Ok. Let's "chat" for a moment shall we?
I am absolutely irritated with this chick who is in the office next to me. She has been noticing my progress and weight loss and has decided to go do something herself....
I like this girl. She's really nice. She's always been a pretty good friend and I USED to enjoy seeing her pass through the office.. USED TO.
She's been taking Adipex for the last month. She doesn't eat healthy. She doesn't work out (because she says she's too lazy and she just doesn't have the time). I'll agree with the too lazy part... but DOESN'T HAVE THE TIME?! She gets off 2 hours before I do in the afternoon and she has no children to go home to in the evening. She can FIND more time than I can.
I guess my frustration boils down to this --> Today she comes traipsing into the office and says "Holly, I'm at 180!" Which means she has lost 26 lbs since she started taking that little pill. And like I'M supposed to be impressed or something. Now, don't get me wrong...I know I sound like a jealous wench, but I'm not particularly jealous. I really want to ask her... How FIT are you? How fast can you run a mile? How much can you lift? Do you squat? What are your fitness goals? Can you do a side plank? Can you do a regular plank? I'm irritated because it's like she's rubbing it in my face that she's losing all this weight from taking this magic little pill when I bust my ever loving rump daily in the gym and eat my 6 small meals a day and count every single calorie, gram of protein , fat, and carb I ingest.
I am happy with what I have done so far. I can tell that I am stronger. I can tell my resistance is better. I have gone up in weights the last few weeks. I can run faster and squat deeper. I feel tighter, sexier, and better. I feel that if I have one cheat meal every now and then I will not ruin the work I have done.
My main issue is NO I AM NOT IMPRESSED THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN THE LAZY WAY OUT WHEN IT COMES TO WEIGHT LOSS. NO I AM NOT IMPRESSED BECAUSE AS SOON AS SOMEONE DOES WAVE A CHEESEBURGER UNDER YOUR NOSE YOU'RE GONNA FAIL. I AM NOT IMPRESSED!!! as a matter of fact I AM ANGRY, because you make a farce out of what hard working gym rats accomplish by blood, sweat, blisters, and tears every single day. It ticks me off, because you THINK you're doing something... but you aren't. What you're doing is temporary. It isn't going to benefit you in the long run. When the holidays are over and that 26 lbs are back and your magic pills run out... what then?
Ok. that is all.
