I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

You look like you were at the gym....or not

You know when you go to the grocery store or the mall or something and there are those women shopping in their workout clothes? Sometimes it's the itty bitty shorts and a tank top, or the swishy sounding running shorts; sometimes it's spandex...whatever it is, it's really something that wasn't meant to be worn out of the gym or home for obvious reasons. Every once in a while, if you have to do it, it's understandable, but these women don't seem like they do this out of necessity. First of all, their hair is down and cutely fixed, and they're wearing make-up. Fresh make-up. Nothing about them looks like they've just sweated. You wouldn't be buying milk if you were on your way TO the gym so I'm guessing that if they even were at the gym at all, the most they could have done was walk around naked in the locker room and then put their clothes back on to go home. Maybe they think that just the act of putting on workout clothes is close enough to a workout, or maybe they think it makes them athletic. My grocery store is often full of cute guys who look like they just worked out, so maybe the women are single and going for the "we have the same habits" look. If the guys fall for it then they're dumb, because I know that I for one sweat when I work out. I actually pour sweat and turn red when I work out. I wouldn't go anywhere after that because I'd fear grossing people out with my smell. If you didn't break a sweat then you didn't work out and I think these ladies need to realize that they look dumb shopping in their running shorts and tennis shoes. They need to either actually go to the gym, or go home, and put some real clothes on because we all know they ain't been working out!

i agree! i went grocery shopping at 9am this morning and it was FULL of women in workout clothes. only 1 in 5 really looked like they had worked out (pony tail, no makeup).

i thought about maybe the fact that that's just what they wear to be confortable?

Totally! I was just at the HEB and saw several women like this. One older lady actually had on a headband (like, not the flexible kind- the hard, half-moon kind) and I know that nobody works out in that. My hair is all over the place. Oh- and I turn really red and sweaty too.

The ones I think are going for comfort are the ones that look like they were chilling at home and then were like, ok...if I have to go get groceries I will...and just put on sweats and a t-shirt. I live by the Arboreteum - people care too much about appearances to just be comfortable. But I'm glad I'm not the only one that notices these women.
