My new awesome job has me on the road A LOT. I am traveling mostly on the west coast and quickly learning the tricks and tips associated with being a road warriorette. One of my biggest challenges with my new lifestyle is keeping up with my workouts in tiny hotel gyms that usually have nothing more than a bench and a set up dumbbells up to 50 pounds. I try my best to make it work.
Occasionally, I am delighted by someone walking into these “fitness centers” and working out in – you guessed it – JEANS!

In case you were wondering, I am not dead. Life in Las Vegas is awesome and my new job is rocking my world (in the best ways) – but both have been keeping me insanely busy. I have all the pictures that you have sent of people inappropriately wearing jeans while exercising, and I promise to post them soon.
In the interim, I am sharing the picture* I took yesterday at my gym of a dude working out in jorts. He is, in fact, the very first person I have seen out here wearing denim while participating in some sort of exercise (difference #126 between Las Vegas and Pittsburgh) .
And the sign that hangs at my gym that the dude obviously didn’t read:
* Yes, that is me wearing a Steelers shirt sharing my Pittsburgh love in the desert. And, Pittsburghers, how much do you love what is hanging in the entryway of my new home?

To my fellow Gym Rat followers,
You know about BroScienceLife, right? If not, go over and check out the YouTube channel of Mike Tornabene and Gian Hunja. Mike and Gian are the comedic masterminds behind the obnoxious, douchebag Dom Mazzetti who makes gym culture hysterical. My favorites: Do you even lift?, What is Crossfit?, What type of fitness chick are you? (warning: NSFW)
Recently, BroScienceLife blog featured some JoggingJeans.com pictures in two recent posts:
The Rattiest Gym Outfits Ever (#4-5, #15-17, and #15-#25 – that is 16 of their 25 pictures!)
The blog has featured other jeans-at-the-gym photos that I am sure you will enjoy.

JoggingJeans.com has the BEST fans. Seriously. Especially runner Bethany who sent me the link to the following video. I was watching it thinking, “ok…boring, boring, what’s the big deal?” until I saw the magical thing that happens at 0:51.
I found the camera-person’s gradual shift to the left just AWESOME!

In the past, people have sent me signs from their gyms that I have categorized as “Gym Signs that Suck.” My new (#badass Las Vegas) gym doesn’t have a sign but it does have a list of rules. There is one rule in particular that sucks. See #4.
If you care, I am LOVING it here in Las Vegas. Today marks two weeks and it feels like I have lived here for 6 months.
My first thoughts to share:
- So. Much. Sun. My body hasn’t seen this much vitamin D in my entire life.
- On my first day here, I got a little sunburn drinking coffee on my porch at 7:00 IN THE MORNING!
- One day, I thought there were clouds in the sky but it was actually smoke from a house fire a mile away.
- Goodbye seasonal affective disorder! Hello life of applying sunscreen every single day!

The “+ More” = A Little About Me
Reading about Elisa’s kitchen renovation has got me reminiscing about all the work we did on our condo a few years ago. Our renovation was a MAJOR one. I’m talking demolish-and-rebuild MAJOR, every square inch. We learned one important thing during it: NEVER undergo a whole-home renovation. It sucks on so many levels.
Anyway, during the work, I was OBSESSIVE about taking before, during, during, during, during, during, during, and after photos of every little space. Here is an example, with most of the “durings” removed:
I chose this sequence because I am in love with that hand-painted panel which I found at an estate sale for super cheap. Another thing about me: I’m an estate sale, flea market, thrift store addict. Retail is for suckers.

It happened again this morning. A ridiculous number of people showed up at my gym IN JEANS. Gym friend, Sarah, and I were the oddballs in exercise clothing.
Sarah, aka Master of Stealth, is responsible for all of these pictures today.
UPDATE: Maybe Mary is right and Pittsburghers have lost their minds because of the snow. Today was the biggest snowfall day we have had all year. Right now, the view out my window:

CrossFitters = athletes that know how to rock fashion during workouts
Also, in the past, I wrote about CrossFitters in British Columbia who wore their best denim outfits to raise money for a children’s hospital there. A little taste of what you missed:
