Not Me! Monday

Time again for Not Me! Monday. In case you haven't been introduced to Not Me! Monday, yet, here are a few details. A few weeks ago I stumbled across MckMama who plays "Not Me! Monday." Here are the rules to playing, but in sum, you just list a lot of things you "didn't" (read: actually did) do this weekend/past week. All in the name of admitting that we all make mistakes and aren't perfect.

This past week...



I did not nearly face plant on the tread climber at the gym and in an effort to not fall knock my water bottle off its stand and soak myself in the process. I also did not ignore the stares from my fellow worker-outers. Nope, I have more coordination and grace than that.

I did not nearly punch a girl in the face for coming to the gym with starbucks coffee in hand, hair down, make-up on, and discussing how "boys keep coming up to me telling me I'm just too skinny." Nope- not me.

I did not go to bed at 8:45 one night this week because my early morning workouts had me exhausted. No, I am a young, vibrant girl who was out partying at that time!

I did not watch the entirety of four football games this weekend. Nope, I have more exciting things to do than sit around watching football.

I most certainly did not cringe and cower on Saturday night when Jerk roommate couldn't find his cell phone and proceeded to flip all of the furniture over until he found it. No, I would never let him affect me like that.

And finally, I did not put my full length mirror on more of a slant so that it makes me look skinnier!! Nope, not me!

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and as always, feel free to play along.

haha, your "not me" posts always make me laugh! You've inspired me to start the tradition too! My first Not Me! Monday post is up :)

I especially liked punching the made-up gym bunny... there was an equivalent girl like that on my train home on Saturday talking the whole time on her mobile. GRRRRRR!

Ahhh the skinny mirror!
After this big project at work, I am going back to working out in the morning. I swear. So please, hold me to it. I need motivation.

I would have done the same to the chick at the gym too. There is a limit to what I can take at a place where you are supposed to sweat!
