So standing in line at Weight Watchers yesterday a lady asked me how I was doing (refering to weight loss) and I replied not great. I told her I just stay the same I go up a pound down a pound, but I just stay basically the same. The next thing out of her mouth is, "Well, you can't work out". I quickly reply, "I work out three times a week". She was taken back, which is just weird and then we uncomfortably went our separate ways.
The meeting this week was about getting out and moving. Whatever you are doing physically do it ten minutes more. Basically step it up. Hubby and I glance at each other and giggle because we know what we are going to do 10 minutes more that gets our heart rate up. Hmmmmm.
At the end of the meeting this monster lady in this monster mobility scooter squeezes through the crowd and stops at me and says, "yeah like what are we supposed to do"? (Equating me to herself.) (eeew) Anyways, I once again quickly reply, "I work out three times a week." She says,"only your upper body though?" Me, "no my whole body". Squeezing her lips together in disbelief and not expecting to hear that, gets hearded out with the rest of the crowd.
Like I've said before I'm not a hard body, but I do keep my body moving. I ride the bicycle for about 8-10 minutes, I do every weight machine I can do. I lift 5-8 pound free weights. I do crunches (which is funny to see cause I have a rod in my back.)
A couple times a week I do excercise in bed (no not sex)........Ok that to. :)
I share this because it's frustrating to me and it is so typical of people saying shit before they think. Instead of assuming I don't excercise, ask me....."can you work out?"
