Yikes!! While heading to the gym it dawned on me “I forgot my tank top!” Sometimes I can be the worst at packing my gym bag. I’ve forgotten socks, sports bras, bikini for lounging in the jacuzzi, needless to say it really irks my nerves when I forget something because somehow it’s going to change my plans. And I do not like to have my plans changed.
I had two options, go out of my way to get the tank top or just rock it. I decided I’d be ballsy enough to just go there and rock it! Not thinking much about it, I drove to the gym, walked in with my work clothes and moved towards the changing area. I opened up my cute little pink gym bag all the way from England and the reality hit me. ”Wow, I really did forget my tank top and I really am here at the gym!!” I wanted to zip my bag back up and call it a night. However I realized that I’m out of town for the weekend and so I didn’t have all the free time in the world to hit up the gym.
I did it. I put on my clothes and decided a sports bra was all it was going to be. Now let me not be silly here, I’m in pretty good shape, I have those spots I definitely would like to tone more, but overall, I’m pretty fit. Still…. the idea of walking into my gym at the busy time with nothing but a sports bra on really unnerved me. As I walked out I realized I could tuck my head down and run to the machines or I could hold my head up high and get my strut on. I did pretty good until I found myself stretching for far too long and hiding behind a post.
Finally I pushed myself to come out of hiding and to get my butt on the elliptical. I was fine, there were no repercussions, no one came and pinched me anywhere to show me where I could lose a bit more or suggest that I cut out carbs for the rest of my life. In fact, a gracious woman in the locker room gave me a very generous compliment and after the elliptical another woman extended the same gesture.
It wasn’t as bad as I felt it would be. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! I held my head up high and walked with the mentality “Yah, I’m a bad little bitch!” and assured fear today he wasn’t going to win!
What about you? How long have you been putting off getting to know that person you’ve secretly been interested in? How much longer are you going to continue to date that person until you share with them how you really feel? Are you ready to move your relationship forward, well when are you planning on sharing with your partner your thoughts? Been in a dead end relationship too long? How much longer will you continue to waste your time?
Just Go There! Face the fear, give your heart a voice and do it despite how afraid you may feel!
Yah I took a pic, posted it on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram… go big or go home baby!!
