several months ago, one of the pastors at our church talked about how all the movies have a montage scene where clips of a character's life over a span of time are shown, highlighting all the work they are putting into something and ending with them reaching their goal or succeeding, etc. i am not a fan of working out. i like the way i feel afterwards and the way i feel about myself when i'm doing it consistently but the actual "working out" part-not a fan. i also want change to happen overnight and i usually end up getting impatient and just quitting altogether. so today when i was running on the treadmill at the fitness center in our apartment complex, looking at my reflection in the mirror they so thoughtfully placed directly in front of the cardio machines, i thought about that sermon. i decided that i'm living my montage right now. putting in the work and eventually i'll get to the end scene where a clip of me wearing my jeans comfortably again flashes across the scene.
that's the goal anyway. well that and running a 5k i guess.
p.s. did i spell "montage" right??
