same. I’ll talk about my food/workouts/lifts/goals whatever ALL day here, but the minute someone I actually know is around I dont want to talk about any of it.
Same. I just get afraid of like annoying people I guess. I also know that no one else I’m friends with outside of tumblr workouts out and eats like I do so its not even worth it.
My PM asked me if I wanted to get wings and beer for lunch and I was like so taken aback that I didn’t think to lie / make up some other excuse, so I just said no, I really shouldn’t. He kinda gave me a weird look so I said “it sounds awesome, but it also sounds like a lot of miles I’d have to run to make up for it”. And he was just like oook bye.
So two things here, now that I’ve had a few hours to overthink this.
One, I don’t want him to think I’m insulting his choice to go out and eat wings and drink beer at lunch.
Two, it’s not that I really think of things in terms of - eat this, workout more. I TRY not to. That just slipped out in a moment of awkward-situation-dont-know-what-to-say-word-vomit. If I had that as a planned cheat meal, I’d be so game. Or even if I wasn’t hurt this week and unable to workout, I wouldn’t feel as bad about it. It was just bad timing. I just don’t know how to explain that / he probs wouldn’t care if I did.
The WORST part about the whole thing is, I don’t want him to not invite me out again. Gelling with my team is really important to me, and having the PM on your side is pretty critical in engineering world (or really, any company that lives and dies by project schedules).
