Ok, mom confession time: I have a friend who I’ve known since high school who is basically trying to recruit me to join her local CrossFit gym (and I’m not even sure if I can call it a “gym” as it’s more like a “sweat box” from what I’ve seen. She’s really into it, as many CrossFit fanatics are, and well, it’s what she talks about non-stop whenever I see her. She posts inspirational CrossFit pics on Facebook and texts me her WOD (workout-of-the-day) almost daily. I understand her loving her workouts and everything, but man it can be tiresome hearing about her rope burns and weight-lifting achievements. Anyone with CrossFit friends will know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.
You see, while I like to work-out and take care of my overall health, I’m the type of mom friend who is not going to heavily recruit you to my spinning class, but will instead share with you my leftover cheesecake and give you chocolate whenever I see you. Because that’s the type of friend I am and because I want to give my friends calorific joy, not pain (the aftermath of it they can work on their own, LOL).
Celebrity moms Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon are totally the opposite though. From what we’re hearing, the two actresses are “diet buddies” who are helping each other out while they try to lose their baby weight. Here’s what we’re reading:
“Both of them have a serious sweet tooth,” an insider told Star Magazine. “Whenever Reese wants to reach for a chocolate bar, she calls Jen instead, and vice versa.”
So tell us Babble readers, what kind of friend are you: are you the a) gym recruiter, b) chocolate giver, or c) diet buddy. Either way you look at it, all three are winners!
