As a child and even as a teen I was very fit and always on the go. When my career took off I stopped most activities. Sitting behind a desk didn't help the situation. Now, realizing that I am so far out of shape I don't recognize myself in the mirror, I am trying to make up for lost time. In the recent past when I would start an exercise program, I would go out walking, riding or playing in the park with my children. I would feel sluggish, foolish even, because I was so out of shape. But this morning, I put my insecurities to the side and just got moving. Moving past my feelings of embarrassment and kept plugging along. Older women would blow right past me on the trail, but I didn't pay them any attention, I kept walking. I am out of shape but I won't let that stop me this time. Those insecurities are feelings of the past where they belong. I am strong, I am confident and I have the support from friends, family and Sparkpeople to keep me going. Don't let feelings from your past keep you from obtaining your goals to be healthy or happy.
