I'm Stinky...Are You?

Last week I woke up at 5am to go to my spin class. As I headed into the kitchen to fill my water bottle I saw the last gallon of milk sitting empty on the counter. I knew then that Chris had got up in the middle of the night for a fixin' of chocolate chips and promptly finished off the end of the milk. I knew that in two hours my sons would be up and if I thought I could pass cereal off as breakfast I was going to need to hit the store on the way home from the gym.

Now when you're at the gym particularly in a class with closed doors it doesn't matter how hard the air conditioner is blowing you're going to sweat. The bonus about this is that everyone is sweating, so if you stink the person next to you does too and it doesn't matter. We're on in this together. You want to stink, it means you're working hard.

It's what happens after the gym that is questionable.

So from the gym I drove to Wegman's my favorite grocery store to pick up milk. The bonus to this is that they have an area right in the front to grab milk, eggs, etc, so you don't have to head to the back of the store.

So as I walked in I wondered, what are the people around me thinking? She's in workout clothes in the store? She stinks! Gee, I wish I already had my workout done for the day? I went in feeling proud and a little sorry for those around me but a girls got to do what a girls got to do....or should I say mom?

So if its up to me. Getting it all done is more important that if I stink...sorry people. You're going to just have to deal.


  1. I can't ever see myself getting to the point where I would be up that early for a workout (let alone a spin class!) That takes some real dedication!

  2. That's a cool t-shirt. Me want. I also want to take a spin class just to see how sweaty and stinky I can get!=-)

  3. I was just thinking the same thing as Melissa, I want that T-shirt!

  4. I love spinning! It's my favorite workout class.
