Giggles + Awkwardness

Seriously, I get suck a kick out of the fact that some of you giggled at my vlog yesterday. I get a little nervous because it’s 100% difficult to sit at the computer talking yourself and not feel kind of like a loser.

Cory mentioned “Maybe they’re laughing at you.”

I panicked for a moment then thought “Homeboy, who are you kidding? I’m hilarious.” (<–If you didn’t you catch the flaming sarcasm, that was it 😉 )

Many of you had the awesome advice of just taking a break from the gym when it becomes unenjoyable, so I did just that.

Instead of turning left to go to the gym, I turned right and went home. I took a nice 35 minute walk and it was just what I needed to get my mind right. It was so quiet and peaceful and I loved the change of scenery that came with being outside.

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m headed to Richmond for my sorority sister’s wedding! I’ve got some packing and breakfast eating to do before I hit the road, so I’m going to leave you with a picture that

a) hopefully repeats this weekend

b) secures my awkwardness in all of your minds.

    Hi Colleen! I just discovered your blog and saw your vlog from yesterday and I just have to say I LOVE your sense of humor! I was totally cracking up over the “my mom doesn’t really sound like a transvestite” bit…I can’t believe you kept a straight face! Lol!

    I always feel like the best way out of a workout rut is a change of scenery! I was on a big workout DVD kick for about a month but just last week, I found myself starting to dread my workouts so I switched it up a bit. One day I made up my own circuit training workout and I’ve been doing a lot of bike riding this week and loving it!

    I really liked your introduction post over at Fitblogger! I like the idea of your Totally Truthful Thursdays! Can’t wait to see more!

      Hahah thanks! I know – I was like “Um – what?!” I mean, why not “approve” it and kill ’em with kindness right? 😉
