Over Heard At The Gym

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Sometimes I just can't get over the things you'll hear in the gym locker room. I was getting ready to hit the gym floor and was an unwitting party to a conversion that left we wondering. One woman (lets call her #1) was telling another woman (we'll call her #2 how she and her hubby had dinner with another couple that were their friends. She was saying how the other woman (and we'll call her #3) made a comment on how she lost 20 lbs. The woman #2 asked #1 if she was "heavy" before. #1 said she was overweight...maybe a size 10 or 12 ( emoticon really? THAT'S over weight?), #1 went on to say that #3 needed to "step" it up keeping her self looking good. The reason why? #1 told #2 that #3 had a "hot" hubby. And that if #3 wanted to KEEP said hot hubby, she needed to work on herself. So I'm not saying a word...it's not my conversion at that point. But I'm so thinking to my self that this attitude is SO wrong! A couple should love each other enough to love who each part of the couple are. My hubby loves just as I am! But really...how does #1 know what is going on in #3's relationship? I've had run ins with woman #1 before, but this floored me. Then #1 and #2 started talking in whispers...by that time I was changed and ready to go work out. I did feel sorry for #3, a friend shouldn't talk like about about you. emoticon

We're off to have our Fed taxes done tonight. We don't expect to get anything back this yr, but we also hope we don't have to PAY! Then we'll grab dinner at Panda Express and head home. Hubby has a Dr appt tomorrow plus the landscaping crew will be there tomorrow and Sat. We're hoping the sewer thing will be done by 9 AM Sat morning. Then we have a lot of type 2 rock coming in to fill the RV parking with. Lots of work! emoticon

Eating was great last night. I didn't go over my calories and the scale was down 3 lbs this morning, although before we all start jumping for joy...it's the SAME 3 lbs I've been losing for a few weeks now. I got 57 mins of workout in today, which was good. emoticon

So that's it for this Thursday....hope it was a good one for all of you!

    I REALLY think you need to go to WordPress and start a blog on Locker Room Revelations or something. You come back with some of the best stories. You could write a whole essay on what you heard in there yesterday. THINK about it! Hugs, Calen~ emoticon

    (PS. Judging from the numerous comments below, you must have hit an important nerve. SEE! Do a blog!)

    I agree with ROCKSTARLICIOUS-nobody gossips in the mens room. We just want to get in, get it done and get out before some old naked dude walks past our vision. Those girls are scandalous and KUDOS to you and your workout. Keep up the hard work!

    You are doing great with your calories and exercise. Keep Pushing Forward. Will agree with you on the couple with weight etc. There is so many divorces and unhappiness in the world today. Love each other for who you are. God Blessings to You and Everyone. Have a Super Nice Day. Take Care. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree with you, couples should love each other no matter their weight. Unfortunately alot of people marry cause they're "hot" for each other and it doesn't go much deeper.

    Sounds like you're doing well. Keep pushing that exercise.

    Funny, nobody talks in the men's locker room. At least not at my gym. But there is a point here somewhere. There are people out there willing to try to hone in your partner if they sense an uneven balance of hot vs not, and if that's even remotely possible, neither the friends nor the partner are worth your time.

    Another reason I work out in the park. No gym gossip to over hear.
