I lost track of a day somewhere because yesterday was day 12, not 11. I think I didn't blog day 11. Anyway, I was hoping for a snow day today but we only got a few centimetres instead of the 15-20 that was predicted. I had an 8:30 class and then hit the gym after. Since I did most of my workouts at home this week, I was so glad to get back on the treadmill. I actually can't wait to get back on tomorrow morning too. It is great to see my progress. I started in pretty bad shape and every time I go I can go faster and faster. I am getting less concerned with my massive derriere, not that it is shrinking as of yet, but am not so self-conscious that I am much bigger than the rest of them there. Most of the people are on the university sports teams and are very fit. Oh well. The girl at the front desk is very friendly and welcoming. I think if I went to the gym regularly in my undergrad years, I would never have let this happen to my body. Those are the consequences of letting your perception of what other people think of you control your life. That is a lesson I've learned and I am determined not to do it again. I will try what I want to try despite what other people think of me and despite fear of failure. I will try because I can. I still have to do my video for the January Jumpstart challenge tonight. I'll get right at it because I am starting to get sleepy.
