There is a guy who will not butt out of my business in the weight room. I try to work out early in the early morning since it’s a university gym and the evenings are usually filled with all the children and I don’t really have the desire or time to walk all the way across campus and get super sweaty at lunch. Anyway, there is this human who has been consistently bothering me the last three times I’ve gone in the morning. He works on campus, so I can’t just be a jerk and tell him to get lost, but I really want to punch him in the throat. He’s full of helpful hints and tips and all sorts of information about how I’m doing it wrong.
I usually do 3-5 sets of 3-5 lifts of heavy weights on each type of lift because that is what has been recommended to me by actual professionals. He keeps telling me to do light weights in high repetition so I don’t get too bulky. I am not worried about getting too many muscles, not in the least bit. In fact, that seems like a pretty good problem to have. Oh my God, I’m soooooo strong and I can open jars all by myself.
I even keep my earbuds in and try to ignore him but he has no problem tapping me to get my attention. If he was a a personal trainer, working in athletics, or teaching in the kinesiology department, I would feel slightly less annoyed because at least he would be someone who is a professional in that field giving advice. But no. Not at all.
I have no desire to change when I go to the gym because then it probably won’t happen, so I’m kind of at a loss. I have politely told him multiple times that I won’t be changing what I’m doing and that I don’t have time to visit while I work out. I really hate confrontation and it’s really awkward, but dude just goooooo awayyyyy, I’ve got a body that needs significant work.
Do men do this to other men? This has happened to me several times and it’s never because I’m standing there looking dumbfounded at some weights or trapped under a heavy bar. WHY??? If I want advice, I’ll pay for it.
It was 86 degrees on Monday. WTF!!! I AM NOT READY FOR THIS.
WALKING DEAD TIME SPOILER ALERT
Oh the tears. So many times. I cried when we we saw how dire Morgan’s life had become, when we learned how Duane had died, when Carl got the photo of Lori, when they left Morgan, and when the hitchhiker was dead. Okay, so pretty much anything with Morgan made me 18 kinds of sad. But I’m so happy that that storyline has been resolved. Years of wondering about his fate are finally over.
I also wonder if it’s hard on Rick to pass by someone on the road like that. I understand why he has to do it in order to keep his group safe, but as someone who was a public servant, that has to go against everything he used to believe in right? Also, why are they not desperately trying to recruit people. It’s one more person to hold a gun against the governor. Is that wrong?
And I’m SO HAPPY that Michonne is finally speaking because good God they need her badly. And her calling Carl out on his bullshit. ABOUT TIME.
That was such a great episode.
And high five for a week without awful Andrea!
