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.

Ok, so mine was the wobbly, up for maybe 5 seconds max, still consider myself a yoga newbie version of this, but I did it! I got both of my feet off the ground at the same time!Next yoga goal: headstands!

on trying everything twice. even the things you don’t like.

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. :)
