A little bit proud of myself

Thursday, November 03, 2011

So, my girlies bailed on me for Yoga last night. One has a sick grandpa and the other didn't feel like going after locking herself out of her house AND getting a flat tire. So, normally I would have just said "No way, I'm not going by myself," but we've been going for awhile now and I decided to brave it on my own! I was pleasantly surprised! I am the biggest in the class. When we do arm stuff I get embarrassed because my arms are so big. Yuck. Anyways there was a new athletic girl who was wearing those shoes that look like socks. I overheard her say that she runs alot. She was next to me, but I tried not to be intimidated. Well, guess what??!?!!?! She must not do a lot of balancing and strectching because she kept falling and couldn't do a lot of the stuff. Now, I'm not making fun of her. It just felt good to know that the time I've spent in the class has done something to my body. When I first started I couldn't do crocodile and I had to drop to my knees first. Now, I'm rocking it! Some of the moves I still need to modify but I can feel myself getting stronger each time. I was so glad that I went.

I'm struggling with logging my food. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I don't like to estimate. Tonight I'm going to play Just Dance 3 with my daughter and get a nice walk/jog done in the morning if my baby allows. I'm trying to remember that I'm changing my life and that's not going to happen overnight, but every decision that I make every day affects my outcome later. The future looks bright. :)

    Be A LOT proud of yourself! I remember having those same kind of feelings in classes constantly comparing my appearance and abilities to others, it is hard not to do. I always try to remember I have the choice to beat myself up or build myself up...I choose BUILD! Way to go! emoticon
