It’s life Gym, but not as we know it.

So, we joined a gym.

Crikey, Elizabeth!

I just had to get that off my chest.

[oddly, i’m quite looking forward to actually getting off my arse and doing something constructive.  it might even be fun]

I’ve never been a sporty person.  Well, I say never, but I really mean that I haven’t been a sporty person since the age of nearly-twelve, when I developed boobies and felt rather self-conscious and awkward about them.  The boys didn’t help when they pinged my bra strap and the girls didn’t help when they got all jealous because they didn’t have boobies yet.  Because I was ultra tall and ultra skinny [with an incredibly boney arse, as my nana (-with the long garden) liked to remind me] as a child I was always good at the high jump.  But never the long jump, strangely. 

I was really good with an egg and spoon.

Go me!

Yesterday I bought my first pair of trainers for about fifteen years.  They only cost me a fiver.  I’m very cheap sometimes.

I have nothing else to say on the matter.

  1. Enjoy the Gym……….hey there is a party for Halloween in Chicago, you and the Blokey are invited…….let me know if you are interested and I will get you the details………Nifer will come if you do! 

  2. I’m jealous.  When Dave gets back on the fire dept. we’re planning to join one with a pool so my oldest can work on her leg strength and I can work on my paunch.  Keep me posted so I can get encouragement from your gym exploits!  Egg and spoon eh?  :)  M

  3. I’ve lost count of the number of gyms I have joined in the last 4 years.  And I love going but then I want to go with someone, and then there are scheduling conflicts.  So now I have bought a workout video that I can do in my house for either 10, 20, or 30 minutes or combinations.  Good luck! 
    And I always had the urge to hold the egg and had to mentally make my self stop grabbing for it with the other hand!

  4. ryc: I dont know if he went for sure… but my guess is that since he got off work early that he went… as for dating exclusively well we never had that talk… but he did tell me he didn’t have any other girlfriend and I said the same to him (not having any other boyfriend)… so its sort of been insinuated…. but its not even that he went that bugs me…. it just bugs me that he didn’t tell me he was going when I was chatting on IM with him right before he went. Not that he has to check in or anything but it just would be the natural normal thing to mention it when someone mentions your leaving work early. Had he done that even if he didnt want me to go I would’ve been content. Just acknowledge that I matter in that smallest of small ways…. its a tiny thing but it really bothered me… and your right I can’t let him know it bothered me…. *sighs*
