So...I did it. Tonight I got past my fears and finally did my new strength training workout on my own. I'm not really sure what my hang-up was, but I was very nervous. I had that icky tummy ache you get before a test in school, a doctor's appointment, or a meeting at work. I had been putting it off for well over two weeks. The lack of power and then being out of town helped me to put it off even longer...it added another week for sure. It was truly a game day decision...as I pulled into the parking lot...I still wasn't sure if I was going to do it or not. I know part of my hang-up is always being worried that I look like a complete dunce when I do strength training. I know it is silly. No one is even watching...but it definitely stands in my way sometimes.
To help me not think so much, I decided to do something I haven't ever done before, I listened to my iPod. It really helped, especially in terms focusing. I felt really good to just push my fears aside and do it. I did work. It felt so good. I love how strength training makes me feel. I guess there is a reason that I have always been a Nike Girl. Like with anything, you have to just do it.
I am about two months away from my one-year mark at being back with my boy gym...I had been thinking about all kinds of neat rewards for myself. Originally it was buying my own personal locker at the gym, but the truth is. I don't really need one. My lucky locker #103 is always there for me when I get to the gym...so I am good. I also thought about buying myself a pair of Tory Burch flats. This is still in my head, but really, do I need another pair of flats? And then...I discovered something while hunting around the Nike website tonight...you can design your own pair of Nike Shox!! So, I think you can guess what I will be doing for my one year Gymversary...I am already dreaming up the color scheme!!
