dress code violation

Apparently there is a dress code at the Rec Center.  Who knew?  Not me!  
{Ignore the stains of my t-shirt. They didn't give me a dirty shirt, I just wiped my face on it and got make-up all over it.}

I was running on the treadmill and one of the Rec Center workers came up to me and told me I had to have sleeves to work out upstairs.  I don't think it helped that I had on the most noticeable neon yellow shirt.  He offered me a t-shirt to put on over my sleeveless shirt, and he said I could keep it.  So atleast I got a free shirt out of my dress code violation. 

It's just such a bummer that I have to work out in t-shirts.  I have having sleeves.  Plus I just bought this new work-out outfit and I would have bought the yellow shirt that had sleeves if I had known.  Grrrrr. Plus, I think a t-shirt makes me look about 10 pounds heavier.  

Oh well, I guess I'll just use this as an excuse to go buy some cute work-out outfits......with sleeves of course.

You REBEL! Haha, love it. I remember at our gym in college we had to have sleeves too. I thought it was because I went to a Catholic University, but I guess not! What a silly, silly rule!

Maybe it's because of those sweaty folks that that don't wipe down their machines :)

that is CRAZY!! And what a bummer to have to workout with sleeves all the time.
I think the rule is simply to keep other gym go-er's jealousy down from from seeing your rockin shoulders. ;)

Plano rec is the same. I violated it a time or two...that's right, I walk on the wild side. I usually would just bring a thin sweater to put on in the weight area. One time they came on the PA and told me to put on my sweater. It was pretty embarrassing.

I just HATE this rule! I too have totally been caught in this type of dress code violation. I was even given a "shirt" to wear that was a 2XL. I had to switch shirts with my husband so I could even work out! Crazy. Keep up the good work! You look amazing!
