Not to rub it in…

…but I am more excited than I was on Christmas morning.  Here’s why…scroll down….farther….farther.  That beautiful batch of goodies you see on the Fitnessista is heading my way.  I still can’t believe it.  After I drooled over the picture, I read the listing of goodies Gina picked out for me — treasures!

You see, I have this slight issue with health food stores and picking out products — I get stuck on the details.  more specifically, the detail where I feel like I don’t belong in the store with the products.  Let me explain.

I only really started running over the summer and I only really started reading healthy living blogs and following a healthier lifestyle for not much longer than that.  So, in a way, I feel very much like a newbie to all of this.

It’s a similar feeling to the one I got when I went into Babies ‘R’ Us to pick up a baby shower present — I stepped into the store and immediately knew they could tell I was not one of them.  One of the gestational types.  Not being a mother and far off from the baby years (bun in the oven? please, the oven’s not even pre-heating) I felt like…an imposter.  Same with my first trip to Fleet Feet (although the staff was incredibly kind and welcoming, so I got over it quick).  You can ask my sister — I made us wear our running shoes so we didn’t look out of place.

Neurotic, I know.  But I bet deep down, you recognize this feeling I’m talking about.

This package from Gina, though, I think will open my eyes to some awesome products (and the reality check I should stop being such a nerd and just go buy some of it myself — it’s a store, I have money, they want money, should be a good fit).

But those macaroons she’s sending me, baby, you can’t put a price on those!  Actually, you can, and she’s going to when she opens her eatery, G.R.O.O.V.E. and online store! 🙂
