SO I’ll have you know that I’ve been to the gym twice since I posted yesterday. That’s right. Hold your applause. I only did so my Man and I can go see LIMITLESS tonight!!!!
I only do things for rewards. This morning I did a random assortment of weights for my shoulders, biceps, triceps, deltoids (not sure EXACTLY what those are but that’s what the machine said and it felt like it was the back on my arms), abs and some squats for good measure.
Then LAST night I headed straight to ride class from work and got my spin on. There was a slight problem with last night's class though. As per usual I chose the bike at the very back and closest to the door. If that's not a testament to how I feel about ride class, I don't know what is - two steps in, two steps out. On average i'd say that as far as pushing yourself i'd be in the upper percentile of hard working participants. However, last night I had three people sit on the bikes directly infront of me, and not just any three people. Three lazy enablers.
That's right E-N-A-B-L-E-R-S
All three of them rode slowly and under pace. On top of this, they blocked my view of the instructor. Now I know you're wondering how this makes them enablers, so i'll tell you. I AM inherently lazy. The little voice inside my head tells me to "just pretend to turn the tension up". It also says things like, "Whoaw, that's way too fast, you can't breath. Slow down. Relax. Have a drink. Check out the people beside you. Sh*@ you've stopped pedaling all together." The LAST thing I need is three people infront of me practically encouraging me to ride at comfortable speed. The three of them barely keeping pace was like saying, "let's ALL go slow. You need an excuse to be lazy? We're excuse. Follow us. Besides you can't see the instructor."
Like I said... LAZY ENABLERS.
The point of this story is that I didn't work that hard in ride last night. But it wasn't my fault (never take blame). And I should sit in the front. Annnd at the end of class I wanted to stand infront of the enablers bikes and say, "Screw you guys."
I'd show you some of things I ate yesterday, but really all you have to do is scroll down. Veggies, Socca, Hummus, Green Sludge, Black Bean Brownies. Speaking of Black Bean Brownies, I offered my Dad one yesterday and promised him it was good. His response was, "Well that's not saying much, i've seen what you eat on your blog."
I love him.
My Man and I spent the rest of the night watching Dancing with the Stars. I've never been an avid DWTS watcher, BUT it's a fun show. My Man will watch because of the football players and boxers, and i'll watch for my fav supermodel...
How about when Wendy Williams said, "I'm fine," and sounded like Sean Connery took over her body.
I bet she's a lazy enabler.
