The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Don't know if this is a hint or not......

    got this via email:

    The Rules -- This Time By Men

    We always hear "the rules" from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note .. these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!

    1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us bitching about you leaving it down.

    1. Birthdays, Valentines, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present yet again!

    1. Sometimes we are not thinking about you. Live with it.

    1. Sunday = sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

    1. Don't cut your hair. Ever. Long hair is always more attractive than short hair. One of the big reasons guys fear getting married is that married women always cut their hair, and by then you're stuck with her.

    1 . Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

    1. Crying is blackmail.

    1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

    1. We don't remember dates. Mark birthdays and anniversaries on a calendar. Remind us frequently beforehand.

    1. Most guys own three pairs of shoes - tops. What makes you think we'd be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?

    1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

    1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

    1. A headache that last for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

    1. Check your oil! Please.

    1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

    1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

    1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us. We refuse to answer.

    1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

    1. Let us ogle. We are going to look anyway; it's genetic.

    1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

    1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

    1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions, and neither do we.

    1. The relationship is never going to be like it was the first two months we were going out. Get over it. And quit whining to your girlfriends.

    1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

    1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

    1. We are not mind readers and we never will be. Our lack of mind-reading ability is not proof of how little we care about you.

    1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

    1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

    1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really.

    1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as F1, CART vs IRL,or turbo vs supercharging.

    1. You have enough clothes.

    1. You have too many shoes.

    1. Foreign films are best left to foreigners. (Unless it's Bruce Lee or some war flick where it doesn't really matter what the hell they're saying anyway.)

    1. It is neither in your best interest or ours to take the quiz together. No, it doesn't matter which quiz.

    1. BEER is as exciting for us as handbags are for you.

    1. I'm in shape. ROUND is a shape.

    Thank you for reading this; Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight, but did you know we really don't mind that, it's like camping.

    6 months? BS, my mom's neighbor used to give hell to her husband for things he did 40 fck'n years ago! My wife still bugs me for things I did more than 5 years ago. There's no time limit, if you f***ed up they will remember, that's for sure

    I'm not againt the code, Tryska. On the contrary I totally agre, I would even go as far as suggesting not to be liable for anything I said or did 3 days ago. I'm just looking for an explanation, even tho I know there isn't one, a logical one I mean.

    an explanation of why you forget your own mistakes, and someone else remembers?

    do you not remember other people's mistakes? or goof-ups or whatever?


    it's just easier to remember other people's stuff than it is your own, i think.

    or evens tuff you didn't do, but some other woman did to them. a man will still remember it and transfer it on to you. (which imo, is truly illogical)

    Right. And the reverse also applies.

    Bump.
    Just a reminder. I had to look this back up because my girlfriend just reminded me of something I did 2 years ago.

    Think is, I had to remind her that it was something she had DREAM that I did. Damn near broke us up.
    Now in pain, only working out the walking sticks.
