An Unexpected Glimpse in the Mirror


Has this ever happened to you? You unexpectedly catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror. Because you weren’t intentionally looking, some new fact about yourself sneaks up on you. You don’t recognize something about yourself.

I had that experience yesterday in spin class. I was wearing a sleeveless technical shirt. I caught a reflection of myself in a side mirror. And there it was. Something I thought I might never see, but always hoped I would. I saw my tricep muscle.

I was so proud and stoked, this morning I woke up before my 4:05 alarm, ready to hit the gym. I hope I’ll do the same tomorrow.

All because my tricep was showing.

    Unfortunately it seems the only thoughts I have after seeing reflected glimpses of myself in mirrors/windows lately are that I need to work on some physical improvements! I’m a new member of a wellness center where I began a cardio workout program this week. Self-discipline is what I need to keep it up.
