do you have any idea how hard it is some mornings to make a glass of water without vomiting?!?

my new gym nemesis

i prefer going to the gym in the mornings to the evenings. i have a better shot at getting on a machine i know how to function...AND it doesn't cut into my drinking time.

this also means that you start to see the same people over and over again.

there's the nice mom-like person who is always up for a chat.
the sweaty guy who runs the entire time i'm there.
the crazy shin girl who i only see on the stairmaster.
and now, my new nemesis: girl who wears all her makeup and works out for only 15 minutes.

i swear the first time i saw this girl, i had just finished showering after my workout and walked over to my locker to see her reapplying her mascara and checking out how she looks. now i'm all for not looking like i a washed up dishrag when i'm out in public, but after a workout, i'm completely red and sweaty. there's just no way around it. but there's something INSANE about women who feel they need to workout in complete warpaint. seriously?!?!? who are you hoping will be there to check you out?

but the worse is that she was "done" with her workout 15 minutes later and ready to go home.

i ran into her again this morning...again with full makeup (it's 7:30 am and there are 10 people in the gym). i saw her back in the locker room 20 minutes later. she was done.

this better not be a trend, because i'm so screwed...

    You get that all the time here in Orange County, CA. My favorite are the people who constantly check themselves out in the mirrors as they work out. That seems to be a popular habit for 85% of the women at my gym...hea, if they paid for that new chest, I guess they need to make sure it is appreciated as much as possible.

    But I don't understand one thing; if working out after work cuts into your drinking time, doesn't morning workouts cut into your "sleeping it off" time? What is your secret?

    haha! some nights after drinking i don't make it to the gym.

    i tried once and thought i was going to pass out on the treadmill (i may or may not have still been drunk).
