No instant results

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

So, after a really good workout, I feel strong, vigorous, warrior-esque.

But a part of me is bummed it didn't cut 50 pounds off me right then and then.

I mean feeling the burn is great...but it should show!

I'm really trying to live with the concept of "compound interest"---that the little bits here and there I do aren't huge themselves...but over time they snowball into....something less (of me).

In other news:

My gym is by a high school and when I got there today, there were LOTS of older teens in great shape working out. And lots of in shape older gentlemen too. I panicked...there I was in my baggy sweatpants and walmart shirt with long sleeves. But I just did it...and about 10 minutes later I noticed a man working out in dockers, a man with "my" physique, a few woman who were struggling on the treadmill.

It's funny that I didn't see the (what I consider) regular people at first. They were there. But all my insecurities had me focus on the already in shape people.

I'm glad I stayed.

    Oh so true about who we focus on with our insecurities raising their ugly heads!
Well done for getting the blinkers off and for staying with it! It will be easier next time!
