7 Thoughts Only Athletic People Have

There are some things in life that aren't understood by all. That solicit a crazy look from some, and a knowing nod from others.

This post is all about the "stuggles" of being athletic; into working out; a gym rat; a yoga/barre/Pilates aficionado. If you're one of those things, let's band together and unite in our athletic-ness! If not, well... You can just continue thinking we're cray cray. Because we are.




7 Thoughts Only Athletic People Have

1) Why shower again? Yes, I worked out at this morning, but I'm planning on walking/running outside/cooling down with yoga later this afternoon... Why clean up to just get sweaty again? Why do people bother showering twice a day? Such a waste of time.

2) I don't think these workout clothes smell. Because I've washed them 208 times and only sweated in them 2,986 times. That's a totally legit ratio. Totally don't smell. At all. Ok, I smell. Let me spritz this with something quick...

3) Shoot, this new shirt shows sweat stains! Why did I buy heather grey again? Did I not learn my lesson from the last time I bought heather grey? I'm so gross... I hope I don't run into anyone I know, because I'm still running errands like this.

4) I barely sweat. What a lame workout! That group fitness instructor was way too easy on me and I'm upset about it. Maybe I'll even hit up another class to make up for the bad workout.

5) Is this workout outfit cute enough to go to happy hour in? I don't want to bring a change of clothes. That's too much work! Just let me towel off, spray some dry shampoo in, slap on some lipstick and meet up with my crew! Right...?

6) Aaaaaaaand, I forgot to pack a underwear. I don't have time to drive back home to get some before my first meeting. Looks like I'm going comando today! I wonder how many times I'll smirk at myself in front of my colleagues. Note to self, put these pants in the dry clean pile tonight.

7) Neons, FTW! I bet these new hot orange running shoes will look awesome with my neon purple shorts that go great with my electric blue socks and complete the look with my super-yellow tank.


Any of my fellow athletes feel me on these?!

  1. Why do I always buy heather grey tops girl.......seriously why haven't I learned my lesson yet???? I love this post! Dry shampoo for the win always! You'll love this so yesterday I went to teach my class and I don't have my car back yet.....another story anyways so I don't have my plethora of gym clothes in my trunk. So I went to teach and.......I forgot my pants. I was literally going to have to buy another pair of $100 pants and luckily my best gf who was also a bridesmaid of mine walked in "hey do you have an extra pair of pants?????" "Of course I do".....she saved my butt.....literally

  3. Great post! I totally feel ya on a lot of these. Not only have I bought gray shirts, but I've also made the mistake several times, of wearing gray pants to bikram class. I also sometimes don't shower because I know i'm going to get sweaty again later. And i always forget my panties!

  5. #1 absolutely describes my weekend attitude toward showering (workout related or not). Why bother? I have absolutely zero neon clothing. I always look at fun neon stuff (especially shoes) but I end up sticking with black. I did buy some striped yoga pants recently. Yay me! Haha! I think a really bright pair of red sneakers needs to find its way into my closet, soon.

  6. When I first read the title I thought it said "authentic people" and I did a verbal AWWWW. But this is also just as cool. Um #1 and #2 are incredibly accurate. Ain't nobody got time to shower twice a day! Jesh

I totally do the shower thing - the other day I went for a run and then yoga class, and I was like I don't want to rock up sweaty but I'm just gonna sweat again, I don't want to waste water!! and I have forgotten underwear SO many times I now keep a spare pair in my car haha

  8. Hahaha so true. The shower struggle is REAL. And the only time I really wear bright colors is when I'm in workout clothes ;) Especially my shoes! Gotta have fun running shoes.

  9. #1, 3 and 4 for life! Dry shampoo is my best friend now. And let's be honest, sometimes I just put on deodorant flip my hair over to get some body in it, and call it good.
    Why do we not live closer so we can be BFF workout buddies and baby girl can play with Henry while we do said workouts.

  10. Heather grey (what a waste) and twice a day showers- or really twice a day hair washing (no one notices if I put it in a messy bun with some baby powder, right?) haha one point, so on point.

  13. Numbers 1 & 2 are so true for me! Hilarious! I've given my workout clothes the "sniff" test many times & why waste water taking two showers?!! OMG I love your honesty!

  14. LOLOLOL! this is so true, esp #2 and 4. usually, #4 results in me not washing my workout clothes because no sweat = still clean.
