But, I'm here on this lovely, sunny Tuesday morning! Comin' at ya with another Fit Dish post with the wonderful hosts: Jessica @ Jill! Today's optional topic: Embarrassing Fitness Experiences. Ooh, this should be good!
It's almost noon and I'm just sitting down to get this post out. I had a brutal, yet satisfying physical training session this morning, came home, showered, had a late breakfast and throughout all of that I was pondering, "what in the world can I write about today?"
Confession #1: I am THE CLUMSIEST, awkward white girl that ever walked the earth so you'd think I would have some juicy moments to share. But I don't. Boo.. Knowing that I'm super clumsy and awkward causes me to be extra careful so maybe that's why I haven't had any mishaps (knock on wood).
I woke up later than usual, rushed to get the kids ready for school. Made it to my physical training session with only a couple minutes to fix my hair in the bathroom. I felt "off" today. Most likely due to the lovely thing called mother nature. First of all, working out while on "that time of the month" is hard enough. But today I felt a little light headed and loopy. I was there, which was half the battle so I trudged on. My trainer had me warm up with the dreaded ropes then we went on to the step up stand or "box jump"... I never told him I was feeling a bit off because I hate sounding like a baby. So he had me jump up (on the lowest level) using one leg! Umm...in my head I knew this was a recipe for disaster! And sure enough, after a few hops up and down on one leg, I jumped up, hit the stand with my toes and fell forward-catching myself with my hands which protected my face from getting smashed into the pole in front of me. I said out loud, "THAT was embarrassing!" We both laughed although he looked terrified every jump afterwards, but I made it through and didn't make a big scene. I was completely off balance throughout the entire session and I felt like a complete idiot. To my surprise he told me I looked great and he can see that I'm much stronger than day one. Phew!
I do have a really embarrassing thing about myself that I can share. What the hay, we're all friends right?
Well, here goes....
My butt tends to sweat a lot. Ah, there I said it! (Not on a regular basis, just when working out.) And although I wear a workout skirt over my leggings (for modesty) sometimes sweat likes to soak through the leggings and appear on the skirt. Well one day at the gym I had an amazing, sweat in your eyes kind of workout (and butt) and afterwards I walked around a bit, got some water, went to the back to stretch then left. Well after going outside I realized my back side had a nice spot at the top of my bum that said, "hey I'm a butt sweater!"
I was pretty mortified and wondered if anyone noticed! For about a week or two I kept telling my husband, "check my butt". He would either tell me yes or no but either way there's nothing I can do about it. haha pretty gnarly, I know. Don't worry, if you ever visit the gym I go to, I always make sure to disinfect the machines with seats really well. ;-)
So what's something embarrassing that's happened to you during a workout sesh or run?
