I've lost 80 pounds to date. Join me as I keep it off, and try and take off the last 20!
On my way out of spin class tonight I was raising my arm (causing my shirt to ride up) as I was walking by the mirror. I caught sight of, and was then distracted by, the reflection of my abs in the mirror.
And, I didn’t hate what I saw. In fact, I said out loud “look at my stomach!”
Sometimes it takes a while, after you lose a bunch of weight, for your head to catch up to your body. And then sometimes you really ‘see’ what you look like. And it makes you proud.
When I first started doing indoor cycling there was an instructor whose class I did not like. I took her class once, and said never again. (To make a long story short I kind of feared her? Just a little bit.)
And for over a year after that I did not take her class.
About four months ago or so I decided to take her class again. And I LOVED it!! Complete 180 opinion, where have you been all my life, you’re now my new favorite instructor ever, loved her class!
Since that class I have eased myself into taking her classes. Once a week, once every other week or so.
Today I did her “double,” meaning that I took both classes that she taught today. And I had the time of my life.
So this is a reminder to myself that I have to try things twice if I think I don’t like them…and then after the second time I can say that I don’t like them, and never do them again. :)
