Annoying Annie Says Sorry

I go to bootcamp last night hoping Olivia wouldn’t be there, surprise surprise she was. 😦

I’m on the olipitical working on my cardio and all of the sudden I see Olivia walking around the gym carrying a big plate of cookies.  Really??  Who brings cookies to the gym??  She brought Stacey I’m sorry for stealing your spin shoes cookies.  I’m pretty sure you don’t bring a fitness instructor cookies.  Get her a gift card or some protein powder.  Do you really think she will eat your cookies when she is so hardcore about her diet?  Use your brain.

I walk in to class and Olivia is chatting up a storm (with herself because no one is listening of course).  She is announcing to everyone that she had no idea spin shoes were so expensive…”$150.00 for spin shoes?  I thought they were $25.00″.  Olivia really needs to get into the gym world.

Class starts and Stacey makes us do some warm up cardio.  Running around the class is pretty challenging for some of us who are unfit (like Olivia).  She announces to the class that she needs to take a bathroom break.  10 minutes later she comes back and we are still running.  The second she walks in she says, “I guess I should have taken longer in the  bathroom.” WHY EVEN COME TO CLASS IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE LAZY!??  She is so annoying!

Throughout the whole class she just sat there complaining.  I almost want to get up an tell her to leave.  She is really affecting my workout.  If Stacey wasn’t such a good teacher I would have peaced out of that class a long time ago.

What’s a girl supposed to do when you cannot stand someone in your bootcamp class?


Gym Crush Workout

I don’t know about you, but I spend about 5 nights a week at the gym.  During my workouts I’ve noticed some really cute boys that could be  potential dates/hook-ups.  Now, when I’m having a hardcore workout day I really don’t want to talk to cute boys when I’m all sweaty and gross.  It is OK to give them an occasional wave or nod, but personally I don’t want to go up and give you a hug when I know I’m covered in sweat.  Not happening.  This is why I have dedicated one night a week to looking cute at the gym, also known as a “gym crush workout”.

On my gym crush workout days I’ll wear my hair in a cute pony and I will wear a “cute but I’m not trying to hard” outfit.  I’ll also try and show off my assets AKA I’m wearing my Lululemon short shorts. For my workout, I like to do some light cardio (normally elliptical for 15 minutes on level 5-7) then move on to weights.  I’ll do about 3 machines then I’ll move to the free weights and finish off.  Ovi, while I’m doing my weight sets, I’m scoping out the gym for sure cute boys.  Now I’m not talking about the juice heads that are checking out themselves, I’m talking about the boys that are seriously trying to improve their fitness.  Finally, I finish up my workout with another 15 minutes of light cardio (this time I’m walking uphill for 15 minutes on the treadmill)

Now the most important part of the gym crush workout is to scope out your selection. I mean, you don’t want to talk to just anyone.  Get a feel for the boys at your gym and see who is worth your time.  Make sure you are in their line of sight and make eye contact every so often. Maybe even them shoot a little side smile to let them know you are checking them out.   You don’t want to pick the wrong guy then have to deal with awkward gym encounters. :/
