Reasons, NOT Excuses...

top ten reasons (not excuses) that mouse cut her workout short today (please note I've been using a gym near my work which I am NOT used to yet): 10. Was being choked by the cologne of the guy running to her left. 9. Didn't think she needed to show up the five guys posing in the mirrors in front of the free weights (note: not even really working out) with her huge, rippling muscles 8. Walked in on a trainer stretching out a client in a way that felt as though she had interrupted something a little...er...intimate. 7. Running less than a foot away from a mirror is NOT encouraging. 6. The squash courts face the cardio theatre and she thought she was under attack (especially with those damn mirrors). 5. uh...American Galdiators is on tonight :/ 4. Was consumed with the thought of making Ooh-la-la lasagna the entire time she was there and wondered whether or not she had taken meat out to defrost that she had to go home and check. 3. The guy to her right cut one 15 mins into her run and acted like nothing happened. 2. She noticed the towel she got from the front desk had a slightly brown tinge to it and felt more than a little dirty... 1.Couldn't stop laughing when a guy across the room fell off the treadmill...the second time.

*laughs* I WAS going to blast you for these "reason non-excuses"...but then I just loved them so much, so yeah...I was behind a "cutter" today...literally every 5 minutes...it was brutal...I breathed loudly through my mouth (plus the cardio is right next to the tanning area, so mixed with the smell of cooking skin....not nice)

BWAHAHAHA

Not a single excuse in the bunch, and I mean it.

Who falls off the treadmill? And twice? That is funny, I would have laughed for sure.

It was a DRAMATIC, flourishing fall the first time. He attempted to do up his shoes to cover it up when he got back on.

The second time he gave up though and acted like he was done.

HILARIOUS. Obviously NOT a runner (especially since he was attempting to run in Air Force Ones).

#1, and #8
really did make me laugh out loud.

#2: Ew.

#5: that's some quality tv right there...

last, but not least. #3: the treadmill gas. When you do it (and don't tell me you don't!) do YOU act like something happened? ("Oh, hey sorry everyone! I just farted!)

Too funny. A guy actually slipped on the tm during my cardio last night. Now, I'm not an expert, but if you're gonna stop to grab a cloth for your sweat I'd think you'd want to make sure both feet on on the side rails or slow down the tm. As a gym-rookie myself I used a bike for the first time last night. Frustrated that I couldn't 'start' it I had to ask someone. "Just start peddling" he said. I felt rather silly, but hey, it'll only happen once.

After he fell the first time, I took off my long sleeve-shirt, one sleeve at a time and then popped it over my head while NEVER stoppping the treadmill, then took out my ponytail, redid it and put back on my headphones. I never fell or stumbled the entire time.

...and then he fell again.

Jennifer said...

LMFAO!!!!! That was hilarious! Oh Mouse I don't blame you for cutting your run short! :P

Trish said...

Gotta love the foot from the mirrors eh? From what I heard, my gym normally has TVs but it is under renos so they aren't back up yet.

Sarah said...

Falling off the treadmill!? Oh that's awesome. I've never actually seen that in real life.

Sara said...

Ooo I'm jealous I want to see someone fall off a treadmill - and I don't even need them to fall off twcie. Too Funny!!

Hey not really excuses b/c you did work out!!

Lucas said...

I love that you labeled this post 'asshat'. That term is not used often enough. I think I will make it a goal this week to work it into my conversation. Wish me luck.

Totally valid reasons, best top ten list I've read in a long time.
