Lucky me got called to go into jury duty today. I had the summons all week and they pick the last day of the week. It was my first time ever getting summoned so I had no idea what to expect going in today. I had to report at 8:45am was welcomed by a line down the entire block waiting to get in through the security check. Luckily it was quick and I was inside with a few minutes to spare.

I have appointments next week so I was nervous I’d get called in. Luckily the judged liked my excuse and excused from a trial that would have been two weeks long. Pheww. Crisis averted.

Good news is I met two of my goals this week – I woke up and did an early morning run and I did two strength trainings this week. Woo hoo! On that note I’m going to start my weekend and share some of my favorite pinterest finds this week. I really am obsessed with pinterest. Do they have a support group for that yet? I think I need it.

You should try out this bad boy I did yesterday at the gym. Total body workout that made me a sweaty mess. I started out with a 30 minute elliptical warm up and finished it out with some stretching and a few ab exercises.

I like to be honest and ‘keep it real’ in my life so lets talk sweat. Yes, you read that right – sweat. You know that liquid substance that seems to drip and congregate on all your favorite work out gear. I sweat when I work out and I’m not afraid to admit it. Do I feel gross? Not usually. Sweating is the body’s way of regulating temperature. It’s a healthy and necessary bodily function. Plus, if you exercise regularly you might sweat easier and more aggressively than people who live a more sedentary life.

You’re probably asking why is this crazy lady bringing up sweat out of the blue. I over heard a conversation in the locker room of the gym when I was grabbing my stuff the other day. Two girls were like “OMG did you see that girls shirt covered in sweat. So gross. She was so sweaty she had to use a towel to wipe it from her face. It’s so sick.”

I couldn’t help over hear because lets face it they were practically yelling their business to everyone in there. The conversation bugged me because I know the woman they were talking about. Yeah she was sweaty but that lady was working her butt off. She ran up a storm then got down with her bad self on the elliptical and then moved to some weights. She put nearly everyone else in the gym that day to shame with her workout. I was impressed not disgusted by her sweating because girl was doing work!

When I first started going to the gym I was terrified if I had any sweat on me. Now I wear it as a badge of honor. I sweat because I worked my butt off and I’m 100% OK with that. I wipe down equipment and use a towel and expect others would do the same. So to all you sweaters out there. Sweat it out!

Besides sweat I had a great weekend that involved some unsuccessful shopping and Bay to Breakers craziness. It was another nice weekend to put under my belt.
