The Compliment That I'll NEVER Forget!!!
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Ok, since I've lost 66 lbs I've received a few compliments but the one I received last night I will never forget.
I have two boys that play football so during practice I go to my bootcamp sessions. If I don't have bootcamp, I'm always doing something on the field. Whether it's walking, jogging up and down the bleachers, tricep dips, ab work...whatever!!! Well, a parent last night pulled me to the side and here's how the conversation went:
Parent: "Excuse me. If you don't mind me asking, what do you do for a living?"
Me: (looking confused) "Uuuumm, I work for ______"
Parent: "Oh wow!!! I always see you working out and going at it hard. I thought you were either a personal trainer or training to be in the Olympics or something"
Me: (from looking confused to REALLY happy - and shocked) "Really??? Thank you!!! No, I'm not training for anything. I just work out ALL the time. Just trying to stay healthy"
Parent: "Wow. That's awesome. Keep up the great work. I want to be like you when I grow up" (we both laughed)
Me, a personal trainer???? Training to be in the Olympics???? OMG!! I couldn't stop smiling. As a matter of fact, I'm smiling again as I get ready to post my blog LOL
