Masks in the gym?!??

Admit it, are you really wearing them the whole time? ๐Ÿค”

If you ever used the stair master in your gym, you know that thing gives you a birds eye view of 90% of the other patrons . You see everything.

From nose pickers to selfie takers.

Itโ€™s all out in the open.

So of course, Iโ€™m sweating myself into puddle and watching how many people are wearing masks, wiping off equipment and touching their faces in between sets…

Not judging, just watching and thinking.

Distraction is the key to getting through cardio ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

Right now, despite the constant rise and fall of COVID numbers across the country, masks are not required to be worn during physical strenuous activity.

If you already canโ€™t breath while doing 45 minutes on the stair master itโ€™s pretty obvious you wonโ€™t be able to breath with a mask on, right?

The requirement (that Iโ€™ve seen in the places Iโ€™ve been recently) is you must wear the mask when entering and walking around. But during the time youโ€™re confined to one machine, it doesnโ€™t need to be on your face.

So… are you going to the gym? Are you wearing a mask ?

And when is someone going to invent some chewing gum that helps with all the acne break outs due to wearing these masks for so long???

My current trick (or at least what Iโ€™m rolling with for now ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ)…

  • Wear a Washable mask
  • On cardio equipment, slide that baby down a bit! Right now equipment is spaced out to every other unit, so I feel fine letting my nose breath ๐Ÿ˜‚
  • Donโ€™t touch your face!!!
  • Wear a jacket, use the sleeve to open your water bottle ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ
  • Keep antibacterial wipes (found at Walgreens) in your gym arsenal – wipe your your hands, wipe your face down when you get in your car and remove that nasty mask
  • Keep your distance. Some people are trying to keep space between them and other patrons at all times, but… some still donโ€™t care and will never learn personal boundaries. Take control of the situation.
  • Take it outside! When all else fails, take it outside. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is the bomb! Get on YouTube, find you some free workouts and kill it.

Not much to say…

Long time no post ๐Ÿ˜Š lol

I’ve been super MIA lately! I can’t seem to think of anything worth posting or rambling about … 

So here’s a picture of Bella ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Baby girl will be a year old next Wednesday! I’m so excited!  And surprised at how quick the time has flown by. 

She’s been doing SOO much better in the health department, from what I can tell. Going in tomorrow for a check up and vaccines (fingers crossed no more medications will be needed), Currently she’s on nothing but whole food supplements and omega 3s.  ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ And they do seem to be making a difference with her. 

We’re still learning how to jog properly, without tripping up mom lol and occasionally she finds a tennis shoe she prefers over her bone ๐Ÿ˜‘ but for the most part she’s a doll ๐Ÿ˜Š

From our run this morning – she wanted those baby geese so bad ๐Ÿ™ˆ  I think we should lay off the squeaker toys for a while lol.
