Boot Camp Diaries.
That's what I should call this blog.. since it's taken over my life.
Clearly, the whole pumpkin thing wasn't a huge hit...live and learn.
So I was at boot camp today. We got paired up to work out.
I ended up with a very nice, muscular woman who likes to push herself... great. Even when I was athletic, I used to hold my breath and sit at the bottom of the pool to skip laps during swim practice.
So me and, we will call her Toni, start our workout. Today, Josh has decided that we are going "heavy". Awesome. I pick up some 10 lb weights for should press... she tells me I need to use 15. Okay. Fine.
The workout is going along fine. Toni is doing more weight than anyone else and really pushing me to do the same. She tells me how she trained someone who lost 7 lbs in a month. And how she hiked for 8 hours the day before. Then she says this:
"Would you believe it if I told you I used to weigh 195 pounds?"
I responded, "Wow." trying to end the conversation.
Assuming I want to know more (wrong), she says, "In 3 months I dropped 60 pounds. I went from a size 16 to a 2."
Again, I say, "Wow."
Then, she leans in lowers her voice and drops this little goodie:
"I was even bigger than you."
Wait. What? Did she just say she was even bigger then me?
Trying not to laugh, I smile and say, "Really?"
Then she says, "Yeah, and my husband didn't even leave me."
I turned around biting the inside of me checks to keep from cackling.
What is wrong with people?
