Bekah and the Gym - A Love/Hate Relationship

January 18, 2010
Dear Gym Diary:
I'm finally going to the new gym I joined over a month ago. So far so good. With just a little effort I have lost the fluff weight I put on during the holidays. Now on to the already settled in, harder than crap to get off stuff. I am hopeful I'll look like Jessica Alba in no time.

Dear Gym Diary:
I'm still going to the gym on a regular basis and I've been trying to eat better. Wilbur says the trick to losing weight is 80% diet 20% exercise. But I'm not going to slack off in the exercise department just in case he's wrong.

Dear Gym Diary:
I worked out really hard today and was feeling great until I bumped into my ex at the gym . . . wait, let me rephrase, until I bumped into my ex at MY gym. He's not supposed to be there, he's supposed to go to a gym close to his house - 2 1/2 hours away! I'm sure he is still a very nice guy, he always was, but when I saw him all I could think about is my stuff that he never returned to me. I asked him for it a couple of times, but still nothing. I feel like it would be awkward to ask for it again after so much time has passed. Maybe I'll avoid the gym for a couple of days.

Dear Gym Diary:
I was getting ready for a combined birthday costume party for Nicole and Jon. I had most of my costume on but paused to make the salsa I was requested to bring. While trying to pop the pit out of an avocado the knife slipped and went straight through my finger. I had to go to the instacare in my Elastigirl costume to get a couple of stitches. I had to change my costume from Elastigirl to Violet because I could no longer do my hair in a cute little Elastigirl bob. Apparently bobs take 2 working hands. So I put on a terrible wig. I looked ridiculous and felt even worse. I still went to the party though. When I got there all of my super hot friends were dressed in super hot and sexy costumes. This is how immature and naive I am. It did not even occur to me that I should wear a costume that is sexy or super hot. No no, I went with a cartoon. I got the comment of "I can't take you seriously when you look like that" a couple of times, which cemented my feelings of bad costume decision. Blah! I should probably go back to the gym so I can wear something super hot and sexy to the next costume party

Dear Gym Diary:

I decided that since my finger is badly injured I can no longer go to the gym. I may have been actively looking for an excuse though. Who knows.

Dear Gym Diary:
I haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks. Now with only 10 days before the cruise I have given up on looking like Jessica Alba and have decided that I should just wear tankini's the entire time. Tankini's are hot, right? . . . Ugh! Oh who am I kidding.

Dear Gym Diary:
It has now been over a month since I last went to the gym. I went on my cruise and wore tankini's most of the time. The time spent in bikinis also consisted of me trying to pinch back my back-fat so it could not be seen in pictures. That proved unsuccessful. Awesome cruise though.

Dear Gym Diary:
Still haven't gone to the gym. I turned 29 today. I now know what's worse than being 28 and chubby. . . being 29 and chubby.

Dear Gym Diary:
Mary keeps asking me to go to the gym with her. I politely declined and went back to my samoas. Is it possible to die from eating too many girl scout cookies?

Dear Gym Diary:
After having a nice chat with my brother, Zo, he has convinced me that being 12 pounds over my ideal weight is not so bad and there is hope for me yet. Let's pray this motivates me to go back to the gym.

Dear Gym Diary:
When Mary asked me if I wanted to go to the gym with her tonight, I miraculously said yes. I chose to do the spinning bicycle - ouch. Maybe I can look like Jessica Alba by summertime.

If you are chubby then I guess that makes me obese! I think you look great! Just keep doing whatever it is that you are doing and dont stress! :)

P.S. If I ever have a costume party for my birthday, I would much rather you show up in a cartoon costume as opposed to a super hot sexy costume. That would just be weird...

Oh silly uber hot Bexxx! I think everyone in the world has 10lbs they always want to lose...well maybe except Jen, but all she does is work out cause she don't got a job. I agree with Wilbur about it being about what you eat though. I trained for a tri all last summer and didn't lose any weight!! Then this year I slacked on the gym and joined Weight Watchers and lost 20lbs!! I still have the elusive 10lbs I would love to lose though!

Ps- Your amazing Pina Coladas do not help in the weight lost department...but oh so yummy!!!
