OT - Tone-up Tuesday

Aniki's picture

Ix-nay on the oning-tay. It's a Terribly Tubby Tuesday for me, STalkers. The boss brought in FIVE DOZEN DONUTS to welcome aboard the new employees. With less than 3 hours of sleep, Bad Aniki snagged 2 donuts to fight the craptastic aftereffects of insomnia. On the flip side, it's so bloody hot in here, that we're all sweating it off. Well, some of 'it'.

Speaking of sweating...

Who remembers when people (mostly women) wrapped themselves up in Saran Wrap or wore some vile suit and laid out in the sun to SWEAT OFF THE POUNDS? In-freakin-sane!

Some people luuuuuuuv to sweat. Some are indifferent. Some LOATHE sweating. If sweating was an Olympic sport, I'd be in contention for the Gold. Can you tell I am NOT a fan of sweating?

My preferred exercise is swimming. If I'm going to sweat, I may as well be soaked to the skin. No sweating with swimming, it's easier on my aging joints, and I can feel my stress floooooowwwwing out my fingertips and toes and I cruise through the waves.

Sweating. Yay or Nay?

LMAO. I just ordered new thermogenics this morning... I'm alright with sweating tbh. Swimming is still my favorite though!!! Especially since I'm probably sweating super bad, but I'll never know!

I've been REALLY good about getting back to the gym. My muscle recovery tracker is lit up like a Christmas Tree right now. I LOVE that!!! Been eating fairly decent too. This fasting diet I'm trying out with DH makes me moody though... We eat 1-9... By noon I want to eat people's faces... It's been an issue. But I've giving it a solid try before I throw in the towel and go back to eating a million times a day.

Sweating is yay. I take pre-workout and thermogenics to help increase the sweat during a workout. I do however have to admit... I have to shower ASAP after a hard work out. I hate the feeling of the dried on sweat... BLECK!

PA, I definitely feel like I could peel off a layer of sweat comparable to canvas after a hot summer day of sweating. BLECH!

Psssst..... I would probably eat my freakin' fingernails!

I do too! It's disgusting... Yesterday after the gym I was dripping and thoroughly disgusted lol.

Don't tempt me Aniki. I get crazy hungry!

Just so you know, you do sweat when you swim, so always stay hydrated. Biggrin

I know it's easy for me to say, but you can walk away from the donuts. LOL ((Hugs))

I'm eating steel cut oats for breakfast now. That stuff sticks to your ribs! Hopefully it will help me continue to lose. Now if I could just walk away from the 1-2 beers each weekend. LOL I think I will try abstaining this weekend.

Oh, I know. The beauty is that I can't tell!

FB, those damn donuts are right by the door. Every time I leave my desk (ex: bathroom), I walk by them. Sigh. They were small...

I 99% Fat Free popcorn and a pear for lunch.

Ugh - I think bringing donuts is kinda passive aggressive. LOL

There's a lady here who brings them pretty often and she's kinda fluffy. It's almost like she wants everyone to be fluffy like she is. Not falling for it. Biggrin

Wink

If I don't hydrate well for swimming, I get leg cramps. Sad

I hate sweating and being hot, which is also why I hate excercise!

Your Saran wrap comment made me think of the advice given to woman in a book published in the 1970's to greet their husbands's at the door wrapped only in Saran wrap. I think it was in "Total Loving" by J, and it was advice on how to make your life love better. She also wrote "The Sensous Woman" which helpedwomen discover their own sexuality.

Damn I sweat like crazy. Look like I jumped in the river and just got out. But I like sweating. Make me feel like I'm getting a good workout.
