Friday: Random Conv?


Workout: 30 minute hills workout on treadmill.

I ran today and I felt so much better. Yayyyy! Plus, I have my long run scheduled for tomorrow – 7 miles. I don’t think I’ve run that long in ages. Probably the last time I was training for a half over 2 years ago. Really, where does the time go?

So yes, I’m still trying to figure out how to setup my Blog and themes for my posts. I don’t think the Bestest Week Ever ones are going that well, I keep forgetting to start my draft on Saturday and am left scrounging around for ideas on Friday. No bueno.

I didn’t really feel like doing that today, so instead, I may start a new theme: the most random conversation I’ve had during the week.

Today’s topic: mean girls.

I went to eat with my girlfriends (non-meanies) from work and had a blast. Yay for girlfriends! I asked if a co-worker was pregnant, to which my friend quickly replied “yes”. Turns out they had gone to a work event and the following conversation ensued, paraphrased of course occurred:

Friend: No thanks, I don’t really feel like dessert today.

Mean Girl: Why? Is it because you’re trying to loose weight? You know, if you’re trying to loose the weight you’re carrying around your mid-section cutting back is not the way to do it.

Friend: ???

Mean Girl: Yea, I mean I know I have weight around my waist, but that’s ok cause I’m pregnant. To loose it you have to kick up your cardio…

Friend: ???

Seriously, how would you reply to this other than WTF?


To clarify, my friend is in NO WAY overweight. Even if she was, which she is NOT, what right does a co-worker have to comment on someone’s weight like that?

I am so glad that I really don’t have to deal with many “Mean Girls”. I don’t know if my psyche would be able to handle it if I did, but I would hope that I’d at least have enough sense to defend myself when needed and ignore them the rest of the time.

Know any mean girls or stories of any of any mean girls? What’s the best way to handle: confront or ignore?

Off to rest before my long run tomorrow, I may try to make it to the group run but will go solo if I wake up too late.

Many Blessings!

Wow ... what a nice person. Except not. I wish I could say that I would tell the person to mind her own business but, more than likely, I would decide it wasn't worth my energy. We have a less than tactful receptionist at work who pointed at my belly and exclaimed that she could now tell that I was pregnant and laughed. I just walked away.

Good luck on your run tomorrow!
