Can you stand another post about my adventures at the Y? It’s not that it’s such a huge part of my life that I feel the need to talk about it again and again, but I do have some more observances to share with you. Plus, I’m really grooving on the encouragement I’m getting from everyone!
Observations from the Y:
~It cracks me up that people circle the parking lot searching for a spot by the door. They are there to exercise and yet they won’t park a few extra steps away. I know it’s cold, but c’mon!
~I love that working hard makes your skin practically glow. I’m not talking about that red-in-the-face-and-neck thing that I get but rather that faintly pink tinge that your skin takes on when you’re exercising.
~I think food commercials should be blacked out on the televisions at the gym. I really don’t want to see the latest crunchy-cheesy-gooey-concoction from Taco Bell while I’m there. Ya know?
~I have to be careful about getting too “into” the music on my iPod. I’ve caught myself tapping my hands to the music and that’s okay. But I’ve been tempted to throw my hands up in the air on a few occasions. And sometimes the lyrics hit me just right and my emotions just well right up and my eyes fill with tears. It would be downright embarrassing to cry while working out, people. And it would be even more embarrassing if people knew that the song that most frequently causes this emotional reaction is the theme from “St. Elmo’s Fire.” Geez, I’m pathetic.
I know there were other things I wanted to tell you but I’ll save those for another post. Right now, I’m too tired to think about exercising. I think I’ll go snuggle with Mason instead.
