Oh No, I Hope No One Sees the Jiggle

This isn't a statement to everyone, but for those of you that are self-conscious about this problem, I suggest you continue reading. Not all of us are in top physical condition, myself included. I'm working on it, but I'm certainly not there. So that means that we probably have a little extra jiggle in some places or others. You know it, I know it, so let's not beat around the bush.

I went through a lot of my life with more jiggle than I'd like to admit, and it's still the case to this day. I remember trying to play soccer and hockey in uniforms that were made for someone in better shape. I remember not wanting to run full out, and trying to run with my gut sucked in because I was embarrassed and didn't want people to see that jiggle. I felt like if I feel it, then they must see it and I'm embarrassed.

I have a feeling this is something that some of you may struggle with. I see a lot of people that I know can do high knees or jumping jacks marching them out in warm-ups and I have a feeling this may be part of the reason why. I’m not calling you out, and this is not addressed to anyone specifically, just a general statement for those of you that might be feeling the same way I did. I still feel it from time to time. As much as I’d like to tell you that it doesn’t still bother me, sometimes demo-ing band attached sprints when my shirt isn’t baggy and you can tell (or at least I still feel that way), I do feel self-conscious about it . So I can imagine why that would be the case for you as well.

I tell you this to also let you know: NO ONE IS JUDGING, MAKING FUN, THINKING ANYTHING BAD, OR EVEN ACTIVELY NOTICING IT. If you are here, you are surrounded by people that fully support you and your efforts. There is not one person who is looking to judge you because of a jiggle. You are here because you want to get rid of it. Not working your absolute hardest because you are worried about some jiggle is just going to impede you from getting rid of it. So don’t think bad about yourself, don’t think people are watching, judging, or haven’t been there at some point or another themselves. Do the hardest exercise you are able to do and don't be self-conscious about any of that junk because the only person judging you is you.

Make it Happen!
