How Judy Bloom has ruined me for life

Thoughts from the gym.

No matter how much you've paid for something-PUT THEM AWAY NOBODY WANTS TO SEE THEM.
Seriously girls, it's called a sports BRA for a reason, not a sports shirt a sports BRA.
And you're in your 50's, can we just give it a rest already??

Another random topic, any girl who is around my age, probably read a Judy Bloom book in Jr High.
Your parents probably didn't want you to, but you did it anyway. At least I did.
I felt like such a rebel reading Are You There God? It's Me Margaret.
TOTALLY know and understand why my parents didn't want me reading it too btw.

When I am at the the gym, I tend to get a little lost in my head, even with music on. (trust me when I tell you , that can be scary!) Anyway my mind wonders around and the past few times I've been working on the weight machine where you do the butterfly curls.
All I can think of is that Judy Bloom book. . . say it with me girls. . .We must, we must, we must increase our ____________.
And since that isn't a priority for me, I begin thinking maybe I shouldn't be doing these on this equipment.
But,then I think, maybe I shouldn't take my cues from a book written for prepubescent girls in 1970.

It's hard to be me sometimes.

Trust me... it doesn't increase anything. I tried.

It's so wrong that has stuck with me ALL these years later!

LOL!!! Actually I never read them. But you got a chuckle out of me anyway. Just keep curling. It will probably decrease if anything.

I'm telling you, it's an adventure every time I go.
There was lots more from last night, but I didn't think it was quite fit to print :)

Oh, and that's the only thing I remember from that book!
