How to View the World, Part 1

You can see things from a lot of different ways. How you spin it can make a big difference.
I've recently taken on a trainer. I have several opinions about him, including he's kind of a jerk, he's hot, very fit, has a cool British accent, and he does things a little differently. and tonight, I discovered, he is also insensitive. But what is now more important to me than having a hurt feeling? Becoming a better me. He is the means to an end. He is going to help me make big changes. When the time is right, I will clue him in on his boorishness, but I can deal. I am seeing the bigger picture here, which is also nifty in my humble opinion.
Tonight, he decided to take my measurements. He did so with a length of rope. Ok, I am large, but seriously, a rope? Expletive, expletive, expletive. Maybe it was necessary, but it didn't seem right to me. I held it in, and trust me I wanted to cry, but I would not give him the satisfaction of it. I wonder sometimes, is he trying to push my buttons on purpose? I don't know. He might very well be, and oddly enough, in the right circumstance, I respond well to that.
Tonight, though, all it made me want to do is punch him. ha ha. I used that anger to
fuel my workout and I had a very strong performance. I kicked it hard. whew. I still felt like crying, but I did not and I pushed through.
The moral of the story is when I have my own gym, I will not measure people with ropes. I will know better. In the meantime, let's go have some dig deep workouts. We can do it!
