HNT - Sweat

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

About a month ago, I decided it was time to do a few things for myself. One of those things was to become a member of my local gym. Exercise allows me to focus on my physical being while letting go of the tangle of emotions running through my head. It's a healthy alternative to some of my less than healthy coping strategies. However, I sweat - a lot! This is after a typical workout.

So, should you run into me after a workout, you might want to consider the wise words of George Carlin:

“Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things”

~ George Carlin



Good thing there is a shower *CLICK*

You look wonderful. Great pics there. Thanks for sharing.

HHNT!

Dana said...

Kat, the droplets?? Should I take that as an insult?? *giggle*

tt, well, I can think of better ways to work up a sweat, but this will work in a pinch!

Evening, joining the gym was a big step for me, and one that hasn't been well received *shrugs*

Dana said...

Ms. I, I just might get used to feeling good!

Stephanie, thank you!

Vixen, no? Not even from me?? You should know what to expect!

I have grown allergic to my own sweat, a rare condition I understand!

Loving the shower shot!

figleaf said...

I never understand when people worry about looking sweaty from working out. Glad you're not one of them, Dana. (Cute tattoo too!)

Happy HNT,

figleaf

Mike said...

Oh one moment, you have missed a bit, hold still while i wash there for you ;)

A very HHNT

Hubman said...

Oh there are some sweaty things I'd like to pet :-)

Thank god for shower (pics)!

An Artist Exposed said...

I love both pics in their own way - the shower certainly looks refreshing after the workout - you look great.. HHNT!

HHNT :-)

Richard said...

It's Good idea to go to a gym,workout and socialise abit.

Dana said...

Ms. Lilly, another one looking at the droplets *giggle*

Os, you wouldn't rather wait for petting the soapy thing?

Garbonzo, you did make a funny!

Dana said...

I Smile, leave it to Os to be the one who likes it sweaty!

Jay, and you didn't even have to spend 40 minutes on the treadmill!

13Messages, thank you!

Dana said...

Sage, a sweat allergy huh? Hmmm ...

Figleaf, I actually wear my sweat as a badge of accomplishment!

Mike, I could have used a little help with my back.

Dana said...

Hubman, another sweaty petter??

Artist, thank you! It was time to get back to fun HNT's!

Not2Shy, gotta love those "free" drugs!

Mike said...

Just your back? oh okay, there, that better ? ;) oh hang on min as i try and catch the soap suds runing down your back and between... hehe

Matt-Man said...

Yum-Oh!! Showers can be soooo dirty. I have to disagree with Carlin...nothing wrong with petting the sweaty things. Cheers!!

buffalodick said...

The shower looked good on you!

Jennybean said...

Keep it up!

I love that saying, I use it all the time!

Likin' the dirty you and the clean one to... but not so sure which is which...

HHNT!

Lu' said...

And water makes all things new again. Hmm, like a duck to water?

Anonymous said...

As much as I like naked breasts with hard nipples, I do prefer the sweaty look. Actually I prefer the whole sweaty experience. Mind if I imagine getting sweaty together?

Anonymous said...

Sweat can be so damn sexy sometimes, can't it? I love both of these pictures and thank you for sharing them!! HHNT!

Real Live Lesbian said...

I *love* your sense of humor! Although sometimes, I do like to pet the sweaty things! LOL

Love that click thru!

Jormengrund said...

You gotta love a workout, where you can release endorphins you didn't even know you had!

Oh, and the shower? That's the best kind of hot release after working up that sweat..

Well, usually..

Unless you've got someone else in the shower helping you get all sweaty while getting wet!

HHNT!

Biscuit said...

LOVE how you caught the water. I also love the first shot. It's the view I get of myself and my class members every day. A look that, to me, equates to that feeling of euphoria you get at the end of a good workout.

You're beautimous!

Bond said...

Yup I love my sweat every day...and it does allow you to let go of the tangle in your brain also...

Lapis Ruber said...

Nothing wrong with honest sweat brought on by hard work and, yes, the shower afterwards maks it all worthwhile. Thanks for letting us see both :-) Happy HNT.

Karen said...

Gym time is cathartic. I proud that you are taking some time for yourself.

Great photos!

Bina said...

Yea, I sweat a lot, too. I always wonder if people think I'm strange when I leave there and my shirt is completely soaked!

