Holy crotch sweat, Batman!
I spent a good hour at the gym this afternoon being particularly aggressive on the elliptical as A) I have some kick ass new Skechers that make my feet obscenely happy and 2) I have a few new happy songs in my iPod rotation that make me realllly dance-y on this machine. It is possible to kinda dance on the elliptical. It’s hard, but it can be done.
These are my new kicks ~ pretty darn sweet, right? Who wants to choose between green, orange, blue, pink or yellow when you can have ALL OF THE ABOVE on one shoe?! Anyway – this is not a shoe post, this is a embarrassing sweat post.
After my sweat session I sanitize my handlebars and stretch out before heading to the locker room. As I approach the sink in the bathroom I glance in the mirror to assess my matted hair and before I can even get to the hair I see “it”. The ultimate sweat stain. I don’t generally worry about my under boob sweat. Don’t care about the back sweat that soaks through my tank tops. Heck, if I’m in a shirt shirt I will even proudly flaunt my armpit sweat. But this was none of those areas. No no. This was a giant, obvious sweaty crotch outline. I usually wear my black yoga pants to the gym, but today I grabbed my grey ones as all the others are in the laundry. I will now assume, that though my sweat levels are roughly the same for this activity, the black fabric hides most of the moisture. Not so with the grey.
I gape for a second and think a few things in rapid succession:
Well, at least I was in the front row of ellipticals and treadmills so no one behind me could see this….until I stretched.
Oh crap – I was in the front row so everyone else in the entire gym could see this.
I guess I confirmed to everyone that I am indeed a girl.
Will my tank top pull low enough to cover this so I can grab the kids and get home?
I was the v-shape you might imagine, but with the addition of a vertical line in the center. TMI, I know, but good grief!
It was like this, but worse…..
This is truly the way I felt about it.
So – what do I take away from this little um….incidence? Lesson is: the grey yoga pants are for yoga ONLY. Black for everything else.
