What's the Point Anyways??
Ladies I'm sure that we all have those days where we don't feel good about ourselves, either our thighs are too big, our stomach isn't flat enough, or we feel like a gigantic balloon on the verge of combustion. Today I went to the gym not feeling confident at all. I did not eat that healthy over the weekend and I was just feeling sluggish and guilty. I would have rather gone home after work to watch TV all night and eat my favorite jalapeno chips, but I pushed myself to drive to the gym. Once I got to the gym I turned up the volume on my ipod and told myself that I only had to stay 45minutes. I dragged myself through my dreaded leg and chest workout while taking unnecessary long breaks in between. After finishing a set of push ups I stood up and noticed a super flamboyant man walking towards me with a smile on his face. I wasn't sure if the man was smiling at me because it was obvious that he had no interest in woman, so I turned around to see if there was someone standing behind me. To make a long story short the man came up to me and said "girlfriend, I just wanted to let you know that you have an amazing body". Moral of the story is that things aren't always as bad as you think. This compliment was exactly what I needed to kick up the speed and finish up my workout with a smile (I even stayed and extra half hour). it also taught me to not be so hard on myself and definitely not to get bent out of shape over my appearance. Life is too short to have bad days, so for the next week I'm going to try to be uber positive and not to be so hard on myself. you only have one life to live.
