Yesterday at the gym was a run day. Since my run was 4km and I had some extra time after, I did a quick chest and back workout. I was a sweaty mess after, like I always am and hit the showers after so I wouldn’t cause nausea around the office from my trenchant odourous armpits. As I was peeling off my stinky layers when it hit me. That moment when you realize that you’re a sweaty mess and you didn’t pack extra underwear.
Add in that it was 10:15am and I was at the work gym and things got a bit awkward. A lot awkward actually. What do I do? Go commando and hope my pants are comfortable or wear gross stinky gitch all the rest of the day? I briefly contemplated driving all the way home to remedy my situation but explaining to my boss that I took an extra hour of time off to go home because I forgot my underwear would only make things even more awkward.
So I did the only thing I could. I aired it all out for the day. Not gonna lie, I didn’t like it but it was my only real option. The worst part of this is that it’s not the first, nor will it be the last time I do something embarrassing at the gym.
It’s also my way of seeing who, if anyone, at work reads my blog. Mostly because those people will likely no longer be looking me in the eye after reading this.
Your Turn! What’s been your most embarrassing gym moment?
