Thats great! I used to feel embarrassed exercising at home even! It feels great when you can put those negative thoughts away and take care of you, good job.

Fantastic! Just remember that as you are out there moving when people see you what they are thinking is "I really need more exercise", "I ought to be doing that!"

Good for you - keep it up! I had always been self conscious too and just started jogging and exercising outside and love it and it makes me want to do it more. Have a great vacation

I am always a little nervous to run outside... I don't like knowing that people can 'see' me (even though I know that they're not even looking at me) and I associate a huge mental block with running outside - that it's harder, there's inclines, what if I get thirsty, etc.

But I am going on vacation with my partner in two weeks, and we'll be doing some hikes and jogs together so the past couple months I've been trying to prepare.

Last night, I figured that running outside is the next step in that preparation - since of course we will be hiking and jogging outside! I haven't gone jogging outside in probably a year or more, I (still) smoke, and I've only been getting back into exercise for about 4 months. BUT, I put all those thoughts out of my head, and even though I was terrified, I went out jogging.

And now for the real **woo hoo**, I ran 4km in 25 minutes. This was my first jog outside in who knows how long! Wow!
