So I thought my first blog post should be about bravery (instead of a rant, which will be sure to follow).
I love to take spin classes. Love them. And I have long dressed for comfort and for cover up...which included wearing padded cycling shorts beneath yoga pants. Covering me up? Yes. Making me much hotter than I needed to be? Yes again.
One (hot) morning this summer I was getting ready to put my yoga pants on over my shorts when I thought "What the BLEEP are you doing? It is 100 degrees at 8 a.m. and these pants are not going to make the day any cooler." So ... I just went to the gym in my cycling shorts. And you know what happened? Nothing. No one screamed or ran away or threw up. No one even noticed. Except me, because I was cooler and when I began to sweat in class I knew it was just my hard work and not too many layers of clothing.
So to everyone who feels like she can't just be proud of her hard work - I say to you - no more yoga pants. Unless you're in a yoga class in which case you'd best keep them on.
