Normal and Proud

Image 1

I’m not cool when it comes to my workout outfits. Nope. I’m just downright normal. Almost any class I teach, you will probably catch me in tights and a tank top. Normal shoes. No hats. No jewelry. Hair in a ponytail. Not setting any trends here. It’s not sexy, but, hey, we’re working out. I’m not putting on a show. I’m not the entertainment. I’m just leading the class and the class members are actually the stars of the show. When I teach (and when I workout on my own), I want to be comfortable and feel good. I want to look cute, of course, but I don’t want to look like an idiot. I’m 47 and really don’t want to look like I’m trying to be a teenager again. I think I’ve learned well from my daughter. Whenever we’re shopping and I take something off the rack that she thinks is too youthful, she just sweetly takes it out of my hands and says, “Ummm, NO!” She doesn’t want me to look like an idiot either and I appreciate that.

All this to say, if you’re like me and you just want to look like you’re working out when you are actually working out, I’m with ya! We can be uncool and normal together. Our daughters will thank us!
