Yesterday I went to the afternoon spin class. My sister decided to come which was awesome! I have been feeling kinda weird going to the gym after gaining weight back while attending college.
I walk into the gym, no big deal…take my spin class no big deal… walk out and bam! lady at the front desk goes “wow her face is sooo red” as my sister and I pass by.
Now I obviously know I look like a rotten tomato after I workout it comes with the territory of being finnish and irish…but was that necessary, no. Being farther along in my fitness journey it didn’t bother me at all but if this was one of my first times to the gym knowing how self conscious I was when I started going I wouldn’t have gone back and been totally embarrassed.
I just don’t understand the point.
Like the whole Abercrombie thing, whats the point of making other people feel like crap. I have a 13 year old sister and that kind of stuff is so real to people of that age. Most 13 year olds are not above trying to fit in. Why make it so hard and cruel.
I’m at the point where no matter what size, shape, point in life I know what truly matters I don’t think making it harder for other people to realize this is right.
So here’s to being red faced and working out no matter what shape or size or point in our fitness journey :)
