Sir.. Please get out of the painters scaffolding

Today was not a run day and to be honest when I got to the gym I didn't know what to do.  So I walked....  It felt good, but I just could not help think I should be doing more. So I remembered that I get a free session with a trainer.  I asked if their was one who specialized in runners and I have an appointment at 5:45 on Monday.  He is going to help me with my off days.  That way I don't look like an idiot wandering around to the different machines...

My brother has been sick and has not been able to train, so I am hoping he will be better on Saturday.  I want to see if we can run a mile without stopping.  That will be a big deal for me because I have not been able to do that since I was in High School. 

I cannot wait for the day I can walk into a gym and not think everyone is staring at the fat guy.  I am sure they are not, but I feel that way.  I think that is why so many people my size have a real hard time taking that leap.  Even now with my determination to get fit and lose the weight, I cannot help feel I am being judged.  I can and will get fit and lose the weight! 

Oh and I forgot my belt today and my pants are a little big on me.... so this should be fun... not!

Your pants being a bit big is a good thing right? Who cares what people think, seriously, the only important thing is that you are taking care of yourself and taking that big leap to put yourself first which is what you should be doing. I am sure proud of you for sure!!

YAAAAAY!!!!! Good job Chris! Funny thing is, I had a good friend who was really fit and worked out in the gym, she was always so afraid of what people were thinking because she felt she had big arms or a big booty. Honestly, everyone feels like people are staring and thinking the worst. Keep up the good work!

I feel the same way when I go into the gym. I think why are all of these skinny people even here? Good luck!
