The Perks of the Gym

I've discovered one additional perk to spending so much quality time in the gym lately.  Sure, the weight loss and the toning are great, but it's also nice to spend an hour or so watching good looking men work out.  Last night a cute gentleman I see at my gym quite frequently took up a spot at the arc trainer in the row in front of my elliptical machine, so on commercial breaks during Law & Order: SVU I watched him go go go.  He kept looking back at me, so either he thinks I'm a gym stalker or he was checking me out.  When I went to leave last night he was tangled up in some strange weight machine, but  he got my eye, anyway.  Little short for my dream guy, but pretty good looking, and if we fell madly in love he wouldn't cramp my gym habit, LOL.  NOTE TO SELF:  Next time, smile at him.  Eyeing him in a way that feels coy, but subtle probably translates to looking at him blankly.

I spend more time at the gym than anywhere else aside from work, so come on...is it so unrealistic to think it would be nice to pick up a cute, fitness minded lad there?  We could toil away side by side several nights a week, bonding in our goals of getting (or staying!) in shape.  Ah, love.

I don't go to the gym in super awesome outfits.  I don't PUT ON makeup for the gym...except for lipstick.  But if you know me, you know that I don't go anywhere without lipstick or lipgloss, so this is more just a strange quirk than some gym-directed choice.  At least I don't bring the gloss INTO the gym with me anymore.  ;-)  Bottom line?  When I'm sweating away on the elliptical for an hour, I'm not at my Bluemoon best, but hey...if I ever do find gym love I'll know it's true, because it won't be based on my shimmering beauty.  :-D

  1. Yeah, there are a couple guys I like to watch when I'm at my class. Naked from the top up... One in particular I talk to on occasion, or we say 'hi' to each other. Sculpt commodore. He generally sets up in front of me, and I like to watch the way his back muscles move when lifting weights, helps to keep me going. I call him Mr Beefcakes.

  3. One of the drawbacks of going to a ladies only gym is that I have no eye candy! Oh well, it helps me focus on the workout...or at least that is what I tell myself.

    1. Ah, that's true! I figure I'm focusing on my workout when I'm with my trainer, and I'm doing the damn thing and burning the damn calories, so a few momentary distractions won't hurt. Also, sometimes I go harder because I feel extra motivation, LOL.
