So lately I have been REALLY struggling to get to the gym. I’ve discovered that I like to exercise with a friend. They push you past your limit and it also makes working out a little more enjoyable. Any one noticed that? Any who. I have never ever been able to meet up with this one friend because she has been in law school and all of her classes are at night. Ew. So she decided I should try rock climbing with her. She has been indoor rock climbing for years, and it is what keeps her fit.
Let me just tell you. I have discovered new muscles on my body, including in my WRISTS. Oh my gosh it can hurt. You are using your full body to move up the wall. It isn’t just upper arm strength (which I always thought). I’m going to keep doing it because I really actually enjoy it. Its challenging, but kind of fun. I have a fear of heights but I think I’m finally at the point where I’m kind of okay hanging 20 feet off the floor and looking down. It does take some getting used to.
I got dressed this morning. For myself.
Put on eye liner. for myself.
Put on my favorite red lipstick. for myself.
Showed a bit of skin. for myself
I wanted to be beautiful. For myself.
