Fat Pants and Muffin Tops



I'm having a fat moment.  I can't really say a fat day, because I feel like it's lasting weeks.  I've decided that it's probably a bad thing that my belly (and sides) hang over my favorite jeans.  Something must be done.                    
                                                                          
The wonderful, nameless man I've been seeing works in a health club and keeps trying to get me to come work out.  I feel really weird about it, though.  First of all, there was a time in the not so distant past that I had a super serious case of exercise bulimia.  I was a nut!  I worked out 20+ hours a week and was never satisfied.  I have ZERO desire to become that obsessed ever again.  Secondly, I just think it would be a little uncomfortable to go work out where he works.  Don't you?  I mean, it's not like I have a membership (he has offered free memberships to three of my girlfriends, too, just to get me up there...) and I don't really want his employees to be all like, "Hey!  Isn't that the chick Bossman is dating?!"  I'm so not up for that.  AND how weird would it be to work out in front of a guy that you want to be interested in you??  I mean really?!?!  Stinky, sweaty exercise girl?  Ew.

So, after much contemplation, I have had to make some seriously tough decisions.  If I really want to lose this muffin top, I'm gonna have to make some sacrifices.  *sad panda*

1. Cut out the beer, wine, and vodka...  Ok, maybe only the sugary flavored vodka....
2. No Hot Tamales...  Or Swedish Fish...  Or candy period.  Damn it.
3. Stop eating delicious fried food (a.k.a Buffalo Wings) at ridiculous times of the night.
4. Add a little cardio to my life...  *Wink wink*  Maybe this weekend while the kids are gone would be a good time to fit that in....  I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.....

Definitely #4! And I would NOT work out in front of a guy I was interested in- he doesn't need to see all that.

I couldn't work out in front of anybody who wasn't legally bound to me! It could be disastrous!

I don't like working out in front of guys, period, especially ones I'm interested in. Maybe that's one reason I love Jazzercise so much ??? It's all women. And NO MIRRORS! HOORAY!

There's something very intimate about working out for some reason. I remember a high school boyfriend coming to see me at the gym and I was horrified.

And I'd say go for the "cardio" this weekend!

Seeing your fat wobble maybe... how embarrassing. I'm going for my brisk walk now in the dark kekeke

Good luck with that. I do have friends that go with the SO to the gym and love it. Another way to get the blood pumping which usually follows you.

Go for the cardio, repeatedly :)

The only one that sounds appealing is #4. I say amp up #4 and forget the rest.

I can honestly say, I have only been successful at #4. Wow. I suck at reaching goals.
