Sometimes you write a post about your sappy feelings, and then you get emails from fellow concerned bloggers about your state of mind.

For the record it is a beautiful short wearing day in Toronto. And anyone who has ever visited Toronto knows our mood depends heavily on the weather.

You could be going through the crappiest time in your life, and still feel like a million bucks, because it’s a balmy 25 degrees in September. Thus I feel fantabulous…and xxxtra happy that I shaved my legs.

I have a gym at my new place. It’s pretty basic and always deserted…yuppies only like to work out in the expensive hot yoga studios….which works out well for me.

Last night, I got all dressed up, because really no one works out in spandex and loose t-shirts anymore…. (I really hope you guys knew that) and spent a couple of minutes (Haha, you guys thought I was going to say hours) on the treadmill, a few more minutes on a bike (I forgot how hard those seats are), and then I went to try out the weight contraption they had. I’m a petite girl, and while in extreme circumstances I will grunt and bear the pain of carrying a heavy load, I mostly just let others do it. So I set the contraption on the lightest weight, and pretended I was in that bow flex commercial. I was the hot sixty year old grandma, showing off my abs of steel. Hear me roar…..only I reached up to get the bar to pull down, and of course my petite little arms cann’t reach that high, so I had to stand up and the dang thing hit me across the face.

I am not sure weight training and I are meant to be.

I do my best to avoid talking to women in the gym but they always approach me. Some I know and others just want a spot or some advice. I have noticed a change in what women wear to the gym (tight shorts, loose shirt LOL) but there are those that just keep it all tight

maybe you're more of a push-ups, sit-ups type of girl. If the first thing you get in a relationship is hit in the face, you should def run away.

If something hits a covert operative across the face it is likely to disappear

Can I come over and lick the sweat off your heaving chest?

it's soo true. its all about tna pants and lululemon gear.

i'm not one of them though, since i rock york/seneca gym shirts and basketball shorts.

i notice that the women with the least amount of clothes, the smallest waist and the largest breasts, are most likely strippers. i'm not saying that to be spiteful, but the boobs arent naturely proportioned. think about it. them going to the gym is a job requirement anyway...

I use the gym at work. Unfortunately I don't have the problem of women working out in skimpy outfit distracting me... *sigh*

I hate the gym ..unlike u i dont have the good fortune of being petite....trying to lose the last 20lbs and instead i am going in the other direction...the problem with the outfits is the the skimpy ones dont hide the spare tires we trying to lose!

LOL! Give weight training another go. It's brutal but rewarding...so they say!

I have to admit that I hate gyms. It's a little like a mini society that I don't fit into.

With that being said, I really like your recent posts with scantily clad women.

Thanks!

Holla.
