The “+ More” = Crowded Gyms in January
Regular and consistent gym-goers complain about the surge of new people in gyms in January.
Not me. I LOVE the January crowd. New faces, resolution excitement, all the “new beginning” vibes. I am hoping that by showing these newbies an occasional smile and some encouragement, a few will stick around, become more healthy, and begin to love the gym as much as I do.

A refresher: Jeans + capri pants = japris
Jogging in japris has been made famous by my denim-jogging friend, Danny, at the Sulphur Springs 5K and highlighted in this post. Oddly, we are seeing more and more of them at the gym:
The “+ More”
The great thing about not letting many people in my “real” world know about this site is that I can talk about vaginas and not worry about my mom all being all [gasp!] and clutching her chest.
Vaginas have been a recent theme for me.
1. I went for my annual gynecologist visit and a new doctor was added to the practice (the last one).
2. I looked at one of my favorite sweaters and noticed that there is a vagina on it. See it?
It is now my absolute favorite sweater.
Any good vagina stories you want to share? Just kidding, I don’t want to hear about your vagina.

Denim is taking over my gym. I’m not sure exactly when it happened but, in the past two weeks, Sarah (who snapped this AWESOME photo of a guy sleeping) and I have been seeing people working out in them left and right.
Sarah called last Monday “jeans day” and texted me these two pictures:
Earlier in the week, I saw a guy lifting in jeans who clearly was JUST released from prison. Avoid taking pictures of a guys working out in jeans if they have face tattoos and look as if they have spent the last “8-10″ doing nothing but lifting weights for hours upon hours a day. #JustSayin
But I did see this girl on an elliptical IN JORTS:
And I have walked past this poster in the stairwell a bazillion times and never noticed that the guy in it is IN JEANS.

…not because of a great bicep and back workout but because of this guy lifting IN JEANS:
And this guy:
Thanks to my gym friend, Sarah, for snapping the second picture. To get her to forward it to me, I had to “come out” about this website to her (Hi, Sarah!). I counted and I think she is only the 10th person that I know/met in my real life that knows about what I do here. As I always do when I tell people about JoggingJeans.com, I started with “Don’t judge me.”

Kelly, 3 Zigs and a Dog blogger, sent me these pictures of the Dodgin’ in Denim team that plays in her dodgeball league. Their uniforms are VINTAGE DENIM!

The “+ More”
I have said before that I am the happiest person you know. I am also the most Type A person you know. Carefree and fly-by-the-seat-of-your pants? I’m the opposite of that girl. It is so bad that I don’t enjoy vacations. “What!?” you say. Yes, you heard me correctly. Stopping life to go somewhere else and do nothing productive is torture for me. However, I do it because I know it is good for me (and maybe a lot because my husband makes me). Yes, I just said that my husband makes me go on vacations. I actually DO know how insane these words sound to you. I do.
With that said, my vacation to St. Maarten last week was as wonderful as a vacation can be for me. Below is a picture of me having fun with a new friend on Simpson Bay beach. He was a native to the island and, I think, was babysitting himself while his mom worked at a nearby hotel.
He was fascinated with my camera and made me take about 250 action shots of him; he had some killer water moves, dives onto a raft (makes great padding for landing), jumps, flips, and spin kicks. After each one, he would run to me to see the image on my camera and laugh and laugh with this contagious laugh that can only come from an 8 year old boy. It was awesome.
