If skipping a day at the gym makes you cranky, you keep an extra gym bag in your trunk and you're on a first name basis with the gym janitor, you'll understand what we're talking about. BlissTree found the best 10 GIFS that only us gym rats will understand.
You can go a day without coffee. Yes, contrary to the popular belief, it’s actually possible to not NEED a cup of coffee in the morning. When your body is receiving daily activity, it’s naturally energized from the dopamine that your brain produces. This good chemical can replace your need for coffee; unfortunately it still won’t help you tolerate your coworkers.
You're hungry ALL. THE. TIME. Food is the fuel we need in order to workout. If you’re burning calories constantly, it’s only natural that your appetite will increase. As long as you aren’t going overboard with fast food and ice cream; feel free to grab an extra lunch. Or two.
4:30 p.m. is not too early. “You wake up at WHAT time?” Well, how else are you going to beat the crowd at the gym, eat breakfast, and still make it to that 9:00am meeting your boss scheduled? Your body is now programmed to wake up at 6:00 a.m. on a Sunday for no apparent reason, just like your grandparents.
Days off make you feel terrible. No matter how hard you worked out the day prior, you still hate taking days off. It makes you feel… icky, doesn’t it? However, rest days can do wonders for your body so try not to beat yourself up too bad if you miss a workout.
You turn down nights on the town. It’s a Friday afternoon and all of your friends are meeting after work for drinks and appetizers. But, you know that usually turns into shots of Fireball and a rough morning. It’s difficult to maintain that lifestyle and still wake up for the gym in the morning. If you’re obsessed with working out, chances are you will be home watching Dateline on a Friday night. Because Saturday is “leg day.”
