Is it safe to say I do not consider myself athletic? In both high school and college, I employed every possible strategy to avoid taking P.E. Eventually my options ran out and I discovered, in a community college class, that working the upper body and stretching accelerated the improvement chiropractic and massage were bringing about in the neck, back, and shoulder. (Some of you may remember that after a few years of posting almost daily, sometimes more than once, and reading other blogs, I had to take a big break from spending time on the computer.)
Recently I had the opportunity to return to my community college for a class with the same teacher as before. Because it was summer, I would just show up in my shorts and tank top, work out, and go home. On the rare occasion I had to go somewhere after, I would throw a dress or skirt over and go.
The problem arose when the seasons changed. This is the wardrobe challenge I have mentioned several times: I felt ridiculous wearing a wool coat, shorts, and bare legs. For various reasons, change room at the gym was not a good option. So I created a new template – which will be the topic of a separate post – and burned alot of time shopping for things I failed to find.
I know some of my friends are thinking about looking for better stuff to wear to the gym. Any suggestions?
