Momma Said Knock You Out!

Friday, April 17, 2009

My new favorite exercise... Turbo Kick! My least favorite part of my new favorite exercise... it's in a room full of mirrors!!! I guess it wouldn't be so bad if I weren't the largest woman in the class. But there I am in a room full of size 6s who I constantly imagine are thinking, "What is SHE doing here? Doesn't she realize she is too fat to be here? She is going to crack the floor bouncing around like that!" I already have trouble looking at myself in the mirror... it is detrimental to the level of denial I am in regarding my size. So between the frightening reality of how big my butt really is and the imagined snickering of my classmates, it's a wonder I even make it to class... but it is so FUN!! I get to punch and kick and basically throw a fit to music!

Maybe sometime soon I'll look in one of those mirrors and think, "Not bad!" Maybe in about 20 pounds or so...

    Keep up the good work. Not only are you getting in shape Just think of the damage you can do to those size 6'rs once you've learned all the moves...... emoticon

    I believe in the 'love yourself' into shape version of reality... but maybe when you see your butt you can think "I'm kicking the fat out of that butt" and really kick it HARD.
    Tee hee.
    Love this blog. Keep on keeping on!

    I agree with the others. It doesn't matter what other people think...it matters that you're there! You are burning calories and having a blast doing it. That's fabulous! Keep it up!
    I hope you make it back to the PPP's for this round. We missed you.

    Woohoo. Glad you had fun punching and kicking to the music. Do not worry what the other people. Just keep punching and kicking and burning those calories.

    It's so easy to imagine the snide comments of others, they may be there and they may not. The important thing to remember is that it doesn't matter what they think...it matters what you think! Stick with it - you said it was fun remember that when the insecurities kick in....
