    Awesome Ninja moves. Same reason I used to go to Disneyland on Superbowl Sunday!

    The game was pretty amazing. Poor Ducks. I really do love football. I was getting all crazy, and Chris was like “This isn’t even your team.” But my brother went there, and I knew he probably wasn’t even watching so someone had to represent.

    Go Seahawks!

      I loved the new Duck uniforms and helmets! They looked pretty cool.

      Oh and last night during the game would have been the perfect time to go to Costco. The parking lot was empty!

    I didn’t watch the game – I watched Facebook. Where almost all my friends were giving play by play commentary 😉

    We are snowed/iced in here in GA so if I COULD make it somewhere, it would be empty….if it was open, lol!

      My friends were surprisingly quiet on FB last night! I guess they were all busy watching the game. 🙂

    I am really not into the foosball either although I have watched Army/Navy games with my husband since he’s former military (Army). I’ve never been to a gym but knowing how I am, I would try and go when it’s less populated. I always do my running down at the trail by the river during the week. I avoid the weekends because there are sometimes people there. I like to embarrass myself privately with my running and panting and I like letting my dog off leash without having to worry about her bother anyone.

      That sounds like the perfect way to get workouts in. If I was a morning person I’d do the same… 🙂

    I did watch the game. Well, I fell asleep when Oregon tied it up at 19-19 and missed the infamous field goal. Oh well. I’m a big football lover, not a huge fan of either team so it didn’t matter so much.

    I love being the only one in the gym. Our small-town gym here is never really busy per se, but I prefer to go during the day when there’s very rarely another soul.

      It was pretty relaxing working out when it was empty!

  5. Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin

    That’s awesome that you got to take advantage of an empty gym!! The huge benefit for me to working out in the AM is that I never have a problem getting a machine. After work, there’s no way I can get one, but before work, I was the only person in there and I loved it!!

      I just wish I was a morning person!

    I’m with you, do not like football. Ehhhhh…Not for me!!
    I’m also ninja-ish for best times to go to the gym! I take Monday as a rest day. Monday is the “Gotta start my diet again” day. So I just skip it. Or if I need to workout, I have things at home I can do. But I avoid the gym on Mondays at all costs.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      You know you are right about Mondays! I keep thinking Mondays are a good workout day because people should be tired from a weekend and going back to work…but you are right. Everyone starts off with good intentions on Monday and gym attendance dwindles down as the days go by. Fridays are the best. 🙂
