You didn't intimidate me today, buddy!

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Working out is one of my least favorite things to do. I can always come up with a gazillion reasons why sitting on the couch and vegging out sounds like a lot more fun that running on a treadmill, but I digress. It is a challenge but I am truly trying to stick to my personal goal of three days of physical activity. It has not been an easy road to travel, but I am doing it!

Part of my angst with working out is the intimidation I experience at the gym. There are these women there with the ideal body and breezing through exercises in boot camp with ease and I am in the back of the room, humped over, thinking is this the end Lord?! But today, but today, I was not intimidated! I mean I had men and women running circles around me and I SMILED! I never thought I would be able to smile as people ran circles around me, but I did. I will count this as progress and continue to try to smile each time I enter the gym and someone else is breezing through the exercises with ease. It made me happy to say to myself, YOU DIDN'T INTIMIDATE ME TODAY, BUDDY!
