MMM...E and I met at the gym!

Let's Link Up for Motivate Me Monday!
Link up and tell us about anything in your life that is fitness related!
For Love of a Cupcake this is sorta fitness related!

Did you know that E and I met at the gym?!?!

Well...we did!
...and I want to tell you the story!
Here goes...

I buy a membership to 24 Hour Fitness a couple days after the new year in 2009.
Being fit was my new years resolution!

After going a few times...of course I noticed E in the gym...he's the biggest guy there lol! But I'm so quiet and shy...of course I'm not going to just go up to a hott guy and start up a convo!

A couple months go by...and we are in the ab section...

I say..."are you using this machine?"
He says..."No."

And that was it!!


Maybe a few days later...he gets on the stair steppers by me. Doesn't say one word to me! He does drop something (some kind of band for working out). Later on as we are dating...I find out he was trying to get my attention by flicking it at me!! OK...back to the story.

A week or so later...we are on the stair steppers again. He gets on the one next to me. I'm pretty sure there were others open!

Anyways...he turns a little towards me and says...
"It's hot in here today."

I'm thinking...Umm of course it's hot! We are working out in the gym haha!
But of course I talk back and we chat for a minute! YAY!

A few days go by...we are in the ab section again!
(ok...maybe I went over there just because he was over there hee hee).

We start up another convo...and I find out he is a software engineer? This big guy? Really? He's a computer dork??!! haha!!

And after a few more weeks we have a first date!! It was a little awkward since we are both shy and quiet. But we got over it...and now he says I never stop talking! lol.

But that's our story (the short version)! I only thought it was fitting to tell you on MMM since we actually met at the gym!


Now for some inspiration for the week!

It's time to start getting ready for that beach body! bikini season is around the corner! You have to start now!
