Remind me again why I do this?

Saturday, July 19, 2014

It is 5:30 in the morning. I just finished working a 13 hour overnight shift. It has been almost 24 hours since I have slept. I am standing in line at the gym, waiting to warm up for PC Fit. Coach Phyllis starts by yelling "Run it down" and we run. About midway down she yells "seal jacks! Ready! Go!" and we start jumping up and down, flapping our arms. She continues to bark out orders.... Inch worm to the door! 10 push ups! Bear Crawl! Backwards bear crawl! On and on it goes, and we are only 10 mins into class. I look at Carolyn and say "Remind me again why I am here"?

I endure an hour of it. I do this day after day after day. There are some days that my body hurts so much, it is difficult to get out of bed. I keep at it though. Day after day and week after week, I drag myself in there at all hours of the day and sometimes twice a day to keep at it.

Victoria's Secret was having a HUGE sale, so I decided to order some things. There was a pair of sweats for super cheap. The only problem is the only sizes available were S and XS. I decided to take a chance and order the size S. I figured if they didn't fit I would just return them to the store. My package arrived today, and I nervously took them out and looked at them. Sucking in my breath, I slid them on... and guess what? They were too BIG! Instead of the S, I should have ordered the XS... Never in my life did I ever think I would wear a size S/XS and from Victoria's Secret to boot.

It was then I thought... yeah, this is EXACTLY why I do this
