It's Okay To Huff & Puff

Saturday, September 07, 2013



I'll be the first person to admit that I am extremely out of shape. I've always been in some time of sport since high school, and so even when I was bigger, I still was in much better shape than I am now. It's to the point where I get out of breath when climbing up two or three flights of stairs.

Coming from an athletic background, it's embarrassing that I let myself go so much. So I used to be very self conscious about situations wherein it would be apparent exactly how out of shape I am. That included taking the elevator, escalator, etc... The problem with doing that is obvious. Still, because I am constantly surrounded by people who are better shape than me, I try to "fit in" and not be the outcast.

As I was heading up the stairs to class yesterday, it dawned on me that being out of breath is a good thing! It means that I am pushing myself beyond my comfort level and that I am slowly but surely increasing my cardiovascular strength and becoming more active.

So bring on the stairs!
