This is a really horrible pic of me..but funny!


Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I checked my local Crossfit gym website this morning to get the group workout schedule and wouldn't ya know it, Im in a pic on their site. This pic is totally unflattering but I got such a needed laugh out of it that I had to share it. No macho here... way funny.

Im on the far right in the black shirt. I am not sure how much you will be able to see but I was really giving it the snuff on the rowing machine and the photographer caught me in such a way that it looks like I was going to throw up, I look like im about to lose my cookies.

You cant really see me too good in this pic but the one on the website shows much more detail


The website where the pic is posted...you can see me much better and the look on my face.
crossfit906.com/

I was actually doing really good during the WOD but it looks like i am about to lose it.

Anyway, the mobile access issue has not been resolved as of yet but im not worried about it. however, I am worried about my little public temper tantrum about it and other things. I am never in a right frame of mind when I am coming off of a rough night shift and I knew better than to post something like that but I did it anyway.

Again Im terribly sorry, It bothered me enough to delete the blog, this is not the image I wish to present. We all come here for inspiration or a boost or whatever, not to listen to a crabby , overtired guy spouting off like a kid that didnt get his way.

    Great post Robert! I understand what you mean about the image you want to present. I often worry about that too, but it's about keeping it "real" and sometimes you just gotta' get it out there! But at least you got it out there first to help you feel better. Don't worry it didn't change MY opinion of you! I know you are a rockstar, and are HUMAN! Keep being you! THAT is what inspires others. emoticon

    Oh Robert...you made my day!! i'm still chuckling..you got the two on the far left laughing and flirting, then the man who is sayin.."i'm buff this is just for LOOKS, then the girl thinking...WTH this is HARD!!! Then the demo model in street clothes..LOOOK!! even an executive can do it!! And then theres YOU...looking at the digital board saying WHAT DO YOU MEAN I ONLY HAVE BEEN ON THIS 2 MINUTES!!!
I know thats not even close to what was really happening, but it is what i saw when i opened the pic..and it made me laugh!! YOU GO Robert..you look like you are the only one working..and i LOVE this picture and am going to save it..Thank you for sharing...you truly made my day!!
As for the other..fagetddaboudit!!! You really did NOT rant, you vented. and it wasnt negative it was frustrated. You are human and you werent mean or snipey or whiney!!

  You're pretty hard on yourself. I didn't think you sounded crabby.
I also think the blog is as much for you as for any reader.
It's a place to be real.

Oh, and I wouldn't worry about your blog....for real everyone has "a rough night shift and gets crabby" from time to time. You gotta remember - if it's always sunshine and rainbows, it doesn't seem real. NOBODY has sunshine and rainbows all the time. That's life! No worries!

    As I said in a comment to your status, don't you think we were all just as frustrated and fumed when spark was down? Your blog had no profanity and just seemed frustrated. We all just experienced spark being down for a good part of day, we know what it is like. I tried entering in calories a number of times that day and was quite frustrated. Reminds me how much I depend on this free website. At one time I tracked calories by hand and dag, I so don't want to do that again! Long live spark! And may they get their technical issues with your mobile device fixed. And again, all of us can understand your frustration when spark is inaccessible, as we all went through it a few days ago.

    First - love the pic! You look fabulous!! I'm a little jealous - I'd love to have such an awesome environment to work out in. We have one CrossFit gym here and I've tried going, but everyone was kinda snotty and all "Crossfit or nothing" mentality. It made me really sad! So instead, I'll live vicariously through you and your awesome CrossFit experiences!!!

Next - didn't see your rant and honestly, don't be upset. Life builds up sometimes and causes us to lose it over silly things. Everyone does it. Don't be upset about it. Acknowledge it, move on and keep smiling!

    Love the pic! It shows you are pushing as hard as you can. Someone once told me that Crossfit workouts makes them puke every time. LOL

Cut yourself some slack about the blog. Your blog is YOUR blog about YOUR feelings and what is going on with YOU. You aren't here to please people. You are here to get healthy and fit and blogging is part of it. We all have bad days. Let it go at that and move on. No one is judging you because you had a bad day.

    I love the look of "almost losing your cookies". The girl with the dark pink shirt is laughing..... she looks like she could be pushing harder. LOL....

And don't worry about it.... These blogs are meant for you and how you are feeling. We don't always have to be perfect and always shining bright. We all have our temper tantrum moments.
