hit the gym for cardio. I'm on the stairmaster, I'm puffin away to LL Cool J, I'm in my zone - eyes are closed, climbing-climbing (and yes, I am without shirt), when.... THWAK! The woman next to me has hit me with her sweat towel as she put it back over the arm of her stairmaster. Hmmmm. I look at her, but she won't look at me, she continues chatting with her friend next to her. Innocent mistake, I'm sure.

Climb, climb, climb - puff, puff, puff.... THWAK!!!  Really? This time I look harder at her... she won't look at me. I simply don't exist to this woman. Whatever. Back to my zone. I've got 10 minutes left, just push through and get done.

Climb, climb, climb - puff, puff, puff....

Oh yeah, you saw it comin' right? THWAK!!!  This time I made a grab for the towel as it hit me, but missed... still she won't look at me. Are we in junior high?? WTH! Seriously??

I finished my 40 minutes, wiped down my machine, put on my shirt and stretched then smiled REAL BIG at her and her friend as I passed by. Too early in the morning to deal with passive-aggressive grumps.

Back home, I had breakfast... my 3 egg muffins with half a grapefruit. So, when the diet specifies half a grapefruit for breakfast, but doesn't specify SIZE of the grapefruit... this is what happens...
Hehehehe. 

Song for today.... 
Queen Latifah, "Champion"

Lyrics:
I don't even care
No more
That's my word
That's for sure
I don't even cry
No more
That's absurd
I'm so cured

I'm so secure
With who I is,
Oops, who I am
And I'm a champion
For sure boy
I'm a champ
Oh, yes I am

But what
I thought about
When those people
Put me down
They can laugh
For now
But watch it
When I turn
This thing around
I know, I believe
Ain't nobody gonna do
It but me
I'm fly, no lie
I'm the truth
Baby ask me why

I'm a champion
I'm a champion

What you say
Don't stick
I'm the best
And I know it
I know you tried
To bring me down
Look at me now
Watch my smile

I'm so secure
With who I am
And I'm a champion
For sure
I'm a champ
Oh, yes I am

But what
I thought about
When those people
Put me down
They can laugh for now
But watch it
When I turn
This thing around
I know, I believe
Ain't nobody gonna do
It but me
I'm fly, no lie
I'm the truth
Baby ask me why

I'm a champion
I'm a champion

Keep your head up
They hatin'
Cause you
Majored in minor
Gonna celebrate
Like you won
The finals
Hold your trophy up
In your parade
In your honor
And pour some champagne
And put your glass
To the sky
'Cause you a champion
You're a champion

I'm a champion
I'm a champion

  3. They need a sign at your gym that says, "Children not allowed without parental supervision.". Then, next time, you can go tell on the B----! After all, you wouldn't want the little darling to get hurt, would you??? ;) THE NERVE!!!!!

  5. REALLY???? We have spray bottles with disinfectant in them to wipe down our machines. I would have "disinfected" her!!! You are a much bigger woman than I am! If she was paying that much attention to HER workout as she was YOURS, she'd probably be in better shape and not so jealous of you! Keep rockin' woman!!
