I went to the gym after work but I was set to go at lunchtime but it didn't work out. I have gone to the gym in the morning, lunch and after work and I prefer lunch time. I feel the lunch people are really going for the exercise and not for chatting and wasting time. When I went after work I felt that the 'beautiful' people were there standing around flexing (I judged!), looking amazing and I felt a little intimidated to be honest. I was bloated, greys were showing in my roots, no makeup and over all not good looking. As I was driving home I decided to go back and workout during lunch but later on I thought why not stick to after work. Why cave into something that makes me uncomfortable? If I want to stretch myself I have to deal with being uncomfortable. I recognized that 'uncomfortable' energy from the time I was modelling and how everyone were so beautiful and we were all comparing ourselves to each other. While doing some internal check in and some thinking I was able to turn around my negative thoughts and use it as a fire to get back in shape. I am familiar with competitive looks, comparing myself and not feeling good enough but I will use this energy to get better and not shy away from it. I will use this energy which will light a fire under my ass :D and use it for my benefit. #chooseoutsidemycomfortzone
