    I need to get my lazy ass into the gym, but I can't motivate myself to do it. It's been so long I don't even know where to begin anymore. The Golds Gym card on my key chain is collecting dust :facepalm:

    Hey man :lo5:

    Avoiding feeling fat and dumpy is an effective motivator for me.

    Maybe I should start a before and after picture thread like GP2 did? That might help?

    i pick the treadmill that faces the women's yoga, stretching, or group exercise area. Suddenly I don't notice the time passing or the exhaustion. I never work out when there are only guys in the place.

    Nah. GP2 makes it interesting with his trolling abilities. I don't do the troll thing.

    I'd start the thread in this forum if I did do it. It's safer down here. :scared:

    so? that's why they're there.

    they work out to look and feel better. they want people to look at them; you're giving them encouragement. they put on a show for you when that happens. once a girl started doing leg lifts on the universal: i think i was on the treadmill for almost 2 hours that session. my legs ached all the next day.

    some of them only act indignant; inside its exciting.

    if they didn't want to be looked at, they would work out in burlap bags.

    Potato is right. Set alarm. Get up. Go.

    If you stop for one second to think about it, you won't go.

    Tater is right, except for the days I have to be in work at 4. The gym's not open at that hour.

    I speak for all women when I tell you that no. We don't like it. :coffee:


    And don't stare when I'm on the thigh machine either. :mad: Assholes.

    pretty much. its attention. they love it.

    growing up in Manhattan i learned very early that people watching is the number one spectator sport. everyone loves to do it, and everyone loves attention. people are putting on a show every time they go out in public.

    some people acknowledge it, and some deny it, but everyone does it.

    denial is not just a river in egypt.

    staring is crude. you have to use finesse.
