Mirrors at the gym
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Whoever decided that a rowful of mirrors at the gym must have been in amazing shape and like they way their body looked from every angle. Me, on the other hand, I would prefer to not see all of "this" jumping around during Zumba! In fact, my eyes stay trained on the instructor just so I don't accidentally glance towards the mirror. Last night there was a grand total of 5 of us in class so of course we are all pulled to the front. We start moving and grooving and then BAM! I see myself shaking everything for all I'm worth and I just want to run from the room. I mean really, when I can't see myself I can pretend I'm in some small body and that I look good shaking my ass. I do not want to be confronted by the reality that my ass shakes enough even when I'm barely moving. I guess I understand the concept of checking form, but isn't that what an instructor is supposed to do? I know I'm overweight and that's why I'm at the gym, in fact I give myself props for finding an exercise routine that I enjoy doing. I do not however, need to be reminded of how huge I am at every turn. That's my rant for the day....I hate mirrors at the gym.
