Project Ramona: I Want Muscles!

I've done the gymnast judge salute more than I care to admit. Watching
the Olympics has motivated me to do more! Seeing how those athletes
have pushed their bodies to the limit makes me want muscles, MORE
MUSCLES. Working out has never been something I enjoy, but now that I'm
trying to live a healthier life, I feel guilty when I don't make an
effort to do SOMETHING everyday. Push-ups on the stairs, calf raises in
the shower, leg lifts in my bedroom, shake-weight (yes, I bought one)
while watching TV...
Frankly, when I was at my heaviest, exercise embarrassed me. It takes
just one rude man yelling a fat insult out of his car window to make you
never want to venture outside in biker shorts again. Going to a class
at the gym and not being able to keep up was never a good motivator. I
painfully remember every single time I hung out with the fit kids and
felt like a total blob.
The last time I went to the doctor I showed off my new muscles. He
said, "you had them all along, you just couldn't see them."
