How Annoying Are: New Year's Gym Members

Yesterday was back to reality for me.  Back to work after some time off, back to our daily routine, back to cooking dinner, and back to the gym.

After a long day's work, the last thing I want to do is work out for an hour, but hey, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, and bathing suit season is just around the corner, and no one wants to see me in a string bikini after Christmas - trust me.

So I walk into my gym yesterday, and whatta ya know?  It's packed!  Not an available elliptical, stair climber, or treadmill in sight.  Are you kidding, I thought?  Then it hit me - it's packed in here because of all the new members who have made new year's resolutions to lose weight, or to be healthier.

Well, what do I have to say to them - Get out!  We all know that they'll probably drop off in a month or so, and go back to their unhealthy ways.  Well that is a little harsh, I know, but really.  I do get annoyed when I've been a member who consistently goes to the gym for the past three years and I can't get onto a machine. UGH!

Anyway, that's all for my first rant of the year.  Cross your fingers that I can jump onto a stepper tonight, or there will be blood.

  1. I hear ya! I call them the Resolutioners, and my favorites are those who get on the machine and choose the easiest program and no resistance. Do they even break a sweat? Because that's what I'm there to do!!
