Picking myself back up...Literally...

Thursday, June 27, 2013

With all the chaos of exam time, I’d grown rather lazy with my works outs. I kept going to at least a couple classes a week, but let’s just say I wasn’t giving it my all... So the last week or so I’ve been trying to pick up the pace again, getting back to my normal routine and trying to push past just comfortably going through the motions.

Well in today’s step class, where did that get? Flat on my butt! I’m going to blame the pool of sweat I’d created underneath me, but I totally wiped-out mid class and had to deal with the teacher pausing the class and everyone staring at me as I picked myself back up. For a class where I already feel like a fat out-of-shape cow, this was not the most pleasant of experiences. I could feel all the thin young things judging me... (Yes, I know it was probably all in my head but..)

But I got back up, with nothing hurt by my pride and carried on, all be it a little tentatively. Now if only I could figure out how to stop fretting over it for the next 4-5 days...

    Be proud of yourself for getting back up and continuing. You made it to the class and made it through the class so that's what counts. Keep up the good work. Don't let the young things bother you. emoticon

    Good for you for getting back up and carrying on! It's hard not to think that everyone is judging you in those classes, but chances are they probably aren't. Everyone is there for the same purpose; to work out and to get into or keep in shape. Don't let your brain get in the way, because that's all it is. I would walk right back into that same class the next time it's offered (with an extra towel to catch my sweat) with my head held high and my sneakers laced tight :)
