Starting somewhere

Tuesday, January 22, 2013


A friend posted this picture on her facebook page last night. It really got me to thinking of how many times I've started to get out to do some physical activity and been a afraid of how I look,or how people might see me, or that I may fail at what I do. For instance when I go bike riding with my kids, I have to stop and walk every time we come to a steep hill. I catch myself looking around, checking to see if anyone is watching. I have got out at the skating rink with my kids one time. All I could think about was how ridiculous I looked and how out of shape I was. I haven't been out on the skating rink since that one time. I've decided I'm not going to let fear stop me from doing anything anymore. So what if I look funny at first trying. All that matters is I gave it my best shot. Someday I'll be able to pull that hill without stopping. But I have to start somewhere.

    We are so hard on ourselves and that is something that should never happen. Just get out there and tell the world to look the other way if they don't like what they see. At least your out there trying and if we don't try how we ever know if we can. You hang in there go out and have fun either with your kids or find a friend to go out with but remember the name of game is to have FUN.

    I remember the first time I rode the stationary bike! I had just purchased it and I was determined, excited and motivated. This was the day I decided to change my life. I sat down and after my first five pedals ....I felt total shame...my knees were kicking my stomach and my whole body was "wobbling!" I got off the bike just disgusted.....then I thought to myself...only I can change this and it has to be now. I sat back down and pedaled away. After that, I found a good book to keep my mind off all of that mad thinking! Isn't it terrible how we can be our own worst enemies when we try and do something? I'm glad I got back on that bike!

    P.S. The book I read was:

    Look Great Feel Great
    Joyce Meyers

    Awesome book!
