I’m writing this as I sit on my spinning bike waiting for my instructor to get here and start this class for its scheduled time of 5:15 pm. I have somehow managed to get to the gym at 4:15 and do the stepper so that I was done before class. I started doing that for my “gluteus” hahaha aka my bum. Lord knows I need all the gym I can get because of how much I fluctuate in weight. As soon as I hit my goal or get close to it I find myself binge eating pasta like a slob. Anyway, as I was on the stepper trying to my mind my own business I thought about all the annoying things that come with going to the gym. Never mind the actual process of working out…let’s factor in that I see way too many people I’d rather not see when I look half dead with sweat dripping down me. I’m not one of those “cute girls” who come to the gym with matching head bands to their top and tights and runners with neon something on them. They always somehow never sweat… Do you notice that? I appreciate those people for having the energy and strength to care but I’ve just never been that person. I definitely fit the homeless description a little more. Anyway… I very much dislike the constant eye contact the guy next to me was making. Not because he was “creepy” or made me feel uncomfortable because he was by no means any of those things. It was especially annoying because I’m one of those people who literally doesn’t know how to not talk. Could you imagine how difficult it was for me to stay focused on my gluteus hahaha (can’t even say that with a serious tone) when there’s such a friendly faces around. Ugh. Also to add to that, the only class that I genuinely love and have seen such great results with so far has a new addition and it’s especially in this case not someone I want to see while i’m in this state.
What. A. Struggle.
Yes, this is what some of my friends call “Stella problems” because they’re really not problems at all hahaha okay class is starting and I can pretend to stop looking busy writing a “work email”
