Be warned... I'm judging.

Food Report... Yes I know it's a dieting website but the dinner I made last night was amazing and worth every calorie look it up. Dinner was Mongolian Beef with some egg drop soup. Family LOVED it. They actually said when we open a restaurant that will be on the menu.
Go to recipes and search Mongolian Beef. WHOA! it's the really really dark one with the pretty green onions on top. Funny thing is that is EXACTLY how mine looked!
Exercise report.. Commence Judging:
Now I don't mean to offend anyone here but this might. I work out at Planet Fitness and/or Anytime Fitness. I feel like Planet fitness is the Walmart of fitness and there is no judgment (lol I know people are judging!). The caliber of people is very eclectic. There are people that I would never in a million years want to visit with or workout with for that matter but I always think we are all here for the same reason and good for all of us. Yesterday I signed up for 2 of their half hour classes. First class... Back... I was like are you kidding me? These women would stop and chit chat sit on the machine and talk talk talk I could barely get my sets done. They did not realize if you are going to chit chat KEEP MOVING! That actually irritated me. Then I had one lady asking how to do an exercise as I was doing and concentrating on my exercise. (I mean like eyes closed breathing with the lift of the weights concentration) I heard her say... Oh.... when I didn't answer her. (Yikes). Those women bugged me to death. I mean really your turkey's I know you've all cooked weight more than what you were lifting. Heck a 12 pack of soda probably weights more.
Then I went to the next class... Abs... YIKES this was super hard and I was so impressed with how fantastic the other ladies did. There were only 2 other people and they were fit! I had to really push to keep up and I loved it. The one lady held her plank for a minute and a half with a 10lb weight on her butt! They didn't chit chat, well if they did it was during the exercise because we were on intervals with little rest. Love love love it!
Whew, I know it was bad of me to judge in the first class but it's hard not to. I'm there to get my workout in and get out. Now I don't mind if they want to talk after class... If I have time I don't mind that at all, like the one lady when I was walking out said bye then said let's workout again. I was like Okay sounds good.
The trainer... I wasn't impressed at first but now I really like her. I've been to several of her classes and she finally understands that I want a hard workout and I'm not there for social time. Her workouts are not totally planned but always hard. GREAT work Lydia!
Planet fitness.... I like that you offer something for everyone. Very novel idea for a gym to have and partake in. You have people over 500 pounds then you have the person that weights 90 pounds running like someone is trying to kill them on a treadmill. Either way a person can go in and workout and feel good about themselves at an affordable price. If someone tells me they can't afford the gym I have to think they just don't want to. $10 a month is the price of a couple latte's in a month or 1 meal out to dinner. We've all got time and the money for this one!
Whew, now that I've vented all of that out I feel better and again I'm sorry if I've offended!
Happy Hump Day!
