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! emoticon

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! :)

    Great choice in picking the gym! Hard to look cute when you're getting sweaty but I think you feel better when you look good and you look good when you feel better so worth a little effort.

    Great job on the gym time!!

    This made me laugh coz I can relate to both...it's great that you realized you were right where you should be instead of drinking your body weight in beer lol...and it's definitely a good feeling to look into those mirrors and not jump for fright but instead smile to yourself and think 'hmm, I'm looking GOOD!' emoticon
