Good Morning!  The thought of this post makes me chuckle.  Have you ever had a conversation with someone with whom you have never actually spoken with only to find out that person has preconceived notions about you?  Better yet, have you been guilty of that yourself?  I don’t take it offensively, I think it’s enlightening that we definitely can’t judge a book by its cover.

A few situations come to mind for me.  First that my trainer Igor, basically said he thought my boyfriend would be an uptight suit and not the carefree, easy going down to earth guy that he met.  Another is a trainer at the gym that told me this week, she found me on Facebook and that she was stalking me.  I don’t believe that for a second.  I told her, anyone who is on Facebook is stalking someone else and we should all readily admit it :)  I have to say that after I digested that, I was truly flattered that she went through the trouble to find me….is that weird?  Why did she go through the trouble?  Did I live up to whatever she was looking for?  Lastly, the look of shock I recently got from a fellow gym goer that asked what I was listening to.  That’s the one that makes me laugh the most.

Hence this post.  Here’s a few things you may not have known about me
