Today I read a sign at the gym, and it really cranked me up…(in a good way…)
I find this so true! The more I go to the gym, the less impressive and booming James Earl Jones sounds…(that’s the voice in my head that tells me “YOU can’t do it…) Lately, his voice has been subdued, even more than the James with the socks stuffed in his mouth……almost helium-like…suck back another balloon full James….there are changes coming in this neighbourhood, and you’re not gonna like ’em.
The second part of this post is a question….I am going to ask a few of the trainer type people on Twitter to see if they can help me. The last thing I do at the gym is go hang on this machine and it seems to de-compress my spine while I hang (sorry, no technical name for the machine…but I did take a picture)
While I like hearing and feeling my spine get more loose, a strange thing happens. I feel odd when I do this, I get a buzzing feeling in my head and I feel everything closing in on me. Now, I’ve never passed out, but I kind of imagine that this would be the feeling. My focus becomes almost pin point, and I feel like I’ve been hanging there for hours. When I put my feet back on the step area, I need to wait 20 seconds or so before I feel that I can support my own weight.
Things I’ve noticed this week….
I need a smaller bra before the 5K
I have started looking in the mirror, and I feel ok about it
I decide how my day is going to go….because I decide my reaction
I am 47 years old, and I think I just started to LOVE myself
I think this is the beginning of a new journey…..
And they say, “Goldfish have no memory”
I guess their lives are much like mine
And the little plastic castle
Is a surprise every time
And it’s hard to say, if they’re happy
But they don’t seem much to mind
