I am so happy with myself right now.
If you asked me last week if I was in shape or doing well, I would have told you no. I would have told you I am not happy with my body's phyiscal fitness progress. I mean I know I work hard, I know I am physically fitter than I was over a year ago. However, it is one thing to know you are working hard and another to realize exactly what is happening.
Yesterday was the day I realized I am better than I think I am. I am fit. It was a HUGE moment for me. I RAN up 36 floors of stairs!! It wasn't until the last four floors that I felt like I was just gased. i have never ever been able to run up more than a flight or two. I would walk up slowly and after walking (at a snail's pace) 10 floors my legs would shake and be cramp up. I would be wiped.
I was so excited for myself, I was on cloud 9! I didn't have leg cramps and I didn't feel like passing out on the floor when it was all done. I was so excited, I forgot I needed gas in my car and almost didn't make it to the gas station when I finally realized what I had done.
I am not doing a good job of conveying how I felt, but it was just amazing. I am no longer allowed to say to myself "Oh I am not in shape". I am an d I rocked those fickin stairs!
