Sweating it out at the Dinner Table

Friday, July 16, 2010

It was the first time I had ever heard it, and it wasn't even from my own child. "Yes, you're embarassing me." What? I embarass you? You who wears ripped, stained, cutoff clothes on occasion? And what about that shirt with a dog and a cloud coming from its backend that says "blame the dog?" Well, this certainly is a first.

I guess there really is a first time for everything. No one's ever really been embarassed by me before, at least that have come out and admitted it. I do on occasion accidentally wear toothpaste on my shirt. This time my husband was embarassed to go out to eat with me while I was still wearing my a-bit-sweaty workout clothes. I didn't stink and there were no visible wet spots. Geez, I guess I can be a bit of a fitness junky sometimes when my own post-workout body doesn't even bother me anymore.

I have always wondered what fitness instructors, especially celebrity ones like Jillian, do when they have to teach classes or personally train people all day. Do they shower just to take their lunch break? Probably not. And I've heard about regular people who work out on their lunch breaks. You can't tell me that they don't sweat. Just a little. And then return to work in the same clothes. I wholeheartedly agree that pit stains and skunk smells are totally gross. But I sort of revel in that post-workout glisten and glow.

And it's not like we were going anywhere fancy.
