No Clothes, No Gym
My days of cubicle lunches are numbered!
Tuna salad (tuna, guacamole, onions) in a w.w. tortilla, roasted broccoli form last night’s dinna, apple, and a luna bar. I also have packed some trail mix. Yesterday my appetite was on high gear and I ran out of desk food. Don’t want that to happen again!
Eggs yesterday, tuna today…I bet my coworkers are just counting down the days until I leave
So this morning as I was leaving the gym, I was reminded of an article I read yesterday…
No Clothes, No Gym
I read an article on MSNBC yesterday saying that one of the main reasons women avoid the gym is to avoid the naked issue in the locker room. You know, go to the gym straight from work, change in the locker room, do your workout.
I know that it’s kinda awkward and not the definition of a good time to get undressed in the gym locker room, but I never thought of it as a reason not to go to the gym at all.
Currently, I work out in the morning, and I have for the last couple years, so I don’t have to worry about it at all. I come dressed in gym clothes and then go home to get ready.
It’s been a few years, so my recollection of feeling may be a little rusty, but for a brief time, my work schedule forced me to go to the gym straight after work. I had to change in the locker room, and although I didn’t get completely nude, I didn’t feel too weird about dropping down to my skivvies. I just kinda hid in a corner and tried to be modest. Besides, there were private restrooms if anyone really felt uncomfortable.
And since we’re on a taboo topic anyway, let’s just cross that line a little further, because I think any reason to avoid the gym could be negated by the results from this study that says those “feel good endorphins” aren’t the only kind of pleasure you can get from your workout. Um, yeah…
On that note, it’s time to get ready and head out!
How do you feel about nakedness in the locker room?
