This morning was all over the place, to say the least, but we covered some important ground. Remember, it’s all for science.
I’ve had a gym membership since December and I’ve been a total of 3 times. I’m not proud. Not only that, but as of last week, I now have two year memberships to area gyms. You’re much more likely to see me out and about Glens Falls and Saratoga on my bike than in a spin class.
My favorite tips from womenshealth.com were the following:
- Get a vacation on the books ASAP. Beach season is so close, you can practically smell the sunscreen already. Most people rev up their workout routines right before taking a big trip, so wherever you’re going this summer, get your reservations nailed down as soon as you can. Not only will thinking of your trip give you that extra push you need to get through a tough workout, but it also gives you a deadline you can’t cheat.
- Leave important things in your gym locker If you accidentally-on-purpose forget to bring your hairdryer and make-up bag home after a gym sesh, you’ll be forced to go back the next day to get ready.
- Start a work-buddy system: People plan to get their sweat on after work, but then talk themselves out of it by 5 p.m. With crazy deadlines, last-minute meetings and the like, your workplace is booby-trapped with gym-bailing temptations-so you need allies to stay strong. Find a few people in the office with similar fitness goals, and make a pact to keep tabs on each other. Tell them to make sure you leave at X time so you make your workout-and vice-versa. Then follow up to keep each other accountable.
Granted, I don’t know that womenshealth is where I should be looking for advice.
A new study suggests that a woman’s purse may contain as much bacteria as the average toilet. As if I weren’t already terrified of those things. It’s of some natural human male instinct that we’re so scared of those things — and it’s not about germs. Like Steve at Carriage Traders said, “they carry their lives in those things.” It’s not something to be messed with. I’m not comfortable fetching something from a purse even when I have permission to do so! Can someone explain this to me?
Have you ever pulled something out of your purse and asked how long has this been in here? Why do I have this? What is this? We asked you what the most random item in your purse was RIGHT NOW. The Top 3 awards this morning go to:
Jane – A Spanish puppy passport
Anastasia - A spark plug extraction tool
Pam – An ice cream scooper
Nearing the end of the show I took a look at a list of the most popular arguments for mother’s and teenage daughters. Thinking about my sister, 8 years younger than I, and the torturous life she had that she couldn’t stay out late, she hated all her clothes, etc. You know, teenage girl probems.
The top five are:
- Tidiness of bedroom
- Answering back
- Relationship with siblings
- Relationships with boys
- Staying out too late
