I'm making strides....at the gym. Not with my weight...oh no, that has not budged. But with my confidence level. Today, my friend Joy wasn't there and I actually spoke to someone else. This may not seem like a big deal but it was a huge accomplishment for me. You have to understand that I feel incredibly out of place at the gym....like one of the unpopular kids that finds herself at a cheerleaders party because your Mom's know each other. I go...I work out...but I pretty much stick to myself if Joy isn't there.
Today, after working out, two women were discussing the Kick Boxing class. Now, I am an old TaiBo fan - I love to kick things (Remember, I have three boys!). This sounded intriguing....so finally I spoke.
"hmmmm - is the class very advanced? I mean, could a beginner keep up?"
"It's pretty hard", she replied, "but you should try it...you could always modify it.".
We continued to talk about the class until another woman joined in and convinced me to go tomorrow. She was my size so I had an immediate trust in her.
In spite of the interesting delivery of information, I am glad that I asked. I plan on doing some imaginary butt kicking tomorrow in the kick boxing class. Hopefully I will not end up on my rear. Hopefully, my new friend will feel the need to do another workout afterward so we don't bump into each other in the locker room again. I'm not thinking that this will happen since she seems to have a similar work schedule to mine and Joys. Lucky us.....
I'll let you know how it goes...Hopefully, I will come out unscathed...and will find a way to avoid gaining any more "knowledge" of my fellow gym members. I'm sure they are all nice....I just want them to be nice with clothes on! Hope you have a great day!
