hallelujah

in my neck of the woods…it was hot yesterday
actually hot doesn’t seem like an appropriate word.
it was sweltering…hard to breathe kind of hot.

it was 31 degrees out…with the humidity it felt like 41.
for my American peeps…it was approximately 105.8 out there.

Our seasons are always extreme.  if it weren’t for all the rain we have had
i would think we totally missed spring and hit summer head on.

anyways….

my GB completely backed out of going to the gym yesterday
something about her not wanting to die lol
if you read my blog you would know that my gym is not air conditioned.

i hummed and hawed over it all.  do i go or do i not?

i decided i would go.  if i felt like i was going to die i would just leave…
but not without raising a ruckus and complaining.
that’s right.
i was in a pissy mood just thinking about walking into that place.

So i raced home and walked the puppy….got changed and started walking over to the gym
every step i took i got pissier –  i had a dialogue going on in my head.
if the a/c wasn’t on…i needed to talk to someone who could make that happen.
i was in the mood to bring out bitchy bee.

it should be illegal…air should be on at all times in that place.

but you know what?  it really doesn’t matter.  they don’t have to turn it on…
i mean they got people locked in to contracts – who are paying that place every 2 weeks…
they are set…and they really don’t need to think about us and our needs any further.

so i walked in there…chip on my shoulder…speech prepared…
and it felt cooler in there.
cooler than it did outside.

could it be they finally turned the air on?
why yes…yes i think they did!!!!

it was on…barely.  it was still hot and muggy in there… but every once in a while the cool would touch your sweaty skin
and it felt like heaven.

but…

it was barely on.  i mean barely.
it was actually a pleasure to have stinky, sweaty people walk by me…because that generated a cool breeze for .2 seconds lol

i couldn’t even finish my work out…because i really thought i was going to die
so i skipped out 10 min early.
the thought of 10 more minutes on the elliptical made me cry inside..
but this gives me hope…maybe the a/c will stay on for the rest of the summer.
here’s to wishful thinking.

so after i finished up… i scooted over to McDonald’s and got my “special” iced coffee (no sugar or that syrup they use to sweeten it)
took a cold shower and sat outside in my undies…and checked emails 🙂
life couldn’t get better than that very moment.

drinking iced coffee in my undies…outside.
yeah baby.
summer is here.

turbo pants

i was going to blog about my night last night
but then heard about these pants on the radio
and well…the pants totally trumped what i was going to talk about.
 
have you heard of these pants?
they are called Turbo Pants.
there are a couple of pictures of these on the link i am posting at the end.
 
apparently these pants are made with 3 layers…i believe 2 of them being cotton and one rubber.
anyways these pants promote weight loss…and have been a huge success in Europe.
 
from what i understand, these pants are skin tight.  even putting them on makes you look 2 inches smaller.
talk about skinny jeans doing their job.
 
these pants apparently cause you to lose weight.
why?
well as they said on the radio…they promote “fluid leakage”
umm….ewwww.
 
these pants are so tight and multi layered that of course you are gonna lose fluid…you’ll be sweating in them all day.
they also say these pants will massage your skin and so in turn they will reduce cellulite.
its soft cotton feels good on your skin.
 
you can wear these anywhere.  you can work out in them…wear them in the office…
you can wear them for 8 hours straight.  but i ask…can you breathe in them???
seriously…who would want to wear them????  can you imagine sitting in your own “fluid leakage”?  sweating in places you would rather not sweat?
ugh…i am so grossed out.
 
they also recommend that you wash these pants after every use.
you think???
dis-gust-ting.
 
the one pair i saw, retailed at about 250 bucks…craaaaaazy.
 
and i am sure that alot of people will buy into this weight loss gimmick.
 
people!!!!!  weight loss doesn’t just happen.  have you not figured this out already?
how many people do you think will buy these pants and eat a crap load of junk and pray for a miracle??
smarten up people!!
take your 250 bucks and join the gym!
 
give me my sweat pants…and let me go work out…i prefer to leak my fluids that way.
not sit in my own juices for 8 hours.
 
baaahhhh.
 
i am completely grossed out.
