The 5 People You Meet at the Gym

The following are based on my own observations from hitting the gym. Take a guess as to which one I am. heh.

#1 The Beauty Queen - She's in perfect shape and knows it. Her make-up gets fully applied before coming to the gym. No matter where she shops for her work out gear, she can't find spandex small enough for her tight little rump. Hair is long and flowing and never manages to get put in a pony tail because pony tails aren't hot. Elliptical dweller.

#2 The Meat-head - Definitely taking the roids. Muscles are huge and doesn't believe in T-shirts with sleeves. Tanning beds are his best friend and he has no shame blatantly looking you up and down as you walk by. Grunting while lifting is a must.

#3 The Marathon Runner - They hog the treadmills for hours and put all the walkers to shame. Always have the coolest and latest running shoes, shorts and shirts always match and the Nalgene water-bottle proudly sport the "26.2" sticker.

#4 The Quick Fixer - They want to get fit, but don't want to do the work. Short attention spans causes them to try out every machine for about 2 minutes each. Sketcher easy tones shoes are must for cutting corners. The bigger the sole the better. They talk to everyone because focusing on exercise is not a priority. Surely just being at the gym makes them thinner.

#5 The One Track Minder - Probably were in shape at one point in their lives but those days are gone. Goes to the gym because they have to, not because they want to. Social interaction is not a priority which limits facial expressions to anything but inviting. Headphones stay on at all times and as soon as they are done with the task at hand, they are outta there...probably will grab a pizza on the way home!

Which are you?? Did I miss one?

Dear MapQuest,
Please add an "avoid ghetto" option.

You know you're getting chubby when you say "I'm getting chubby" and no one corrects you.

Looks like it's time to utilize that gym membership!

For those of you that don't know, my boyfriend's name is Dexter. I can't tell you how many times that when I've told someone his name, I've heard "Like the tv show??!"

Curiosity go the best of me (us), so this weekend, Dexter and I started the first season of Dexter. Verdict is in and the show is ADDICTING! Seriously, I totally dig it.

Be warned, the theme of the show is a little heavy (serial killer) but here's the gist of it as found on Wikipedia:

Orphaned at the age of three, Dexter Morgan is adopted by Miami police officer Harry Morgan and his wife Doris. After discovering that young Dexter has been killing neighborhood pets, Harry believes that the boy is a psychopath and teaches him "The Code" as a way to channel his violent urges towards people who "deserve it". In this code, Dexter's victims must be killers themselves who have murdered the undeserving and will likely do so again. Dexter must also have proof that the criminals are guilty. Most importantly, Dexter must never get caught. Flashbacks throughout the series show Harry, who died several years before, instructing Dexter in how to appear normal and cover his tracks.

Wanted: A Thing

I need a "thing." Everyone has their thing. You know, something you are so passionate about that you can't not talk about it? Whether it's photography or fashion or ministry or underwater basket weaving, it's seems like everyone has one. Everyone but me. What do you do when you've lost your thing?

My thing used to be basketball. It defined me for 10 years of my life. From middle school to high school college and then competing overseas, I was "the jock." Now- I've tried the coaching "thing" (not for me) and there's not really an outlet for me to be a part of it anymore. No leagues for women or my only other option is open gym's once a week with old men who don't know how to play. Plus, I'm definitely NOT in the shape I used to be in.

So now what?

I've seen people get really into their blogs, which is awesome- but with 5 1/2 followers, I'm definitely not there yet. Photography is appealing to me, but I don't even know where to begin. Instruments? Kick boxing? Community service?  I don't know.

Any suggestions? C'mon, help this tall girl find her "thing."
