Today Randy and I went to a rock climbing gym. Boy did that kick my butt! It was hard for me mentally because I still see myself heavier not to mention with short legs. Does anyone else have this kind of issue? Its something I am having a hard time with. There is so much stuff out there that I don't think I can do because I just see myself as to big. I KNOW better but that part of me just doesn't want to give up. Its like having another personality. Telling you "What are you thinking? You cant climb, how are you going to pull your big ass up that wall? You cant wear heels you are going to break them. People are going to stare at you, why are going running:". Yes I know this is all mental and its something I will have to work through. I would say its low self esteem but I am way better then I use to be, then again maybe it is. In that case it is definitely something I need to work through because no matter how fit or smaller I get it will always be there.
My WW leader last week told us about a trip she took to California to visit some friends. She just had her first baby about a year ago and she was worried about hanging around the beach in her bathing suit. Her friends were both very fit people and they were self conscience as well. So there you have it no matter how fit you are you must learn to work through your metal issues you have with yourself.
I plan on continue the rock climbing because it was hella fun and lets face it, it burns TONS of calories. We of course forgot our camera so I have no pictures, which sucks cause I made it to the top a couple of times. Granted my instructor was telling me to stop having a fit and get to the top or he was not letting me down.
Hope everyone else is having a kick ass weekend!
