Hmmm, I think the caption on this picture is only so true. Let me explain where this is going. The wolf is badass! Look at it, everything i think I represent—in my fantasy world!! 🙄
I love fantasy books because everyone is so talented and make their skills seem believable. You know what I am talking about; you read these stories and think “Heck yah! That is exactly how I would do it!” Well, I am guilty of this because for whatever reason I must think that I am in great shape despite hardly ever seeing the inside of a gym. Exercising your mind reading a book apparently does not count.
I decided after dropping my youngest off at nursery school that I would go for a short run. Here I am feeling good, thinking that I totally got this. Get dressed up in my running gear because I am sooo a runner, right?! Listen, almost everyone who is delusional about their fitness level has more workout clothes than they need. Anyhow, I put on my music, get the ear buds in and I am off. For 30 seconds that is, then I am like hmmm, something is up….must need to ease into this. 😳
So I slow down to a jog and by jog I mean I am going so slow that I am actually picturing the proverbial old lady moving past me with the walker that has tennis balls attached. I am moving though and is that not supposed to count?? Here is my thought on that:
So I am jogging and pondering “how is this happening to me?” Then I have reality come crashing down….I was not being honest when I think of myself. How I see me (included caption because it gave credit to person in pic, not my wording):
That is apparently fantasy me….damn my imagination! This is reality:
How does this end? I did not meet any paramedics thank God, but my “run, jog, walk” lasted 7 whole minutes. I am soooooo awesome right? lol I am laughing at myself. I am proud of my 7 minutes because it is a start and although it was embarrassing because my neighbor up the street was watching me to make sure I did not die or that he did not indeed need to call said paramedics, I am no longer delusional about my fitness level. I have a place to build from and I need to keep going from that because I know you all would just die without me and that I need to keep blogging to keep you sustained….See I just traded one delusion for another….life is good! 😃
Ever have this kind of a day?
