So today was such a lovely day I hated being inside.... so what did I do??? I covered the grass with some cardboard for where my garden will go to start clearing the grass so I can hand till and hooked my basset up in his harness and headed to the lake. We hit one of the nature trails. Silly me didn't start my gps tracking until 15 mins after we started hahahaha. So 90 mins and 5.6k later we headed home. We would have done more but he was tired from all the sniffing and walking. Poor pup lol. Watched some basketball with my mom since it was the FINAL border wars showdown. My team prevailed in the end YAY!!! Diet off track but not to bad. Decided to start working on a baby blanket for who I have no idea. Maybe I will sell it on Craigslist....

It was an even better day today!! Teddy and I didn't stay inside all day but we had to wait until laundry was done before we could run out the door! We hit up 2 trails today (poor guy is still pooped from yesterday) only to find them muddy, rocky and totally off the beaten path! I was in heaven, Teddy wasn't. I think with being a weekend warrior trail hiker he will get used to it and build up his endurance. We went for 90 mins again and did 6.7k hiking. By the time I got to yoga I was sore from the 2 days of hiking.

Cardio: 90 min hike 6.7k, 60 min yoga

Breakfast: banana protein pancakes
Snack: 1 brown rice cake, 1 peanut butter cookie larabar
Lunch: 1/2c red grape halves, 2 oz spring mix salad, double chocolate probar
Snack: 1/3c dried cranberries, 1/4c walnuts
Dinner: 1 bottle Naked Green Machine, 2 scoops protein

I put on my scrubs this morning and as I sit here I really begin to realize that I am much smaller than I thought. I could fit a friend in here with me and we would still have room to move around I bet. Guess it is time to phone a friend and get my scrubs take in cause I wont' buy new one!

I am so glad to be home and ending my day! I feel like I have been violated, well I know I have actually. *gets on soap box* I think people at the gym tend to forget manners and personal space. For 1) if I am lifting don't interrupt me. 2) don't invade my personal bubble. 3) don't do 1 and 2 all at once!! I was lifting minding my own business when a regular a the gym I barely know walked up behind me and started blowing on my neck!!! When I kicked my foot back he was so close my foot didn't go far. Finished my rep jumped away pulling my headphones out yelling get out of my bubble. All he did was laugh and call me Dorothy (Wizard of Oz).... He carried on for a couple mins and finally went away. This is now the second time someone from the gym has done that. Next time I won't be nice.... That is all.

I would have politely asked him his name, and then thank him, and head for the office to complain about him. You might not be the only woman he has harassed like that. Of course I might go on to tell him that I was going to the office to call the police and file a sexual harassment charge against him, and let it slip out that my boyfriend is a lawyer, and a damn good one at that! Lying of course, but I would let the office know that he did harass you while you were working out. Our gym has a zero tolerance for that.

I just asked my friend what she would do in that situation, and she said she would ask him if he was wanting to use the machine/weights next, and could he please wait for her to get done with her set first.
She is so nice and polite. Then again, she is a teacher, and maybe she would thing that he needed to be taught gym etiquette.
I think I would have said "WTF? I'm using this now, wait your f**cking turn!" and pretend to have a roid rage building up inside of me. Yeah, in my dreams. I am such a wimp. That is why I would go running to the office to complain. It would be cool if I could have jungleinthefrunk's posing stare, and stare him down! Don't need to say anything at all with that stare.
