Tonight at the gym....


I cleared my throat and the lady on the treadmill next to me immediately shut off her treadmill, wiped it down, and left.

Should I be taking this personally??l

I didn't.... I was actually happy she left. She was a loud breather.

I took my shopping yesterday for new work pants and I bought myself some bona fide gym wear as a reward for my hard work the past month and a half at the gym.

Last week alone I spent 9.65 hours at the gym. I tracked 51,213 steps on my fitbit, equating to 17.69 miles, and I also managed to climb 46 floors on top of it all.

I deserve a moisture wicking athletic shirt and matching yoga pants!

My little old lady from last Sunday showed up at the gym again tonight. She had a ruffly grey shirt on, a grey ball cap, and black capri pants. I smiled when I saw her and she immediately began talking to me.

She said she left her husband at home tonight because she needed a break from him. She had apparently gotten her last 2 teeth pulled on the top of her mouth and she'd only been eating soup the last few days and she was getting sick of soup. She also said she couldn't wait to get her top denture because she planned on getting a job.

She is a woman with goals!

Makes me think of myself, in a way, as I've always got goals I'm working toward.

Right now my main goal is to become a better person.

    It's crazy how paranoid people have suddenly become. I understand the virus is a serious issue, but if people would stop and actually think about someone clearing their throat....it doesn't result in you spewing droplets into the air or leaving any more contamination than the normal act of breathing.
    Since fwblook4unow wants to see a pic of your new outfit, you should take one! Carefully arrange it on your bed or sofa or whatever surface will work best, and take a picture to post here! lol That will show the outfit without showing your face.
People are in panic mode right now.... There is a confirmed case in my town now and people are just freaking out. I have 3 coworkers now that are taking personal LOA's for the next couple of weeks.

As for the outfit, I might just do that! The gym is closed, it deserves some show time. LOL

    It's an admirable goal McLade......

    My goal for this week is to drink that lovely bottle of malt whisky that's been burning a hole in my mind for the last three years.......not sure I could tan it in a week mind.
We've all got our goals... LOL I've got a bottle of wine that I bought on my birthday a few years ago that I have yet to open. It's not burning a hole in my mind though...

    Hi secret_lade

    thanks for sharing

    keep it up

    hmm

    Whitney Houston - "Step By Step"

    Well there's a bridge and there's a river that I still must cross
    As I'm going on my journey
    Oh, I might be lost

    And there's a road I have to follow, a place I have to go
    Well no-one told me just how to get there
    But when I get there I'll know
    Cuz I'm taking it

    Step By Step, Bit by Bit,
    Stone By Stone (Yeah), Brick by Brick (Oh, yeah)
    Step By Step, Day By Day, Mile by mile (ooh, ooh, ooh)

    And this old road is rough and ruined
    So many dangers along the way
    So many burdens might fall upon me
    So many troubles that I have to face
I haven't heard a Whitney Houston song in forever... Thank you!

    Gyms here have been closing down due to COVID 19..Kudos to you for living an active lifestyle .It is hard work but well worth it..
So far they are still open in northern Michigan. They just increased the total of infected Michiganders by 28 people this morning so I'm wondering how long they will remain so, though.

    I tried (fake) coughing and hacking while in that huge lineup at the cash at the grocers... The f**kers hunkered up their scarves, masks and plastic body hazmat suits - and nobody budged. ๐Ÿ˜ถ
LOL That toilet paper isn't going to buy itself, you know. One of my coworkers who had throat cancer now has a rough sounding voice as a result. He was supposed to fly out to his nephews wedding on Saturday and they refused to let him fly because of the sound of his voice. Personally, I wouldn't want to fly anywhere considering what I saw on the news this morning with the long lines.... But apparently you no longer have to exhibit signs of illness to be refused. You just have to 'seem' like your ill.
