Seriously?

This morning at the gym, about minute 37 of my workout a pregnant woman hopped onto the elliptical next to me. Not only was she hugely pregnant, and likely shouldn't have been elevating her heart rate like she was, she was also consuming a giant sugary coffee drink. This woman was huffing and puffing the moment she stepped onto the machine and started going like somebody was chasing her. So, for the remaining 8 minutes I raced her.  Because dang it, that out of shape, caffeine drinking, pregnant lady was NOT going to out run me.

I know, I'm totally mature, and not bitter at all.

Was she maybe trying to work the baby down? I did laps on my stairs at home for weeks with no results. I am loving your blog, pray for you guys constantly!

maybe she is trying to go into labor? Still, I wouldn't do that! I'm only 4.5 months pregnant and I wouldn't do that! HA. I mean, I wouldn't go to the gym!

Kalyn, yes.. absolutely possible- I'm just bitter :)

Knowing me, I probably would have straight up asked her if that was half calf. But of course I would smile and be nice about it. ;) lol

I probably won't have raced her because I'm lazy, but would have thought 'fat cow' in my head. Yup, that's how mature I am because that's what I allow myself to think every time I see a pregnant woman (even if they're smaller than me). Immature and bitter - it's a fun place to be!

Ha, Tiffany... I might have asked too, if I hadn't already heard her confess that it was not decaf.... and it was enormous. Like so big I'm pretty sure my digestive tract would be effed for DAYS!

And for the record, I was not the only one looking at her like she had two heads.
