Wednesday Confessions!

I swear, every Wednesday I sit down to type this post, (at least I'm not doing it at work today) I say, HOLY CRAP, it's Wednesday! Annnnnd today is no different. Monday was kind of a free day for me. I thought I had a training class but it was last Wednesday. Some how I put it on my calendar on the wrong day. Ooops. It's OK, I still have a crap-ton of compliance classes to take and yea, free day. but you know what, I still didn't take them.

So I decided to change up my confessions today and instead of confessions I'm going to write some open letters to a few people I encountered this weekend. Here goes,

Dear Lady behind me in the checkout line, please don't crawl up my ass. I'm still paying for my groceries, the closer you get, the slower I move. If time is of the essence, and you need to get out of the store in a certain number of minutes, don't go to Super Target on Sunday afternoon. Now I give you stank eye.



Dear family with the five year old at Costco, those carts are really big, even I have a hard time pushing it. Your child is too small to manage pushing that big of a cart, he's running into the displays, he's run into me twice and you're in EVERY aisle I'm in. I understand that he probably really wants to do it, but when it affects the other store patrons, tell him no. Now I give your child stank eye.



Dear ladies in line at Starbucks talking about getting a coffee. Your venti, double mocha crunch with extra whip isn't a coffee. Let's be real, it's a milkshake. 2 ounces of coffee in 800 calories of milk and sugar isn't coffee. I'm not hating on your drink choice but that's not coffee. Side rant, why are people so much more willing to consume 1200 calories of coffee beverage but not a milkshake? It's ice, milk and sugar, same thing... BTW, I didn't give stank eye here.



Dear people waiting for Body Pump Class, class starts at 2pm, you arrived at 1:30 and are waiting at the door, looking at your phone for 20 minutes. We are surrounded by a sea of cardio machines and weights. 20 minutes is a lot of time to get your additional sweat on. Hop on the elliptical, do a plank, pick up a weight, you're already at the gym! You can watch the door and jump off when the other class ends. I didn't give stank eye here because I was too busy sweating out an extra 150 calories on the ARC Trainer.


Dear lady next to me in spin class, why don't you sweat? The class is full, it's hot and I've already sweated through my headband, like seriously, my headband reached maximum sweat capacity and couldn't hold anymore. And you, you lady aren't even glistening, I don't understand it I look like I was on a slip and slide. I'm fearful that your body isn't regulating heat properly and you're going to pass out from heat exhaustion. Or perhaps you turn up the resistance on the bike. I didn't give her stank eye, but I did give it to the lady behind me who kept screaming randomly during class.

 
That's all for me folks! Don't forget to head on over and check out these awesome ladies!
 
Confess! What's on your mind today??

  1. I didn't used to sweat.. Then one summer I stayed in Raleigh instead of going home and it's like something in me broke and started sweating. I remember walking across campus wondering what was wrong with me.. and now I can't stop sweating. It's the worrrrrsssttttt.

    I'm a frou frou coffee drinker. I only order peppermint mochas or pumpkin spice lattes, I don't care if it's fall or winter. I'm lucky that most places keep peppermint flavoring throughout the year.

    1. When I was heavier I never used to sweat at they gym, then something broke loose and I can't stop. Thankfully it's only while I'm actually working out and I;m not like my aunts who used to constantly mop the backs of their necks.

    1. Sometimes I'll push their cart out of my ass and say "excuse me". Really, I'm not moving any faster.

    1. I do too! I try to get there with 20-25 minutes to spare so I can get some cardio time before. I'm already there, why not burn some additional calories??

    1. Sad confession, I don't like Starbucks coffee either. It always tastes burnt to me and I only drink almond milk so no coffee beverage for me. I always get their iced passion tea which is delicious. :)

  6. Haha I love these & the ecards are perfect. I sweat...but it takes a lot...especially to get me really sweaty so I feel like sometimes when I leave the gym I get judged cause I'm not drenched ha.

    1. A little sweat is good but the lady in the back row was putting on her make-up. Really????

      Delete
  7. Ugh I just had someone come up behind me in line and stand WAY too close. It was seriously creepy.

  8. This is great!
    I HATE when little kids are pushing those huge carts. Its the equivalent of an old lady not looking over a steering wheel.
    Ever since they put the calories up on Starbucks drinks, I don't even think twice of those fufu drinks anymore. Not worth it!!!

    1. I'm old enought that I remember when they didn't put nutritional info on packages. I haven't had a Pop Tart since then. :)

  9. It drives me nuts when people behind you in line get as close as they can and practically push you along. I had an older gentleman actually run into me with his cart then proceed to push on it. I don't think he realized, but I was five seconds away from laying into him. Ugh. I let my son push the cart, but I also "help" him and make sure he doesn't run into people or displays.

    1. I don't know why it's always the older people who crawl up on you in line. And I wish the mom would have helped the kid and the cart. :)

  10. Ommgggg to the tweens who buy frapps at Starbucks who think they're all adult-like and trendy drinking coffee beverages...UGH your mocha chip frapp whatever is NOT coffee!! And I seriously give the stink eye to anyone bumping me in line.

  12. LOL this post was pretty amazing. But seriously... how do you not sweat in a spin class?! I'm usually wiping my face like every two minutes haha. So gross, but so great!
