Today was my first visit to a gym. Ever.
I know. I know. How is that possible at the ripe old age of 43?
Anyway, today I went. I have a membership for a year. It was free. It's a great place. But, of course, since I've never been to a gym and I've heard that this particular gym is a bit... classy... for a gym, I stress over what to wear.
I call my neighbor and classy fashion gym short guru.
I tell her I'm just going to wear jeans. "WHAT?" she shrieks.
"NO JEANS. Get over to Penney's and buy some real clothes." (Remember, this is WV and Penney's is actually a classy choice for around here). She also knows that my clothes are all too big for me. I didn't think too much about that until...
I was introduced to certain muscle toning torture devices called WEIGHT MACHINES. Let's just say that baggy shorts are a VERY BAD IDEA on certain of those machines. I also learned that I'm not a real fan of my rear being elevated above my head as I lift weights. Especially in baggy shorts.
Now, I also noted some of the "fashion" at this place and decided that some people are just paranoid about the fashion police.
One man, wearing gym shorts held up by a BELT most certainly did not receive any fashion memos.
Back I go again tomorrow. This time to do water walking in the pool with the 80+ crowd. Doesn't my life just sound fun, fun, fun? :) I admit it, I'm really going so that I can lounge in the whirlpool situated next to the pool. :) That's exercise, right?
