When I go to the gym at the wee hours of the morning, I am barely standing upright & am definitely incoherent. I put on my sweatpants & a tank top underneath a hoodie & a puffer. It’s a miracle I get to the gym actually as I’m very much not a morning person.
However, I wish I could look like the girl pictured above when I hit the gym. I think I would be more confident if I looked cooler. At the same time, I feel like I need to be in better shape to go to the gym dressed this cool. Otherwise, I might just look like a poser. I would have the gear, but not the ability to back it up.
One could argue that I’m decidedly a poser already though. Can I justify why I’m wearing a motorcycle jacket or motorcycle boots? I’m most certain I would not be able to keep a motorcycle upright. Do I need to earn the right to wear one? How about a field jacket*? I suppose it shouldn’t be any different & I should dress the way I want both in & out of the gym—whether I have the ability to do the things I’m dressed to do or not.
* I have a story for another time regarding wearing military field jackets.
