"You're Packing It Well?"

Hello Friends!

I've finally crawled my way to the computer after a long day of organizing and a little trip to the gym.

Since you all enjoyed yesterday's little comment from the guy at the hospital, I thought I'd give you another amusing quote.

Tonight as I walked into the gym I was greeted by another male gym-goer. He looked familiar. I think he may have been a guy that likes to compliment my triceps. I'm not sure. I do think this being pregnant thing is making my short term memory go with regards to recalling faces. But he was friendly... probably late 40s maybe early 50s.

But anyway, he was relaxing in a chair. And as I walked toward his direction to get into the work-out area, he smiles and says,

"You're packing it well."

I smiled back and said, "Thank you."

Then as my daughter and I head toward the water fountain she leans toward me and says, "What did he say?"

I laughed and explained "He said 'I'm packing it well' a gun or something."

Of course, I take this to be a compliment...the male version of a compliment.

I also noticed, as did my daughter, that the young boy (maybe 22) who worked there seemed very friendly to me...smiling when I walked by, and making sure to say, "Have a good night" when I left.

I spose my 33 centimeter abdomen is an unusual sight in the gym. I know I always looked a little longer if I saw a pregnant gal working out. But it is kind of fun to hear what people say.

How is everyone doing on their calorie counting?

I'm doing well. I feel great.

I'm thinking about taking up a special challenge that Dawne posted on her website about not eating any snacks for the month of September. So far today I have not eaten any snacks.

Well, I think that's about it for now. In the mean time, keep up all your hard work. We're already half way through the week.

Have a good one!

  1. I think people see a woman in your state and it makes them want to be nice! Isn't that awesome? I didn't track by writing things down today. I was dealing with some stuff that got in the way but I kept a mental note of it all day and did well!

  2. I know I look twice when I see a pregnant woman at the gym. I think it is bc I hardly ever see them. I do look at them though and think about how I wish I would of been smart enough to do that when I was pregnant.

    Great job on not eating any snacks. I am not even going to try that challenge. Not when fest season is upon
