Ow, Ow, Fuckity, Ow! - Juno

Months of inactivity. Countless.
Minutes on the cross trainer. 30
Number of old men with gas working out next to you. 1
Number of Calories burned. 450
Maintained heart rate. 144

Tripping over your shoe laces on the way back to the locker room and landing flat on your face? Priceless.

Ok, I take it from this absolutely hilarious post that you went to the gym?


I'm walking (and no, I'm not a Walk Nazi!) but I want to get back into the gym routine, which I haven’t done in over a year (my dues have paid for some gym employee’s vacation, I’m sure.) You inspire me.

But can I pass on being next to a guy with gas??

Bravo to you, Bea!

LMAO Ok that was funny. Not the falling flat on your face part of course lol.

Congrats on making it to the gym!

Have a SUPER day!

(seriously, though, pat yourself on the back. First step is the hardest.)

But at least you went -I have to be jealous and aspire to being as virtuous as thee!

So, margaritas tonight?
(What?? Its not Miller Time?)

good for you! I want the weather to clear up so I can start walking again. Instead of sitting and drinking beer and or wine and looking out at the snow...

I have bff that runs marathons and she banged the heck out of her leg, there was blood, staff was called, getting off of the tread mill. You are in good company and good for you. "You will bend like a reed in the wind."

"Yeah I came as soon as I got that ultrasound goo off my pelvis. It was crazy actually, my step-mom verbally abused the ultrasound tech and we got escorted off the premises."

welcome to my hell baby. That's a pratfall, flutter style.

Oh my goodness- at least your first day back was memorable! I laughed, except for the falling part - I fall all the time. Congrats on a great workout! Even in stinky company.

Ewwwww!! You lost me at "old man with gas." I would have been out of there so fast. *shudder*
