Yesterday I ran so hard , I nearly puked. But it felt so good! I have been obsessing over my weight for a little while now, but yesterday it hit me that the reason I really want to work out is so that I can be strong. I was joking with J about who can run faster and he said he would win a 100 meter dash but I would probably kick his butt in endurance. And I realized, I really want to kick his butt in endurance! So now I’m determined to be in shape before he is!
Shallow you say? I agree, but its motivating. I think people who are competitive like me need a more relative goal than” I want to look good” I need a goal that says ” I want to do xyz….better than someone.”
Wonder what that means for my marriage.
