Get over the Hump-Day- Progress Report.


LETS GET PHYSICAL…at they gym!  But wait…we have a body image confession.  Here  is what one of our followers would like to share for “Get over the Hump-Day”…

“Confession: I do not change in the locker room. I didn’t feel comfortable doing it in high school gym and I still don’t feel comfortable. I’m not the only one either: there are more than a few ladies at my gym who change in a bathroom stall or arrive dressed in the workout gear. Also, I’ve never seen anyone in my sauna without a towel around her.

I’m a little modest about getting naked in front of a bunch of strangers, but I know other women have different reasons for staying clothed. Some aren’t comfortable with their bodies, others don’t want to be judged, and some don’t feel like their locker rooms are private enough. No one wants to be caught with their pants down as the door swings wide open to the gym floor!”

What about you . . . Is part of the reason you don’t go to the gym or want to put on exercise clothes because you are too aware of flaws and imperfections???

Here’s our tip:  Until you feel comfortable, arrive with your gym clothes on.  Purchase workout gear from quality places like lululemon who specialize in making our bodies look the best they can while exercising.  Wear an oversize t-shirt with yoga pants and realize that the more you exercise, the better you will feel about your body! Don’t let being too self-aware of your flaws stop you from getting physical.  Everyone is hyper sensitive to the way our bodies look.  Our culture strives for perfectionism which creates insecurities because none of us are perfect.  Remember that and get to the gym!!
