QOTW: Just do it.
“So, whatever you want to do, just do it… making a damn fool of yourself is absolutely essential.” – Gloria Steinem
I think this is the perfect quote as I continue to battle Couch to 5K and try to maintain a healthy life.
It’s okay to be out by the high school and have a gaggle of 15 year olds see my fat self, red-faced and sweaty, go puffing by the tennis courts as I try to do a Couch to 5K workout.
It’s okay to look ridiculous when I get really into Wii Sports and flail and sweat all over the place.
The world will not end if I accidentally let go of my resistance band and it smacks me in the head. The world will keep turning, and I will probably laugh so hard I almost wet myself. That’s okay. Well, as long as I don’t actually wet myself!
If I want or need to ask for something on the side or to get the freakin’ french fries sometimes, that’s okay.
So stop dithering, start doing, and don’t worry if you look like a fool on occasion. Everyone does.
