FroYo Friend

Last weekend an old man and I had the same idea.froyo

Slow down there, buddy. Keep it G-rated.

I went to the gym and was lifting my tookus off. I have to go really hard on the days I do go because I’ve been so busy lately, I can only get there 3-4 days per week. So I have to make each workout count.

While I was there, a trainer with an older man came by and was looking for a weight. I knew the weight was hidden behind the rack because I saw it and I giggled about it earlier. I pretended the weight was scared of everyone and was playing an epic game of hide and seek.

DON’T YOU JUDGE ME. I LIFT WHILE HUNGRY AND MY MIND GOES A LITTLE WACKY.

Anyway, I ratted the weight out and told the trainer where it was. He said thank you. The guy he was training didn’t look happy with me. I guess he was enjoying his rest time.

I didn’t think more about it- except I did realize the trainer was exactly like a popular stand up showcase producer in town so then I giggled more to myself picturing this comedian in his suit at the weight room trying to get people to come to his shows while lifting weights. So I giggled some more and finished up my workout.

WHAT DID I TELL YOU ABOUT JUDGING ME!@?

…like I was saying, I finished my workout then worked for a while at home. Then I decided to treat myself to a relaxing walk and some delicious frozen yogurt (aka FroYo for the┬áSoCal doucheys).

I go to my usual joint, get my usual three sample cups (one more than customary because I’m a rebel), and start my usual sampling of all the flavors before I get the same flavor and put so many toppings on it, it doesn’t even matter.

And who do I see?! The old man who was working with the trainer earlier in the morning! He had the same idea I did for the day! Go to the gym then eat all (and more) of it back with froyo later in the day!

It’s a small, small world. Filled with fat, fat people.

Podcast Episode 54: Coincidence & Timing – Show Notes

photo1Today’s Femoir: The Podcast episode we talk all about the age-old debate- is it a random coincidence or does everything have meaning?

Here’s the quote I love:

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.

As always, I’d love to hear back from you about what you think of this particular topic or these podcasts in general or just how you’re doing (what you’re wearing/not wearing).

Also as always, thank you for listening, friend!

Serendipity!

I don’t know who Ryan Hall is, but he’s reading my mind (or my blog).

I wrote that post about “nailing the rest days” while feeling guilt for the fact that I’m so good at the rest days and maybe not always at the actual training days, when I get this quote in my mailbox:

I constantly remind myself that resting takes confidence. Anyone can train like a madman. But to embrace rest and let all the hard training come out takes mental strength. –Ryan Hall

How craycray is that? Kinda makes me want to take another rest day… except today I should actually do speed or incline intervals. Boooo.

I mean, yaaay!

Right?
