April fools fun and a rant/vent
I love my job. This is what I come to work too:
See the 20?!
Poor 20 dolla dolla bill ya!
I made it all better though by freaking my boss out with this little number
That would be spinach, UVAM, banana and muscle gauge cinnamon bun protein. I got this idea from Katie over at Kit Kat Kate!
Onto my little rant/vent…
Know what I hate? People who think they know everything, or who just make statements that are completely uncalled for.
I’m going to use training for an example seeing it’s been happening recently… When people say that you always train harder with a trainer. It would have been a true statement if stated as *most people do train harder with a trainer*. Honestly it depends on your goals. For me I wouldn’t say I half ass my training sesh’s but I usually don’t go all out either, I train with a trainer to LEARN, not to prove myself to that person. I kill myself during my own training, I don’t need to prove anything to anybody other than MYSELF. It drives me crazy because I’ve been told numerous times to not lift before a training session, but yet I can do cardio? Might I ask, what the hell is the difference? Both are physical activity, both wear you out. Besides I’d rather lift before a sesh that way I can give 100% to my lifts. Oh but wait I forgot, everyone trains harder with a trainer. Nope, not I. Yeah, weight pre fatigue those muscles but if I’m training for leaning not performance that what’s that issue? I’m paying for it, I shouldn’t be constantly told that I’m stubborn. I am paying to learn new stuff to incorporate into my routine and check form, not to prove to my trainer that I’m awesome. Sorry, had to say that Seriously though, I’m sick of it.
Also, why am I told to keep up with cardio? Lifting is my cardio! Ever seen me lift when I go for my lifting workouts, no? K, shush then. Why is cardio such a big deal, hello I’m trying to gain weight here not burn up all the muscle I have. Btw, I do cardio… it’s called crossfit and boxing? I’m pretty sure that is way harder than some body combat class which is perfectly okay to do before training? Wha an hour of cardio and then training? Goodbye muscles, hello hip pain. I’ll stick to lifting thank you very much.
Don’t get me wrong here I absolutely love my trainer and I trust her so much, but lately I am just about to snap!
One last thing, why can’t people just ask “why” before saying things like they have all the facts down. All I want is “Sarah, why do you not like cardio” “why is lifting so important to you” “why do you want to gain weight”…. NOT, but you look great, you need cardio, you’re stubborn. I’m sorry but I don’t think that is a lot to ask for? Please correct me if I am wrong.
Rant/vent done! That felt AWESOME!
Favorite smoothie? (please feel free to post recipes/links!)
Lifting or cardio? Or both?
