Pit Viper and a pretty big NSV...

For those of you who have followed me for a while...you will remember the infamous fainting incident which led me to the conclusion that I had an issue with Fear Of Men...
(said incident can be found HERE)
And I attended a self defense class...and no longer had an issue with fainting in public. lol.
Well, I went back today for a refresher class...
I was in a class with 8 women and 5 men. All of these women were fairly slender...(One I sized up as being thinner than me..but taller.)....
THis is where the cool part happens.

The instructor says: "Okay...to prove it doesn't matter how big or small you are...I am going to need the smallest woman in the class"......"Christina"...

So I look around for this Christina..and realize he is pointing at me.

I am the smallest woman *in his mind anyways*  in class.
Me.
Everyone laughs because it took so long for me to go to the center of the mat...thinking I was nervous.
Not knowing...It was because I was looking for the smallest woman in the class.
I have never been the smallest woman in anything.
lol.
So, If I am a pit viper....I am a small one..
small...
but deadly ;O).
To church tomorrow and then the gym.
Have a great night guys.
chris out.

It takes the self-image a while to catch up doesn't it? I would have loved to see your face as you slowly realized that it was you being called forward as the smallest one in the class. LOL.

I will never be the smallest woman, even if I were to slim down to 10% body fat (which is not going to happen!). I loved the story!

I have to tell you, I enjoyed the songs in your playlist...

That was better than finding money in your pants. I hope I didn't go on too long on your previous blog AND you got my point. Check that. I know I went on too long, but I hope you got my point. Great post!

Keep up the great work and stay focused!

Debora said...

Good for you! Isn't it funny how our own mirror never tells us important stuff like this?
Don't hurt anyone...throwing your little bit of weight around!

Oh Chris, so amazing. What a wonderful moment for you. And how smart of you to go back and experience the self-defense class as a whole different person, smaller and wiser and tougher too.
