First off, my apologies for neglecting you my dear readers. It has been an interesting few days.
To say the least, seeing Graham was overwhelming in the most wonderful way that anything can be overwhelming. I would write more about the experience, but I’m glowing happily on the inside and don’t want to let that out. It was great to see everyone both on stage and off - it put a burning ember in my heart and reignited my Graham passion. Not that it needed to be reignited, of course.
I was super inspired and worked too hard in class on Monday and Tuesday because of it - my muscles are possibly more sore and exhausted than they’ve ever been. I refuse to compensate, give in, and use the wrong muscles… so instead the right muscles have ended up giving out on me. This semester I’m pushing myself harder and harder every day. Yesterday I threw up a little in Graham. I know some physical trainers push new clients to the vomiting point - I guess you go through it and then break through to the next level. I can’t wait to see how strong I am by the end of the semester.
Today started off well. I got on the scale when I woke up this morning (I haven’t checked my weight since I got back from winter break - 136 lb.). I wasn’t expecting any significant change. Last June I weighed 154 pounds and my goal weight was 135. This morning I got on the scale to a surprising 131.4. Needless to say, I’m still in shock. I believe I was 13 (maybe 14) the last time I weighed this little. I’ve lost 22.6 lb. in 8 months, for an average loss of .7 lb per week, which is perfect!!! I really am doing it the right way - healthy weight loss is maintained at half a pound - a pound per week. I’m 5′9″, so the weight loss has got to stop at some point soon. Anyways, none of my old pants fit! My super tight short shorts that I’ve had since I was 13 are getting loose in the leg now. I think there’s only one thing to do: go shopping! Well, thrifty shopping.
Unfortunately, the day didn’t continue on a happy track. My car brakes are frozen - had to get it towed (again). Next a friend accidentally kicked me in the head in Limon causing a really bad migraine. Oh well, we all have our days… Tomorrow is my first Valentines Day ever, so hopefully I can get my car in the afternoon (if it’s ready, will have to skip pilates :( ), have a good Angels reh., and have a good first V-Day.
