First-world distractions at the gym...

These are some of the things that bug me at the gym. I'm not looking for advice, comfort, or solutions for them.

And I do realize that these are first-world problems. But they're my problems, and the fact that they're first-world doesn't dismiss them.

  1. I am suspicious of people who stretch parts of their upper body and then do a lower body workout. And vice-versa.

  2. I wonder what people who do some upper body machines and some lower body machines in the same workout are trying to accomplish. Or avoid.

  3. I get annoyed with people who spend more than ten minutes on one machine. Especially if a good percentage of the time they are playing with their gadgets. Or worse—for some odd reason—if they're just sitting there staring into space.

  4. It annoys me that my Planet Fitness has a "Cell Phones Prohibited" policy, but they don't enforce it. Even when the staff is giving a tour to prospective members, and they walk right by people who are screaming into their phones.

  5. Male-female couples who "PDA" (if that can be a verb) in the gym. Really??? Are you that in love?

  6. Too much mirror work. And I mean between reps and sets, not during them.

Oh yes! I should add that perfume one to my list, too! Ugh, indeed! Thanks for sharing.

Note: I'm guessing that this comment is from Jen. :-)

Yes, of course it's Jen!

And I forgot to tell you this yesterday, but hopefully it'll make you laugh from your sickbed...

I was at the gym Tuesday and I found a new pet peeve... people who EAT in the locker room! I came in to change and there was a woman sitting there eating a salad. Like, a real meal! I couldn't bring myself to undress in front of her. I mean, what if she choked? Or puked? It could be totally unrelated to me undressing and all about the salad but I would NEVER be able to undress in front of anyone ever again after that!

OMG. That's gross! As Pedro would say, "I never sausage a thing!" (And hope I don't!)

Thanks for the laugh!
