A couple of realizations...
Friday, April 02, 2010
I went to the gym tonight... a Friday night... at 10pm. I spent an hour and a half there - GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT Workout!
There is a bar behind my gym. When I jump rope and do squats and lunges, I can see the front door of the bar and the patio out the windows. I was thinking tonight of what a fantastic night it is (still 71 degrees here at 11:30 at night!!!) and how great it would be to be at the bar with my friends... drinking my body weight in beer and having a good time. Sounds fun... except i knew that deep down at the gym was exactly where i needed to be.
Another thing I realized tonight is that I need to put a little more effort into my appearance when I go to the gym. I'm not saying I need perfect hair and make-up, but I looked into the mirror tonight at the gym and I was looking ROUGH! I don't need to be wearing big baggy sweat pants and t-shirts, and it wouldn't hurt if my hair was not a hot frizzy mess. Maybe if I put a tiny bit of effort into it, the next time I look into the mirror I would be more focused on my form or how awesome I am doing and less concerned about what a terror I look like! :)
