Days 38-43: The Sound of Silence

Sorry for the lack of posting the rest of last week.  I was in a bad hormonal headspace!!  I was cranky, fought with Giggleman too often over dumb things like "OMG, how did you lose my peanut butter!" or "It is so your fault I can't find my keys!", and he quickly learned to avoid me for a few days.

But, I did get chosen as Employee of the Month!  At least Aunt Flo did not effect my work performance :)  I didn't expect it at all since I only became an "official" employee in mid-April.  So what do I get?  I pretty much get a "good job" from my boss and a special parking space in the front row on the other side of the building.  I think my normal place I park is a bit closer to my preferred door than this one. 

I know what you're waiting to hear now...did you get your gym workouts in?  NO!  I know, I know...I had that wonderful post full of motivation.  But, I also didn't mention the horrible experience I had last time.  When I was in the changing room, this girl and her mom come in to change.  The girl would not stop staring at me!  I felt like I was in 5th grade again trying to avoid letting the other girls see all of me in the locker room again.  I then head off to the gym and all was ok in the world again.  After my workout, I changed into my swimsuit to meet Giggleman in the pool.  I noticed he was looking pretty grumpy.  He proceeded to tell me about his experience in the pool.  "There was this mother and daughter...the girl pointed and laughed when she got near me...the mother pulls her aside and tell her not to laugh in front of a fat person, make sure that you just laugh on the inside!"  WTF!!  I was not shocked out to find out that it was the same people I encountered in the locker room. 

With the way I was feeling last week, I wanted to smack them silly...but I didn't and did my usual thing of avoiding the situations that piss me off.  My shy, try to hide away side won out yet again...and of course, that side of me doesn't help me much in life.  My gym avoidance ends today!  I'm not on the rag, I'm not in pain, and I'm not about to let some idiots ruin my plans.  I'm up a pound from last week, but I'm not going to give up!!  You will see a workout report tomorrow!

OMG!! I can't believe that! What a brat, and that mother! One guess where the kid gets it from. I am so sorry you had to endure that. I think I would be a bit gym-shy too, after that experience.

But you can't let them get to you. You have the right attitide now. Get your bootie to the gym and be proud of yourself.

And BTW- I get the same way with my hubby... why do we get in such stupid arguments some times? Aunt Flo can really make us evil ;) Oh well, we deal with the pain, cramping, and bloating, They have to deal with the moods!! I think they are getting the better bargain... don't you??

Wow, sounds like the mom could use some etiquette training, too! That's just horrendous. Hang in there and enjoy your gym!

OMG! What idiots!! There are some people in the world that deserve all the karma they get.

Don't let 2 dimwits like that make you avoid the gym. You're doing something GOOD for YOU, not for them and they're just two idiots.

I would have been on slapping patrol if I'd seen them. How rude!
