Driving down the road the other day - I had this thought pop into my head (as I was taking a photo of the custom Reebok shoes I picked up). Multi-tasking at its greatest, for sure.
Being with a fellow exercise/health (weight-lifting) addict has made me realize I spend a good amount of time doing the following:
- Washing shaker cups.
- Spending time on Bodybuilding.com (and other websites) purchasing protein, pre-workout, vitamins, and supplements.
- Sending him pictures of vitamins (and shampoo) that I need him to grab from work.
- Going to the grocery store at least weekly for important items like eggs, egg whites, cheese, sausage, Quest Bars, and spinach. We buy bulk eggs and cheese, by the way.
- Buying new running/lifting shoes. For both of us - and tweeting/texting about it.
- Sweating and showering. I have started showering twice a day since I am doing two workouts a day.
- I think those dark spots on the carpet in the living room are from my sweating while doing cardio/INSANITY. Don’t tell him.
- Doing laundry quite often - the majority of our clothes being sweaty (mine) workout clothes.
- Now using the fridge calendar (that was supposed to be the family calendar) on my desk for workout planning.
- Getting up from a non-standing position and grunting and groaning because our muscles are sore from lifting that day or the day before.
- Sharing funny fitness photos with each other on Facebook and in person.
I love it, of course. :) It is great to be with someone that shares the same belief in health and fitness (pretty much). Ironically, we do not talk about it much since it is a way of life for us. Is that strange?
How about you guys? Is a healthy way of life something you have in common? If so, do you have any disagreements? If not, does it create any?
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
