Gym Funnies & Menu Monday... Tuesday!

As you all know, I've been on a workout craze the last several weeks & following the Tone It Up 2012 Bikini Challenge.  You can see some of my other check-ins here, here, here & here.  I realize, I'm a hot mess & all over the board with this workout regime & eating properly but, I'll be the first to admit that it's all a work in progress!

Anyways, as you can tell from Friday's post we were out quite a bit last week.  Needless to say, I saw the gym less times last week than my liver was visited by alcohol.  Whoopsie!  We used to go out all the time like that but, not so much anymore.  Call us old... I know we are.  With all that said, I didn't have such a great workout week & didn't eat the best so, I was feeling like quite the oompa loompa by weeks end.
Onward & Upward this week though!
It's true!!!

Since I've been frequenting the gym more these last couple of months, I've seen some funny things happen.
Of course I've seen the normal stuff of people in funny workout clothes, etc., etc.  However, the funniest things have happened to me.  I figure if I can't laugh at myself, who else can!?  Right!?

The first "Shayna Funny Moment" happened the first & second time I did the Seahorse move from the Under The Sea workout... let's just say, I had a difficult time keeping my balance & almost face planted more than a few times!  

The second "Shayna Funny Moment" happened just a couple of weeks ago when I was about to hop on the cardio machine.  I had just done my toning workout & was at the cardio machine stretching my calf muscles.  You know how you put your toe up on the wall or something that is elevated - that's what I was doing.  I'm stretching my right foot for a few seconds & the girl on the machine next to me looks over & says, "You gotta get on for it to work!"  Startled & at a loss for words I replied, "Oh yeah, I know.  Thanks though."  She then says, "Oh ok.  Just making sure because the first time I used these I stood there for about 10 minutes trying to figure it out!"  To which I reply, "Yeah, they can be a little tricky sometimes!"

Oh y'all, I was dying inside!  This poor girl really thought I didn't know how to use the machine!  In her defense, they are a little tricky & intimidating if you've never used one before - I've been there.  It was just too funny!

The third "Shayna Funny Moment" came just last week when I was doing the Starfish move from the She Sells Sea Shells Down by the Seashore workout.  I was on my third & final circuit & finished my left leg/right arm Starfish.  Then here comes the left arm/right leg set.  *Let me just say that my left arm is by far weaker than my right arm, always has been.  A lady had just set herself up right next to me & was truckin along.  The very first time I go up & back down... BAM my left hand slams down on the floor with an 8lb weight in it!
The lady looks at me & says, "Are you ok!?"  I busted out laughing & answered with a gigling, "Yes, I'm fine thanks.  Guess it's just been a long week".  She kindly reassured me that "it's ok, just shake it off".  I'm still laughing at myself for this one!  Please tell me you are too!

I hope these brightened your day a little & don't get too down on yourself if you have had a "Shayna" moment before!  You're not alone!

Oh, ONE more thing... Here's what's on the menu for dinner this week in our casa!
Monday - Turkey Burgers
Tuesday - Turkey Meatloaf Cupcakes
Wednesday - Chicken Parmesan - yes, again!
Thursday - Baked Tilapia
Friday - Whatever we can find on the road... we'll be traveling!

If you made it this far, congrats!  I know this was a pretty "wordy" post but, I can't quit laughing at myself so I figure I would share the wealth & let you have a chuckle at my expense too!

I'm off to do my workout!
