I think everyone has days when they just don't want to go to the gym -- we're tired, we're sore, we're too busy, etc. But one of the things that has always kept me from going to the gym is the excuse of being too hairy. Okay, I'm not hirsute, I'm not a bearded lady or anything. I just happen to be Irish and German. I have pale skin and dark hair.
I know girls who shave once a week and they don't get any stubble. Even with a new razor, I get stubble the next day. It's utterly unfair!
However, I think I was being a hypocrite when I told a friend to ignore anyone giving her crap for being a big girl going to a gym -- hey you're putting in the work. I think I need to take my own advice and just not care if I haven't shaved in 2 days if that's preventing me from going to the gym. That's what long pants are for. It's also what some choice hand signals are for.
It's just some leg hair... what's the big deal?
