I did a 45 minute INSANITY cardio class today at the gym, followed up an hour later by a 60 minute HIP/HOP BOOTY BALLET class! I am insane!
My "booty" is feeling the love tonight, believe me! LOL!
You know ... I go to the gym a minimum of 4 days per week (they are closed on Sunday) and take at least one class on each of the days I am there.
The answer is what's "messed up" ~
I do it because I don't want OTHER WOMEN commenting that "I'm fat" ~ heaven forbid,in a bikini!!!
At 5'6" ~ 121 lbs and < 20% body fat ... I AM NOT fat, by any calculation ~ except that of another woman and a mirror! LOL! Ladies, it's called "curves" and men like them! SHEEEE-EEEESH!!
Now, I've neverrrr had a man comment that I am fat ...
It's usually more along the lines of:"umm umm, hey baby, want some fries with that shake..." or some asinine remark such as that - totally a comment not generated in the brain ~ trust me!
BUT... other women ... totally different ballgame!!!!
I mean,one ounce of "jiggle" in the wrong place (booty and/or thighs) and that's a serious cause for the following to be said by "passer-by" females and whether or not they know you, is not important!
"OMG... can you BELIEVE she is wearing THAT? Did she not look in the mirror before she left the house??? Doesn't she have any "real" friends ~ obviously "NOT" or they would have told her "Girlfriend, you need to cover that up! or buy one size bigger ... HELLO!"
I work at the gym, like a crazy person, a minimum of 4 hours per week to avoid this ... It's a "girl" thing! LOL!
I'm 42 ~ my 14 year old deals with this ... I really should be past it, but it neverrrrr ends!! EVER!
When we, as women, are more like a man and happy at any age, weight, stage of life~ fat, bald, WHATEVER ~ then, and only then, can we appreciate the "joys" of being a man! LOL!
As long as they have functioning parts, they are happy and proud! It's amazing!
However, until the time of total acceptance and "whatever bliss" is common place among women, it appears that the fitness centers will keep racking in the big bucks -because as opinionated and judgemental (and jealous) women,we are going to pay the monthly dues, no matter what they cost!
Besides, who needs to spend money on food when you're trying to fit into a bikini, or a size 5?!?!
Food, at this point, is highly over-rated! LOL!!!! Spend it at the gym~on fees & protein bars!!!
I'm going to bed ... if I can get my sore booty up and walk in there!!!
I need to rest ... it's only 8 1/2 hours til 6:30 tomorrow night and I get to do it again!!!
I can't wait!! .... LMAO!!! (not really, I'm trying to "work" it off!!!)
