I sat down to write my excuse for missing spin class, however, I opened Facebook and was distracted by this article.

To the fatty running on the track 

And, well it really pissed me off. 

I get it is supposed to be inspirational, but really do you have to start it with shaming the person, calling them a fatty! Really?!  This is not inspirational, reading it I am filled with rage before you even get to the statement that says you rock. By the time I get to that all I read is a condescending tone.  Maybe, its just me but if you want to provide inspiration to someone, don't start out by calling them fat.

Back, to my regularly scheduled blogging. I missed spin this morning. Miss J was just all over the place last night and my sleep was terrible. I finally got her settled and asleep in her bed and it was 5AM! Yup, the time I was schedule to wake up and go to class.

I just completed my 20 strength workout with 8lb weights. 3 rounds:
Static Squat/Row and Fly 12x
Chest Fly/Crunch 12x
Squat/Curl 12x
Lunge/Side Raise 12x

To make up the missed spin class, I plan to get on my spin bike later tonight and do intervals for 30 minutes, its not the same but at least it will keep me moving.

Edited: After I posted this I found the response from the guy on the track. I am glad I am not the only one who felt like he did.


  1. Interesting post and response to the post….I think I need to reread it and think about it a while to see how I really feel about it.

    I am trying to make PEACE with my body at 20 pounds heavier than I would like. It's maybe not much to some but, to me it sometimes feels like 200 lbs and not 20. It's weird what the scale and our heads/inner thoughts do to our body image and self worth.

  2. I'm with you. I get that the post is trying to be inspirational, but why do you have to set it up like that? I get that they are trying to go for shock value and set people up for an expectation of a mean post and then change the tone, but it's not the right way to do it. This person has obviously never felt the sting of someone hollering out mean things as they run by. Shame on them.
