So anyone who stops by this blog every now and again can appreciate the fact that I've been working harder when it comes to my fitness (singing a little Fergie "i'm up in the gym, just working on my fitness"). I have done pilates every Monday for the past 6 weeks (go me!). So, when two of the other women in my department start talking about pilates and how much they like it or want to try it (depending on which person was speaking), I felt like I had experienced enough to put in my two cents.
What usually happens is my comments politely get skipped over. Or get a general polite comment and then they move on. Some people might lie or exaggerate about working out, but dangit, I don't!!! I hear them talking sometimes about pilates or talk back and forth from their offices about working out, etc. Basically, I think they don't believe me.
Heck, I know I'm a good 261 pounds right now (ohhh yeah!), but that does not discount any activity or class that I do. It does not make me lesser in conversation about pilates or workouts or losing weight. It is quite frustrating. I am doing well at working out and am happy with my improved fitness and subsequent weight loss. But how do I fit in conversation about it?
"Hey, did you get that memo I sent you? Oh, by the way, I've lost 19 pounds."
"Geez, Killer Candice kicked my butt last night!...Can you help me decipher this legal briefing?"
"Can you approve this contract? I REALLY need it done so it stops distracting me from being aware of my core"
And these two ladies are quite small themselves. Definitely not overweight. And they're talking about losing 2 pounds a week, eating healthy (but REALLY hating it), and how much they work out. They're not the type to exaggerate either. And I kid you not, the one lady says "I figure if I can workout 70-80 minutes a day, 7 days a week, I can get to my goal weight in a couple of months". Pardon my French, but SAY WHAT, BITCH?
Workout that much and you might lose the weight, but you'll probably be as tired as ever!
Thoughts? Suggestions? Xanax?
In other news...
I have been loving Refrigerator Oatmeal now that I picked up some chia seeds. Some people don't like them, but I like the crunch as well as the way they taste when they have been in the oatmeal overnight or even over the weekend.
Got my nails did again:
|Dark Grey with a little sparkle.|
|Crockpot chicken, stir fry veggies + sweet peas|
|Someone got certified in something, let's have something yummy at the office. (Fruit Pizza)|
|Post Workout eggs, spinach and cheese, plus an expired granola thin|
|sweet potato, sweet peppers, oregano chicken. Not the best but when hungry, it was 5 star!|
Last, but not least, the world's most awkward picture of me. Trying to use the self-timer and back up to the wall, all while tripping over some shoes and trying to keep my balance.
Plus the flash bounced off the counter and made the pic a little blurry!
|Who wouldn't want to talk workouts with this chick?|
