Gym pet peeves, a new book and I’m screwed

Happy hump day everybody!

My week has been flying by, I hope yours has too ūüôā


Monday: 30 minutes on the elliptical + upper body strength

Tuesday: 4 miles on dreadmill

Wednesday: 20 minutes on the elliptical + 1/2 of Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred (level 2)

While I was running on the dreadmill on Tuesday, I got to thinking about all the irksome little things that people do at the gym (what can I say, that thing is BORING). 


Here are my 3 top gym pet peeves:

1) People not wiping down the machines once they are finished, GROSS

2) When I am waiting for a machine, and there is someone who is barely using it (talking on their phone, walking at a turtle pace, zero resistance, etc.)

3) Those girls who basically wear a bikini (you have a hot bod, we get it) to work out

Any pet peeves that drive you crazy?

Anyway, today I got very excited because my new book finally came in…



Have you guys heard of it? ¬†The basic premise is that modern-day wheat is genetically altered to create manufacturers with the greatest yield at the lowest cost. ¬†This modern-day wheat is what’s making America fat.

I am not saying that I am going to go nuts and dive off into this wheat-free diet but I am interested in what Dr. Davis has to say. ¬†So we’ll see.

In other news, as I mentioned earlier, I ran 4 miles yesterday and you know what? ¬†It killed me. ¬†My hips and hamstrings are completely sore. ¬†I used to run 6 miles no problem, what happened? ¬†Winter. ¬†Winter is what happened. ¬†Anyway,I just realized that the Shamrock Shuffle 8K is this weekend. ¬†For some reason, I thought I had like 4 weeks until this sucker. ¬†Considering the fact that 4 miles completely put me on my ass, I would say I’m screwed! ¬†

Anyone else running a race this weekend?  If so, I hope that it will be warmer for you than it will be for me (48 degrees, FUN!).
