Today I went to the gym at the church while my son had soccer practice out in their fields. I decided to do some jogging on the treadmill and then weights.
As I was jogging I saw four students from school pass by the hallway. The first was one of the sweetest little 3rd graders who always hugs me when I'm subbing. When she turned my way her face lit up like, "I know her!! She's a teacher!" I waved to her and she happily waved back.
Also a teacher and her husband walked by and they waved. I waved back to them also, while jogging my slow little jog and turning beet red in the face. :)
Was I embarassed to be seen in my capris, t-shirt and sweating like a pig while jogging SLOW??
No, as a matter of fact something in me was so happy to have the students (and other teacher) see me jogging. I think it was a happy pride of sorts. I'm not totally sure.
Yes, I'm chubby still, but I do exercise and it was kind of nice to have the students especially see me doing something good for myself.
I'm not sure if I'm getting my point across right, but it was just a nice feeling...for some reason... I guess it was one more thing that made me proud that I made the effort to fit a workout into my busy day today.
Ever have little happy moments like this that you'd like to share? We'd love to hear about it!
