because we're not in fourth grade anymore

Recommended Posts

Greetings, fellow travelers!


I joined this site because:

a) I am a flabby desk warrior who wants to get fit

B) gyms freak me out

c) I have accepted my need for accountability


As the person who, in third grade, lost our class' baseball game because I was on third base and everyone was screaming "GO HOOOME! GO HOOOME!" and I WALKED OFF THE FIELD, because my family was so nerdy I didn't know the basics of baseball...this is a big deal. I've been picked last for every team, come in last when we had to run a mile for the President's Physical Fitness test, and had dodgeballs aimed at my head. Also won prizes for reading the most books ever over the summer.


But that was all a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away.


And now it's time to change some stuff. No one is going to get me fit besides myself. No one cares more about it than I do.


A fellow nerd and I are going to our first Zumba class tonight. We hear it will be fun. We expect to want to die as well as to have a lot of fun. Further adventures as I have them. Looking forward to the next Challenge!

Yep, your status isn't determined by how good you are at sports anymore.  Eventually your status will be because you survived long enough to be old.

I have conditions that affect my social awareness.  If I am rude, tell me what I could do better.
