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?

    Pet Peeves

    This thread was spawned form a recent incident that occurred in my kitchen this evening. I had just arrived home from a workout and was tiered and extremly hungry. I had also just bought a tub of protein.
    Since I was ordering Chinese food I figured a quick protein shake would hold me until the food arrived.
    As I proceeded to open the bucket of protein and take the scoop out I realized that it wasn't there.
    Well I had to dig around in the fricking tub with my hands trying to find the bugger.

    Now that is a pet peeve of mine. When you get protein and have to sifft around in the protein to find the damn scoop.

    Just curious........whats yours?

    people who have poor table manners. and/or wear too much perfume or cologne.

    people who don't use their turn signals.

    and men who bitch about women.

    my pet peeves...

    People who come into my store with absolutely no idea what a supplement is or they have no idea what their goals are. Basically they are looking for a product to either make then big, or make them lose fat with out having to do an ounce of work.



    Hahahaha after reading Latty's, I'm adding an inadequate digestive system to my list as well..

    And while I'm at it, hormonal things annoy me too

    so true latty, so true

    i also hate it when you're going well past speed limit, and some fooker is still tailgating you. a few days ago, it was the first day of school, and i was just driving some friends home, and i was driving well past speed limit, and he was still tailing me. so when we stopped at the light, i stook my head out the window and yelled at him. then as we went again, i pulled over for a second, letting him pass, and then we followed him home. stupid fookers

    Term you pussy. When someone tailgates you, you slow down at least 10 miles under the speed limit, pissing them off even more. Then if they decide to pass you and then stop in front of you and want to fight you, that's when you use your big bodybuilding muscles to whoop his ass.

    I dislike feminists.
    I can't stand people who don't wear deoderant.
    People who think BB magazines are the end all be all.
    People who don't put their weights away after they're finished lifting them.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    My pet peeves are....

    Rude people (ie my roomie)
    Not returning phone calls
    Cocky guys (self confidence is good, but don't be a cocky asshole)
    Frat boys
    Profs that think the world revolves around them

    People that are dependent, I'm talking about people can't do a singel thing on their own, and that arn't physically disabled

    1) Overbooking my office schedule to get somebody in quickly for what the internist calls a "suspicious" skin lesion. Come to find the mole or wart has been there for 10 years and is only cosmetically undesireable.

    2) Same patient asking me to excise the other TEN moles on their back, especially when they have about 20 on their face. Especially when they smoke and have 1/2" creases in their face.

    3) Same patient, when told I'm a busy surgeon and need the office time to take care of patients I operate on- "Oh, I thought you were a DERMATOLOGIST."

    4) Having same patient sent to me BY a DERMATOLOGIST!!! I guess they're too busy popping zits.


    I'll tell you how I REALLY feel about it sometime!!!

    mds - heh...we've got a new woman at my office who is stinky like that. I accidentally created a scene the other day as a matter of fact. *lol*

    at my job we are all very casual with each other, due to the environment, the kinda job people have and the amount of time we've spent together....anyways....apparently this chick was on my aisle and was stinking...but my across the aisle neighbor ad just come back from trail-riding....well...i tolerated it for a couple minutes, and i finally turned around and said to him -"do you have your shoes off?!" he was like u uh, and I said "what the hell is that godawful smell?! it smells like cheetoes and sweat socks - wholet's themselves smell like that?!" Iwas going off kinda loudly, and she was like right next to his cube the whole time. (mind, i didn't know for certain it was her, till they told me after she left). In any case...she hasn't been smelling half as ripe the past few days. If she does again, i intend to tell her though, because better to be honest then laugh at her behind her back.

    1. People with bad hygiene. One word for ya baby, shower!!!
    2. Parents who do not do their job. If my kids acted the way some of these kids act when I'm trying to take an x-ray of them, it would not be pretty.
    3. The way Japanese people park in the streets. Literally, on the road. Not on the side of it. That would make waaay too much sense. There's this lovely innovation, it's called a parking lot!!!
    That's it for now, but I'm sure to think up more...

    People who do 30 sets of bench (see above pet peeve)
    People who like they have been stricken with HIV telling me how to workout
    My father (don't ask)

    I'm sure i can think of some more later.
