Turning 30.

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Tomorrow I turn 30. Whooooooa. It's hard to believe it. I don't feel 30. I don't look 30. But... I am! Lol. I'm not going to be one of those "waaaaah!!" type of girls and whine about getting older. After all, turning 30 is a gift denied to so many that went before their time. I think of my friend Mike that passed away two years ago and would be having his 30th in two months, my cousin Mandy that passed at the age of 16 from cancer, and my childhood friend Angel that died from a drunk driver at 17. I know I am blessed.

Anyways.... gear change...

Vent time! emoticon

So last night I was at the gym and a girl came up and got onto the treadmill next to mine even though there were a lot of other ones open. Okay, whatever. I know some people just like to be around others so I gave her a brief smile and refocused on my workout. But the majority of the time I noticed she was looking over at my machine and checking out my speed, mileage, etc. Like worry about your own info and stop staring at mine! And each time I would start to run she would cut me a look and then start to run as well. Uh, girlie - it's not a competition. It was just annoying. Finally she left and I was able to finish the rest of my treadmill time in peace. I hope I don't get stuck next to her again tonight when I go. lol

I really like the gym but sometimes it feels like a chore going. I don't feel like it tonight but I will make myself anyway, esp since tomorrow I am not going and plan to feast upon cake and a steakhouse dinner. Mwahahaha.

Hope you all have been well. =)

    Everyday is a gift. You seem to have learned that lesson early in life. I hope you enjoyed your celebration this evening! Blessings, June emoticon

    emoticon emoticon I hope you have a wonderful day of celebrating you!

    If you see that woman at the gym again, politely ask her what was happening. Just say it made you feel uncomfortable because you're working with a specific workout program (whether you are or not doesn't matter, this will just make her realize you are challenging YOU not HER) and felt like she was trying to make it a contest. Maybe she needs the challenge from someone else to push her and didn't realize she was being kinda creepy. She could have done the same thing from a distance so as to not bother you. If it happens again, you might want to mention it to staff, because if she's doing that to others who are also uncomfortable then it's their job to step in and talk to her about proper gym etiquette.

    You are thrty.
    I am sixty.
    I only in the last few years started paying attention to my health and fitness. I look around myself at my peers and I realize how lucky I am to be able to do what I do.

    Please. It may feel like a chore to go to the gym, but make it a habit because you will reap dividends later that you just don't realize now. I sometime wish I had done what I am doing now, earlier. I wonder why I never ran before ... it is so much fun. I look back at my dad who died when he was only about heighten months older than I am now and he was an old man.

    So celebrate 30. And do good things for yourself.

    Happy 30th Birthday - have a great one. Don't worry about people looking over your shoulder - just keep doing what you are doing.

    What a compliment to you that a stranger would want to do what you're doing to look as good as you!! LOL...just a viewpoint! Happy 30th. I love every birthday...every morning...every time available. Keep sparkin'!!

    Great attitude about your 30th and hope it is a WONDERFUL day for you. :) I have one more year until my 30th and am honestly looking forward to it. We get older...that's what we do. I don't really understand the embarassment about age for women.

    As for your workout, that girl sounds obnoxious. :-( Some people just don't understand personal bubbles. If she IS there again, you could try putting a magazine over your screen or challenge her to a danceoff, I suppose. :)

    Have a happy birthday! 30 isn't as bad as some say it is. emoticon and I agree with Wishicouldfly. Maybe that chick was clueless as to what to do and saw you gettin it good and decided to look to you as an example. emoticon
    2089 days ago
    Maybe she is looking up to you as an example. This woman sure looks like KNOWS what she is doing. Maybe I'll follow what she does. Just a thought. I think you should take it as a compliment! emoticon

    I hope you have an awesome birthday! emoticon -Connie
