So true. And I can’t tell you how happy it makes me when that happens. I can’t be the only one, right? It’s really less about being lazy and not wanting to walk far and more about how I hate wasting time searching for a place to park.
And these big guys, you know the ones–jacked up muscles and big egos–seem to think that they have priority over the weight machines. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been doing my weights and some jacked up guy stands right next to my machine trying to pressure me to hurry up. Yet these types of guys will hog a machine for a good 20 minutes. It seems to me that because I’m a girl I shouldn’t be able to use a machine they want.
Tsk tsk tsk. What these guys don’t know is that I’m a raging feminist and when they try to pressure me that just motivates me to do a few more sets. 🙂 Just because I’m a girl doesn’t mean I can’t lift weights too!
Calories Burned: 653
I reheated some leftover acorn squash as my side because I was extra hungry. We settled in to watch Top Chef. I’m not happy with who went home. I think this season has been a weird season–people who don’t really deserve to be in the final group somehow made it and it’s baffling. Yet Fabio went home too early? Lame.
I have a quickie Giveaway! (Updated 3/11/11: CLOSED)
It’s a book I got when I joined Curves back in the day. It’s used and there are some notations in it but it’s not beat up and it’s a great resource. There’s information on how to meal plan, WHAT to eat at each meal, calorie information and recipes.
Since we’re talking about weight loss (and thank you for all the nice comments on yesterday’s post), Carbzilla said something really profound: “Food solves hunger and nothing else.” That’s an excellent mantra to have!
QUESTION: Are you ever treated differently at the gym because you’re a woman? How do you deal with it?
