Just realized that I have a NSV as I was sitting here perusing the forums at 3FC. Surprise! Surprise!
So let me toot my own horn for a bit.
I had been hitting the boxing bags pretty hard lately. The tops of my knuckles have some scare tissue under the surface of the skin from kickboxing. They're not "boxer's knuckles" where the joints are deformed... yet... but I can feel the scar tissue move against the tops of my knuckles and rub against the bone if I type or make a fist. It is a WEIRD (and slightly painful) sensation but... kind of a goal too.
It makes me feel so wickedly badass and strong and powerful especially when I know that I throw a good right hook. I'm pretty sure I can break someone's jaw. I just realize what a big deal this is when I thought back to yesterday when I was sitting at Starbucks. This pretty girl walked in, and I couldn't help but compare myself on a purely physical level on the basis of the trinity: Beauty Brains & Brawn... assuming our smarts were matched. And event though it is immature to see things as a competition, especially things we don't have a TON of control over... I thought we were pretty matched and it kind of made me sad but then I realize that I have something she probably doesn't...
My whole life, obese, sedentary, hopeless... who would have thought it would be ME?
Callus = total NSV... and a mini-goal that I didn't know I had.
