April Fool's Day!

Happy April Fool's Day! I completely forgot about this until after lunch. My mom used to tell me that you can only pull a prank until noon on April 1st, no later. Has anyone heard of this before? I think she just might have made it up so we had less time to do stupid stuff around the house.
Anyway....back to working out today after a much deserved rest day! My legs felt really fresh today, and the run seemed pretty easy which is always a good thing in my book. 6.5 miles in 59:30 (I know that's basically an hour but when you are desperately trying to run faster every second counts). I also thought I must be looking good since I got mega attention from a random at the gym. But then my hubby took a picture of me afterwards, and I realized I was definitely not looking so hot. 

I promise I don't have a hunchback. I don't know why I stand like this.

Still happy because I haven't seen these pictures yet.
What do you do when you get unwanted attention from someone at the gym? Assuming, of course, that you already have a lovely male in your life like I do. I flashed the ring, I was sweating profusely, and I never said more than one word at a time in response. And that word was usually "yep" or "yeah". I'm such a charmer. Are you one of those people that can say "BACK OFF BUDDY CAN'T YOU SEE I'M RUNNING!!!!" because I'm not. I guess I have to work on that.

After working up a sweat I went to try out the new Aldi grocery store in my area. I used to shop there when I lived in Germany so I was really excited to try it out. I ate some of the new finds for lunch. Open faced PB&J (Peanut Butter on one side and jelly on the other) with a salad, strawberries, and grapes. 

I hope some of you were better prepared and had some good pranks today! What are the best ones you've heard of?

How do you respond when you get unwanted attention at the gym?

  1. Congrats on your time and the random! Seriously those moments have come so far and few between that it freaks me out unnecessarily. I was shopping in Target for hubby's anniversary gift and a guy asked me to lunch. I still wont go in that particular store solo. LOL. However, it is good to feel like "oh yeah, I still got it!"
