Just the Bare Facts

It's a good thing no one pants'd me yesterday morning.  They would have had the surprise of their lives. 

Trying to maintain that weight loss from our summer holiday, yesterday's morning work out entailed 35 minutes on the treadmill (3.5 mph and 3% incline), 10 minutes on the rowing machine, 20 minutes practicing ballet turns and jumps, 15 minutes of upper-body weight training, and 20 minutes of stretching.  My workout clothes were drenched afterwards.  Rather than just leave wearing sweaty clothes, I took a quick shower at the gym.

The thought of putting back on those sweaty clothes made my skin crawl.  But I hadn't come prepared for a shower and change of clothes. 

I hope no one saw what I did.  I can't believe I'm telling you this.

Before exercising, I had peeled off an outer layer of sweatpants, tee-shirt, and sweatshirt and left them in the locker.  Not having anything else to put on, I quickly stepped into my dry sweat pant and pulled the tee and sweatshirt over my head.  Commando style.  No undies.  No bra.  Zip.  Nada.  Nothing.

And no one (until now) was any the wiser.


  1. But gosh, isn't America the Land of the Free? LOL, I know darn well that "freedom" felt great, and I'll bet you do it again, on the hush of course. Ever been skinny dipping? It is wonderful with a capital W. Yes, it's also the Home of the Brave :D Long live America!

  2. I have had to do the same a few times and I feel so weird when I do. Just not used to the feel of commando. I'm fine with it..just it feels different and so it calls your atention to the fact your struttin' with nuthin'.

  3. Ooops. attention. Not the typo. Sowwy.

  4. Aha - I wonder how many perfectly respectable people one sees are hiding just such subterfuges from time to time. Like eating something I dropped on the floor, or skipping washing my hands after peeing when no one is there and I am in a hurry, I have had some make-do undergirding in my day. I am so awed by your ambitious workout, I have no thought left to criticize your mode of dress.

  5. I'd have to be careful with that. With every step I'd take it would look like "the girls" were two wrestlers fightin' under a sheet. Gotta tie those babies down.
