I just made a long comment onto Monday’s check-in post, so read that, too.
Happy Wednesday, all! This quote can be applied to a lot of things, but here I want to apply it to fitness. A sweet lady that I adore is afraid to go to a yoga class (lives in a diff state than me) because she’s out of shape and has never been to a yoga class and doesn’t want to be embarrassed, but she REALLY wants to go. Another sweet girl I love says she doesn’t want to go to a yoga studio until she’s lost more weight. Million of the same stories with other folks and other fitness activities. I also have equally awesome stories of friends I know who have challenged their own limitations and have gotten their amazing selves out there to embark on a new adventure: large cyclists, balance-challenged yogis, & I-can-only-jog-half-a-block runners.
Have any of you experienced this or seen this happen with a friend? Please share what you/they did, reacted, felt, etc. Would love to hear the story!
What are your fitness dreams? Is there a sport or activity you’ve always wanted to try but have been too embarrassed or self-conscious to attempt?
Stop putting limitations on yourself, who cares what you look like or if you feel silly doing what you want to do, just get out there and do it. Don’t rob yourself of the experience. Perhaps you’ll LOVE it! Most of the obstacles in our lives are put there by ourselves. Challenge your excuses. Be brave. Be courageous. Be loving and compassionate towards yourself. This is how you were designed to be. Love to you all!