But LOVE the picture! It's cool how the water droplets look coming down on your body. Excellent picture once again. Your creativity and beauty amaze each and every week.

Karl said...

Good Morning Dana,

I'm a big fan of getting hot during a workout and getting hotter during the shower after;)

g-man said...

Nothing wrong with sweating!!! You are inspiring me to get on my bike! :)

Saucy Wildcat said...

I have GOT to learn how to do that clicky thing. Very nice. The shower makes it, of course. HHNT!

Nolens Volens said...

I am a huge fan of Carlin but...I *must* go against his wise advice because I want to sweat the petty things AND pet the sweaty things! LOL HHNT!

Pronto said...

the best part of getting sweaty,

is the cleaning afterwards,

just sayin'

hhnt !

Dana said...

Kannon7, I actually love to exercise - always have - just haven't taken the time in the past 5 years to focus on myself.

Richard, I didn't say anything about socializing!

Mike, yes - much better!

Dana said...

Matt-Man, especially if you are the one making them sweaty?

Buff, *blushes*

JennyBean, I think they might both be the "dirty" me!

Dana said...

Lu, I should have borrowed your duck!

TallGuy, let your imagination run wild!

SwingerWife, there is nothing that turns me on more than the smell and feel of a sweaty man!

Dana said...

RLL, it was time to lighten up a bit *wink*

Jormengrund, any time you can combine sweaty and wet your doing a good thing!

Biscuit, there is nothing better than walking out of the gym knowing you've pushed yourself just a bit harder than you did the last time you were there!

Dana said...

Bond, and look at how well your sweat has paid off!

Lapis, honest sweat - it's a good thing!

Karen, it was a big step for me to do this and it continues to be every time I walk out the door to go.

Dana said...

Bina, I wear it proudly when I walk out! It means I've worked hard!

Karl, hot and hotter ... hmmm ... I like that!

G-Man, ride while you can! You know that winter will be here far too soon!

Dana said...

Saucy, the clicky thing is a lot of fun, but now I want to know how to do the rollover thing!

Nolens, you mean you want your cake and you want to eat it too? *wink*

Pronto, there is nothing quite like the pounding of hot water on a tired body!

As American as Apple Pie said...

This is why I run outside. Most of the sweat dries. Course, then I'm left all salty. Love the shower photo!

Mojo said...

Dana, you can sweat on me any time.

Flyinfox_SATX said...

Lookin good! Lookin real good!

Flyinfox_SATX said...

Lookin good! Lookin real good!

Nicey said...

I love nothing more than a sweaty Laydeeeee except when she's in the shower, keep it up !!

Nicey

P. and S. said...

There's nothing like working up a good sweat and then taking that shower to ease aching muscles.

Lilly said...

LOL I have never heard that quote before, but I like it!!

Yay for you, lady, you're a better woman than me. My gym memberships have gone to major waste, sad but true.

I sweat ALOT too. Especially my face....do you? Sometimes I think I'm kinda alone in that. Sometimes doesn't take much for that...

Amorous Rocker said...

I love showers! I love how you caught the droplets so well too, sexy stuff lady.

Sweating is good for you. ;) Keep working it. I love that quote too btw, lol. :)

Happy hNT!

~Jobthingy~ said...

Turnbaby said...

I think petting the sweaty things is imperative;-)

Love the pics---both.

Anonymous said...

I sweat like crazy when I work out, too. Not sure I pull the look off quite as well as you, though! Happy HNT!

BTExpress said...

Thanks for thinking of us when you took the click thru. You look great!

Anonymous said...

Best thing about getting sweaty is getting clean. Happy late HNT.

d2b said...

The second thing I saw in that clikie impressed me much. The high shutter speed that turned the shower water to pearls!

The first thing I saw? They are nice :p

Greg and Sheryl said...

Sexy AND amusing. HHNT!

Maeve said...

Getting in shape! Good for you!
And did the shower clean every thing?
Happy belated HNT!

Rat In A Cage said...

I love the way your camera catches fluid in motion. So crisp & sharp. Even better is the background in the moving fluid shots! Yeah, baby! I really need to get to work, but looks like i have a treasure trove of HNTs to hit up this weekend. Yahoo!
