I know I'm still being a terrible blogger and not posting enough but I'm accepting that this is just how it is for now and I will eventually find a balance and not have to work as hard as I have been.
The scale is STILL not moving but my body is completely changing. I have no idea what's up with that other than maybe I'll wake up one day having lost 10 pounds. People have even started to notice! Swimming has started to make my shoulders look strong and my waist has made a comeback. My butt is higher and my legs are strong. My skin is dry and my highlights are faded but the positives are definitely outweighing the negatives.
Tomorrow is a huge day for me. I've decided I'm going to attempt a spin class. My choices are 6am or 5:30 pm. Not sure which one I'm going to do yet but most likely the PM version. I've always been terrified of it for a few reasons like not knowing how to adjust the bike or never being able to sit down again after but I have to conquer this silly fear. I parade around in my bathing suit at the gym so how hard can this be?!?! My best friend is visiting and she went on Sunday (she's a pro at it) and was able to report to me that it was full of all different kinds of people at all different levels and that there was nothing to be afraid of. Wish me luck. I don't think spin has ever killed anyone but I might be the first.
So there you have it folks. I'm proud to say exercise has kept me off my anxiety meds and aside from the occasional foul mood for no reason and lack of weight loss, I think I'm doing pretty well. Nothing to do except keep on keeping on. I'm hoping that once our coldest winter on record is over, I will be ready to kick it up a notch and maybe even drop some pounds.
Hope everyone is doing well. I have some catching up to do!!
