So there is this new thing that I have been doing… It's called working out (as I have spoken of my workout aversion before, I'll pause to let that sink in). I have spent much effort over the past years coming up with excuses for why I can't/won't shouldn't work out… so much so that it has become part of my identity.
Now that I am spending time in the gym regularly (I even went on my lunch break last week… who am I?) I see that there are many flavors of gym going people… the "Breakfast Club" of working out. A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel & a recluse. And up until now, I have been the recluse.
Reasons I have used for not working out in the past:
- cute gym clothes // Yes, look good, feel good extends to sweat inducing activities too. And don't even get me started on my anxiety over getting VPLs… ugh!
- not having a clue // but seriously, how does ever other person know what those insane looking machines do?!
- a lack of grooming // I know that the other patrons probably can't see my hair pits or the way more than peach fuzz growing on my legs, but when I am lifting weights (you know, as I do now) & see that shiz it throws me off… so ewww!
I have now picked up cute gym clothes (love these sports bras), joined a club that taught me how to use those once frustrating machines, & tuck a Venus Snap razor into my bag. This little guy has all the great features that you have come to expect from a Venus razor (smooth "Embrace" blades, a pivoting head to hug your curves & water activated ribbon of moisture for shaving on the go) but in a new compact size. It even lives in its own carrying case, perfect for slipping into backpacks, purses & carry ons! So clutch right now, as I have been in hibernation mode & usually can't remember the last time I shaved.
Looks like I have
one three less excuses for avoiding the gym now!
Where do you need one less excuse for in your life?
Pick up the new Venus Snap razor next time you are at Target (we all know you aren't really going to run in for just one thing!)
