Baring it all at the gym

     I'm no prude, but is it really necessary to take off all your clothes and blow dry your hair at the gym? And is it normal to have conversations with people you've just met in your birthday suit?  Yesterday I wasn't sure it was a good idea for the middle-aged (and that's being nice) lady to put her leg up on the counter, apply lotion, and completely bend over....and did I mention that she was naked?

     I used to see movies like "Animal House" and other teen flicks and think..."why do they have women walking around naked talking to each other?  That's so stupid. Girls don't really do that."  At least not the girls I hung out with.  I mean, we've gone to the spa together but that's different...we hit the sauna or the hot tub...we do our thing and then wrap a towel around us. But since I've increased my gym time, it's become apparent that some women actually do like to chat it up buck naked.  There are the 'gym rats' who think it's their right to walk around naked because they've made the gym their home.  Or the women who want to prove they have no tan lines and are super buff.  But many times it's the women who are NOT in the best shape that choose to bare it all.  I find that so interesting...that they can be so confident with all their flab and cellulite. They don't seem to care.  Maybe it's me?

Tell me YOUR take on the subject...


Here's what I did the last couple days:
Tuesday:  30 minutes on the treadmill, weights
Wednesday:  Ran/walked 40 minutes, biked 10
Thursday: Worked out with my trainer concentrating on abs and core.  It was a tough one!

Eating has been good.  Still doing the following:

Breakfast:  Eggs or Protein shake with strawberries
Snack: Fruit
Lunch:  1/3 protein and 2/3 veggies
Snack:  Palmful of nuts or cheese stick
Dinner:  1/3 protein and 2/3 veggies  OR 1/3 starch and 2/3 protein
(sometime I do the starch/protein at lunch)
I am not combining protein and carbs in the same meal (this includes fruit with trail mix)
Lots of water-except with dinner...only 6 oz then.

It's been relatively easy and I can actually feel it working this week.  Whether or not the scale show is this week I am well aware of the fact that my body is changing.

LOL!!! I know what you mean Kelly. I once saw this lady butt naked sitting on the bench in the locker room and I thought to myself I would never ever sit on the benches or put my stuff on it without spraying disinfectant.....LOL!!! I'm serious...I carry that stuff in my purse and I use it everywhere!!!

I'm one of the full figured women who walk around the spa naked! I dont go to gyms, but if I did, I might. I figure, we're all women, who cares. I dont know if I'd put my leg up on the counter and apply lotion. but then again, I dont think my leg could reach the counter! ha!

I just look away and bring my own towel since the ones they provide in the gym are too super tiny.
