I had a co-worker take me up on the Sexy Challenge for the month of May. The person who worked out the most hours in that month would win $100 cash.
I busted my butt and changed my workout routine so I wouldn’t get bored. Between my apartment gym, 24HourFitness gym, Santa’s apartment gym, dance classes, basketball, dancing, boot camp, DVD work outs, personal trainer sessions and me getting off my booty to practice martial arts outside of my regularly scheduled practice time (martial arts practice with sensei T were not allowed to be included in the contest) I had a total of 76 (or was it 78) hours clocked in! I had lost about 7lbs in the beginning and then gained it back, plus two pounds, but I was floating in my clothes! I guess I gain muscle…whoohoo!
The down fall was that I was dead tired ALL the time! Monster energy drinks became my new best friend!
When it came to the first day of June I eagerly waited to hear from my co-worker. He boasted about how he workout a lot, people were commenting how great he looked and he was losing a lot of weight, 10lbs to be exact! Not only that, he said he gave up caffeine, was watching what he ate and has tons of energy.
My thoughts behind these words as I was reading them, was “is this CM?” The one that did the Sexy Challenge with a co-worker before when clocked in 47 hours was dead tired, took at least one day off a week, ate like crazy AND was a couch potato before these two competitions? Seriously… he didn’t sound like the same person. Was he bluffing? Then… he gave me his total 90 hours!
Wow… an even number that totals 3 hours a day! Sounds fishy!!
I really doubt he did that!! I heard from a girl who visited his building that he actually looks like he gained weight, as in fat not muscle.
So I did some investigation work! Tee Hee! He told me he was taking classes at 24HourFitness, that he was going everyday at 5am for an hour and in the evening at 9 or 10 for another hour or so, in addition to in lunch run. Since I knew his birthday, I had Sensei T look up his membership clock in times. Looks like he ONLY clocked in:
May 14th @ gym 147
May 16th @ gym 158
May 17th @ gym 124
BUSTED! I confronted him on it! You should have seen his face, which by the way DOES look chubbier.
I let him go on and on about working out and then I told him that I had a bone to pick with him, I laid on the facts and then he tried to back peddle from there. He said he “did work outs outside the gym” and that they wave him through because the gym personal knows him. I came back with “headcount is important to a gym” and when I know personal they STILL check me in. Granted SOMETIMES they don’t but it is more the exception then the rule! Needless to say I DID NOT pay him the $100.
