Question of the Week: Intimidation

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

Sometimes when I walk into the gym, I feel like I don’t belong. I feel like everyone deserves to be there except me. Sometimes I even feel that everyone there is looking at me wondering what the “fat girl” is doing at a gym. Who does she think she’s fooling?

All these thoughts were detrimental to me. Even now, I avoid the gym because of these negative thoughts.

What things have you been thinking that might be interfering with your progress?

Where have you felt intimidated? The gym? The athletic clothing store? The health food store?

What positive thoughts can you tell yourself instead of the negative ones you’ve been feeding your head with?

The Question of the Week is meant to be an Inner Workout for you. Find some time during the week and allow yourself to write the answers to the questions posted. You can write them on paper, on a word processor or here in the comments section. Whatever works for you as long as you do it.

Keep writing until you find out something about yourself that you didn’t know before. I’ve also heard that it works to keep writing until you cry, but that doesn’t really work for me. Whatever works for you. Just keep writing until it feels right.
