Because I think I could qualify.
The new Avengers movie is playing at our local movie theater this weekend and I am so excited to see it! I've always loved superhero movies, and this movie is the ULTIMATE superhero movie because it has lots of superheros, like Iron Man, Captain America, and the Hulk. Yeah, I'm a total nerd. I've learned to embrace my nerdiness, so I'm not ashamed to say that I've been anxious to see this movie ever since the previews came out several months ago!
Since being back on track with my diet and most importantly, getting back into running, I feel like I could qualify to be a superhero. I've never felt stronger and more physically fit. When I walk by a mirror, I stop and check out my butt and think, "Looking good, looking good!" And I actually have bicep muscles now, so I will often flex and I can't help but feel my arms because I HAVE MUSCLES. I've never had muscles before. My calves and my thighs are starting to firm up a lot because of the increased running I've been doing. It's an amazing feeling, and I feel so strong.
I realize that this must sound incredibly vain. But let's be honest here: how many of you out there are experiencing the same thing? You've been out of shape and overweight for years, you discover a healthy diet and exercise that you love, and suddenly, you're in the best shape of your life and you feel like you can conquer the world! You feel like you can be a superhero! Am I right? Damn straight, and all of us have earned the right to look in the mirror and think, "I'm sexy and I know it!"
I'm probably not at the point yet where I could wear a Cat Woman suit and rock it, but I'm getting there......we will meet someday, Batman, very soon........
