I had been eyeing the barbell the whole time and when I asked a member of the staff to show me how to hold it an stand correctly he said the bar alone was too heavy for me to try and that I was too new. Now I am too mad and embarrassed to try. I should have popped him one..


WHAT! Too new???

Unfortunately the majority of people that work in gyms seem to be massive tools!

Hook me up with a mint tea please!

I get home every night from work at 9:30pm. Quick dinner, make lunch an dinner for the next day an got to bed by 10:30pm. Up at 5:55am to hit the gym for an hour and a half. Get home around 8:15am, shower and catch the 9:20am train into the city. It's all worth it for my job and my health!! Some down time with my awesome cat and with my boyfriend would be fantastic. I am not even as tired as I should be at the end of the day an I have being vegan to thank for that. Today was cardio half hour on treadmill and a half hour on elliptical. Leg machines 50 reps inner and outer thighs hip extensions 25 inner and outer each leg and leg lifts. Ab machine 25 each side and sit ups and crunches when I get home. Worth it for the tempeh buffalo wings and spinach dip being made for the Super Bowl!!

Thank you. This forum has helped me learn so much even after 10 years of being vegan!! Diet is a huge part in keeping healthy but I was void of the other part for so long. Exercise has changed me for the better. This is forever.
