Annoying people!!

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I did more this morning then most people do all day, so I'm proud of that. I got up a little bit before 5 this morning and dragged my tired butt to Zumba. Now I had over slept my alarm a bit, wasn't sure I'd make it on time, but I went. What's the worst that can happen? I get there to late for Zumba and have to try a different workout for this morning? But I did get there on time and I had a lot of fun doing it.
I have learned to not count on other people when it comes to my workouts. To often I'm left waiting for someone to show up and it never happens. So I drive myself, do my own thing and call it good. If people want to meet up with me great, I'll save you a spot. My mother, bless her heart, she yo yo diets on all the time, she ends up gaining more then she lost and it miserable. Her and I have been gym buddies for a while now, but she always drops off after about a month or so and then decides a few months later to try it again. Me I'm trying to be even about, to not burn out at the gym. For me this isn't a diet it's a life style change.
This morning, probably cause I'm not a morning person, I had enough. She begged and pleaded with me all weekend to let her come to the gym with me, that she would be up and going. she'd meet me there. Did she show up? Nope. Was it a good reason? Not even a little. Her reason, her grand reason for not coming was her hair just wasn't doing what she wanted to. Excuse me, no one at the gym cares. If you still look cute at the end of a workout you did it wrong get back in there and try again. I told her as much and she threw a fit about having to look nice at the gym. Whatever. Then I get there a there are two girls in class more concerned about their hair and outfits then working out. I was surrounded by annoying people today. If I go back tonight hopefully there will be less annoying people.

    I'm with you! Counting on others is what held me back in the past. This time around I told myself it was all about me. Yes, I have a friend I ask if she wants to come along, yes it makes the whole thing a little easier somehow, but in the end its me who steps on the scale or looks in the mirror, and I can't give myself excuses! You are 100% correct- its a lifestyle! And I intend to live it until I drop!! You go girl!

    Your Mom definitely is not ready to take care of herself. Sadly. But don't let that feel like it's YOU burden. It isn't . . . you're doing the right thing just counting on YOURSELF!

    HUGS and smiles. Hope tomorrow is better.

    Some days no matter what I do or where I go- every person out on the road is annoying and going the same place I am. And I learned long ago that its just myself responsible for myself. IF I want to be fit, I have to go work out, eat right and sleep enough. No one else does. Just me.

    It is annoying when people say they'll do something, and then they don't.

    Wow! I would love to find an early Zumba class that I could attend! I wouldn't be worried about my hair, for sure! Just keep doing what you are doing. Either they'll come around or they won't, but you'll be looking good and feeling great inside and out of the gym!

    I don't go to the gym or work out with other people I guess for that reason. I try and motivate people to work out but that's the best I can do; I can't work out for you. Although that hairy reason definitely is not a good reason to skip the gym; sounds to me like mama needs new motivation. Have you tried getting her involved in sparkpeople? Maybe she'll find someone in the same boat as her and get out of your hair. Don't let others get you down; emoticon and stay strong. My only workout partner is my son (16 months) he does squats with me and is sometimes my weight bar when it comes to strength training lol. This is just a small hurdle I'm sure soon your mom will be on the boat and look at this as a lifestyle change too. As for people in zumba, I think they joined the wrong class if they expect to get out looking cute; I've seen a class before that is not a calm class.

    I HEAR YOU! The point is to feel good and look good OUTSIDE the gym! I like it better when I go by myself anyway! I feel I work harder. I too go to a spin class and a Zumba class four mornings a week, at 5:15 and 6:05 respectively. MANY people come and go, but only the really determined drag their behinds out of the bed at 4:30! You go girl! NEVER give up, emoticon or let annoying people drag you down!
