...TOO much gym time....

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

How do you know if you spend too much time at the gym? I came up with a few, let me know if you have any-

1. If someone looks good, you KNOW they're doing it wrong.
2. You have three pair of training shoes, none of which have ever been outside.
3. Complete strangers know your BMI, heart rate, BP, etc.
4. All conversation contain3-5 people and revolve around some electronic training device.
PS- no one has the same unit.
5. You have mastered the art of using a water saver faucet.
6. You know where the best soap dispensers are located.
7. You're starting to wear flip flop in your bathroom at home.
8. Small crunchy towels are normal.
9. The shaving cream in you locker always runs out, but it never does at home.
10. You don't care how much water you use in the shower, (see #5)

And the bonus one-- Seeing an 83 year old man, sitting naked, reading the paper, while watching business week on TV. That doesn't even make you flinch.

    Love it - since I workout in the pool there are a few more that apply specifically there - like . . .

you smell like chlorine most of the time

you are so used to seeing nearly naked bodies of women bigger than YOU are

you have seen men and women in their 80s and 90s dressed in wrinkled skin and not much else

the words "thunder and lightening" strike fear into your heart since they might make you get out of the pool.

    LOL Fortunately for me (maybe unfortunately, as when the 73 year old do wander past in the nude I flinch), most of my workouts happen in less obvious places.

However, I regularly get to see good looking men pantsing themselves at my rock climbing gym: there are definite upsides to my hobby. Eye candy, especially in the summer, is one of them :P

Put it this way: at my gym, you never see anyone without a shirt who should have one on (including the ladies in their sports bras and tiny shorts). Partially because you burn SO many calories climbing, and partially because the concentration of muscle is like a LA beach :P
