Dear Gym New Year's Resolutioners,

Let's be honest. This month every year sucks for both of us. You and your hundreds of similarly minded friends drag yourselves reluctantly into the gym at peak hours. You grumble about the crowds. You don't wash off the machines you sweat all over. More importantly, you don't want to be there. You're a New Year's resolutioner. You made this resolution because a) After a month and a half of cookies and rich food, you were feeling fat in your New Years Eve cocktail dress, and b) You were drunk.

Your presence makes my life miserable too. You take up all the parking spots. You take up all the machines, going at a snail's pace, while reading Harry Potter and drinking a Starbuck's frappacinno.

Let's make 2010's New Year's Resolution something we can both enjoy. Just resolve to not go to the gym and spare yourself the misery. This in turn makes me less homicidal when I want to run and it also saves you your gym membership money, because let's face it..by February you're not going to step foot in this gym again anyway.

XOXO

Erin

Dear Gym New Year's Resolutioner,

Fuck you. I don't judge you while you're working out, and I hate that sorry ass excuse. Any time I see anyone sweating their ass off at the gym that was my size, all I'm thinking is "You go girl". Don't act like I didn't go through the same shit. I wasn't given any breaks. I'm still not, which is why I'm there 5 days a week. Not because I want to be, because I have to be.

But you know what? If you got time during your work out to think about how you look or what other people might be thinking, you aren't working out hard enough. Go harder.

What ticks me off are people that use every excuse not to commit to what they supposedly want. If you're going to go to the gym, work the fuck out. Work up a sweat. If you aren't breathing hard, go the fuck home. Walking at a snail's pace because you don't want to exert yourself is retarded, it's a waste of your time, money, and space. Do or do not. There is no try, because everything you will or will not do is not dependent upon who is looking at you or what your schedule is like. It's all on you. It's in your head. You're the only one that will make or break you.

Yes it's hard, yes it sucks, it never stops sucking.

Losing weight is hard. Being fat is hard.

Choose your hard.

XOXO

Erin

Hehe. I <3 u.

Retarded or not, I'm still walking at a snail's pace... because I don't want to die. I promise that I sweat! I just need to keep at it... problem is... for me, losing weight is hard. Sticking to it is hard. Being fat is EASY!

You're still my hero. ;)
