Day One of the Booty Moving Movement

Monday, May 16, 2016

The dog park we take our huskies to has a walking trail around it that I've avoided like the plague, for no other reason than because I despise exercising in public. Really, I'd rather eat glass than jiggle in front of people. We're talking major ugly anxiety here. Part of my whole challenge to myself isn't just to lose the weight, but to grow as a person. I decided last night that I was going to WALK THE TRAIL (in my mind, it's spelled out in those squiggly horror film letters). Another Husky mom invited me to walk with her, and I didn't hate it! I even took my over shirt off and let my shoulders see some sun. I'm pretty proud of myself. To some, these things may be silly, but I really don't care. They're huge victories to me, and I feel like I'm starting to chip away at my social anxiety one uncomfortable move at a time!

    I totally think that it is truly wonderful achieving a goal however hard it is for you. You did it, you accomplished something you were fearful doing and you survived. How great is that!!!!! Anxiety is no laughing matter, it is an awful feeling and hard to overcome. I don't know you but I am very proud of you. Congrats on your motivation and effort.
