This morning, as I fished my yoga pants from the bottom of my drawer, I couldn't help but laugh at the idea that those particular pants had been "trying not to get their hopes up" every other day I had reached in that drawer for the last 2 months! ;)
Treadmill class sort of felt like punishment for 2 months of being bad. I ran just a little over 5.5 miles and never quit.. though I felt like dying. I actually was really interested in the other women on the treadmills. OF the 10 in the class, at least 5 of them stopped repeatedly during the workout to do things like; drink their water, wipe their face, or stretch. I see those things as EXCUSES to stop and wondered how many of them had any idea what it meant to REALLY work hard. It was like a bunch of women who had NO CLUE what it is like to be OBESE. I found myself wishing so badly that the other ladies in the cardio room were on those machines. Those ladies are the ones I relate to.. the ones busting their ass at the gym, feeling like it is IMPOSSIBLE to be one of the gals on the treadmill. I wanted to scream out.. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!! But, I couldn't breath and refused to stop so I just kept on running!
