This morning after I finished my workout, I stopped by the grocery store on my way home. All stinky and sweaty I walked in store and a gentlemen unexpectedly came around the corner “excuse me” I say in my normal post workout cheerful voice.
I continued on down the main store front aisle. I noticed him about ten feet to my right and he says “are you a bodybuilder?” and I don’t know exactly what came over me when I blurted out “Well, yes I am!”, technically speaking I’m building on this body every single day. He proceeded to ask how long I’ve been working on it etc, I said a good 3-4 years. He simply said “well nice work”.
I could have gone in to the story of CrossFit and the story of being a personal trainer but in all honesty the answer I gave flew out of my mouth and so be it.
I’m not in great shape, I’m in good shape. To the outside average observer, I guess they see something different. It made my day. Reaffirmed my desire to keep moving forward, obstacle after obstacle. Goal after goal.
I have always loved the following quote:
“Just remember, there is someone out there who wishes they were where you are today.”
Today I’d like to share a new friends blog. It’s very inspirational. And a big thank you to Lifting My Spirits for taking time out of her busy schedule to talk with me.
