I think I hate old people!

I am really worried about this statement but let me explain. Yesterday I had to recruit so I went to Food Lion to get some treats and I was already pissed because I couldn't have any of the chocolate I was buying. It was around 10am and I think this is prime shopping time for old people. Well Food Lion's customer service was taken a turn for the worse just like the damn stock market that has ruined my 401K (down 20K as of last Tuesday....ummm hmmm thats right). Well old people don't move as quickly as I would like...hello shouldn't they know that I got stuck in traffic and have to be at the school in 15 minutes. Well this old woman was complaining about the service. She had 5 boxes of banana cream Oreos. Ummm, I didn't get the memo that Oreos had started coming out in new flavors but I knew I was meeting with Gigi that afternoon so I just needed to block it out of my mind. After the cashier, who I believed had never smiled in her life, was done I headed to the parking lot. Granny had almost hit my car and took forever to put it in reverse. It was like old people were everywhere.

After recruiting I made it to my come to Jesus meeting with Gigi, who happens to be old but I forgot to tell you guys this yesterday. Gigi is a retired teacher and you know I had to ask..."were you a member of VEA?" Gigi responded with the correct answer "Of course". Thank God for her she was because the way my hips and thighs are hurting from her damn squats today I would be tempted to hurt her but she was VEA so I will be nice.

So anyway back to why I think I hate old people....This morning I couldn't get my big ass out of the bed to start this regimen. It was cold, Ella was so peaceful but Gigi was haunting me while I tried to sleep...."It is now or never for you Robin" so I got up...thankfully I slept in my workout clothes so I wouldn't have an excuse for not going. I learned that trick at a Weight Watchers meeting from a skinny bitch who had no need to be at a WW meeting.

Well I made it to the gym and I am doing this group of machines that are in a row...I forget what Gigi called it but basically I feel it is like being put back in Kindergarten after being out of college for 10 years. I tried to tell her that I was able to use free weights but she kindly reminded me that I had decided to drink beer and eat every appetizer in a 10 mile radius instead of working out and I had to go back to Kindergarten. Screw you Gigi! Well I went to start my first machine and sure as hell there was a Granny just sitting there chatting to a friend. Hello get the F off that machine and let my hell begin. Does she know that it took an hour to talk myself out of bed? And she was smiling...doesn't she know that she needs to be in pain and hating every minute? I finished with all of my machines and it was time for abs. If you've seen me lately you will know that my abs are basically non existent so I was dreading this. Well hot damn there is another Granny on the treadmill eyeing me like a hawk. First ab machine I went full strong because I knew she was watching me. Second machine I thought I was Gumby and my top half was about to separate from my bottom half. I looked at Granny and she was just watching me waiting for me to give up after 10 but I did my whole program. Screw you Granny I did it!

Here is what I did machines...even though the Grannies tried to railroad me and I did an hour on the treadmill. Shout out for the day goes to Brooke for loaning me her ipod until Santa comes. I burned a total of 552 calories on the treadmill. Wooohooo!

So I've heard from some of you and you seem to really like this blog. Honesty is the key and Courtney you know I will fall into a keg at some point. Brie...I find it pretty ironic Queen goes by Gigi as well. Love to the mother!

OK I am off to shower because the toxins coming out of my body are disgusting and if I am transforming to a Queen I have to be presentable at my meeting this afternoon. I hope I can get up off the floor....Richmond girls check on me and make sure I did...these muscles aren't too excited about what I just went through today...maybe Gigi knows what she is doing by sending me back to Kindergarten!

Rah, I love you!! Welcome to the blogosphere!

Both of your posts are hilarious, and are totally inspiring to get off of my butt (when my ankle heals). Definitely keep up with the working out and the posting.

And I hate old people too - mostly how slow-moving they all seem to be. If you're going to move slowly, at least get the heck out of everyone else's way!

Now you see and understand what I deal with on an everday basis at work, Ra! haha!

maybe you can wait and fall into that keg when I get there. that will give you a full three weeks to behave!
