I bring this up because when most of us think of old ladies, we think of old ladies who were purple hats or sweatshirts with birds on them, or things like that.
And when we think of what people should wear to the gym, we think of sweat pants and shorts and t-shirts and jog bras.
Weird transitional thought? Bear with me.
So yesterday I got there and was feeling pretty good. The scale informed me I'd lost about 3 pounds in 6 six weeks. Given what I have eaten and haven't exercised in that amount of time, I was pretty happy to see a negative number instead of a massive gain.
I then headed to Cardio Cinema where it's dark and no one judges you. Until now. I was getting a pretty good sweat going on a treadmill when an older lady walked past me. Granted it was dark, but it was really hard to miss what she was wearing.

Now I'm one to put the best construction on everything at first. So I figured she was coming in to have a word with someone and then she was headed to the pool.
Nope. She got on a recumbent bike and started pedaling. Hard.

I looked at that old lady on that bike wearing that one piece swimsuit with the frilly skirt and her old lady work out shoes...and I said, "EWWWWW!"
And then I made very sure I didn't get on the same bike she'd been on.
As I was leaving Gold's, I saw her continue her work out. (Again, it's really hard to miss a fat old lady...oh didn't mention she was a fluffy girl, about my size? Yeah, she was very fluffy...in a swimsuit working out like everything is normal.) She was on a treadmill, sweating away with the 20 somethings. Now granted, she probably had more material in her one piece suit with the frilly skirt than the 20 somethings had in their spandex shorts and fitted yoga tops. BUT, with the 20 somethings, there was ZERO chance of fanny cheek slipping out of those shorts. Getting a wide view of wrinkly old lady fanny was a VERY REAL POSSIBILITY.

Meanwhile, I'm too traumatized to work out today. I need to lie down.
Happy Independence Day to all my American friends! God Bless America!
