Embarassment at the gym

  1. This was not a good 2 hours. First, i saw someone i knew, waved, said 'hello', and promptly smacked into the water fountain.

    Got on the treadmill, and after 15 minutes of running, tripped over my own foot, fell, slid off, and crashed into an anesthesiologist i work with. He held his composure well, although you could tell he was trying his best not to laugh, but the ****-eating grin gave that away.

    Last but not least, i'm walking out of the pool, SLOWLY, and managed to slip on the floor and land flat on my butt.


    If people weren't all staring, it sure felt like it.

    Marie...isn't there a song about momma saying there'd be days like this? Sorry, but I had to giggle about the anesthesiologist even as I was cringing inside imagining it. (((Marie))) Was the dr. ugly at least?

    Everytime I've done one of those group exercise classes and the instructor says to turn left or right...I almost always turn the wrong way! And then everyone IS looking at me!

    At least you were at the gym! I rarely get embarrassed at anything I do anymore. I find a way to laugh at it. "I got my daily reminder that I'm only human." Sometimes people laugh, sometimes they don't. I don't care. They wipe their butt the same as I do mine.

    I tripped up on the stairclimber one morning. It was a Monday and the end of a long 3 day stretch on the night shift. I also set my cellphone in the area where you keep the water bottle on the treadmill and it fell out onto the belt and flew across the room.
