|From the waist up, my body is AWESOME!|
Now, if I could get better lighting and NOT take my picture in the bathroom, imagine how great it would look...
|Look! A vein!|
|Yep. That is a big vein in my forehead.|
3. Killing the weight room.
I don't have a cool picture of this. But, I went in there Monday afternoon and killed it. It was crowded. Most of them were 20 year old boys, grunting a lot and throwing their weights down so we know how heavy they are.
There was a funny little duo. Twin girls. They had some sort of checklist (no big deal- I bring a binder with me to the gym). What was funny was they were taking their checklist and gathering a bunch of items: 12.5 pound weights (which I kind of wanted to use), 40 lb barbell, medicine ball, 5 pound weights, step... and put them all in the stretching area. So, not only were they hogging a bunch of equipment they couldn't possibly use that entire time- they were taking up all the space in the stretching area.
But the funny thing: One of them was doing these leaps from side to side, and the other one was standing on one side pushing her every time she got close. I don't know what this was for, but it was pretty entertaining. I tried to take a picture discreetly, but I just couldn't. So, I just got on with my bad self...
Anyway, the point was NOT that I laughed (inside only) at those twin girls (it was just so surreal). The point was that I am taking charge and feeling more comfortable in the weight room. I know it's an intimidating place for a lot of girls (even boys, probably). It sure was for me. I still have moments when I see a crowd and I think "Oh... scary". But I throw those thoughts away, and act like the most confident person in the world...
What are some things you've made progress on lately? Do you have weird veins too?
