OK, so I figured that I could update you on my MOO! status. And what better time than the height of the holiday season? I’m not sure why I have chosen to make you my emotional outlet of self- image issues. It’s easier when there’s nobody to look at. And I’m pretty sure we all have some sort of body issue, big or small. And if you don’t, well, I envy you.
Anyway, it has been... scary. I have been able to work out semi- regularly. I still feel as though I am taking up way too much space, but I did drop a few pounds. And now I am stuck. I am trying to fit in some exercise more often that before. I think it would be fun to join a gym and all that, but I can’t afford the time, sitter, or money to do so. And it is impossible to justify such expenditure when I have free access to a pool. And lap swimming is my exercise of choice. I read somewhere that swimming is 4 times the workout of running – So when I swim a half mile, it’s the physical equivalent of running 2 miles! That’s a boost in itself!
And just to clarify, I am not confused as to why I feel so large and “big- boned.” I know exactly where I need to improve to feel a little less like me. I am looking forward to continuing with the positive changes and making some new ones. Anyway, I’ll let you know how it all is going, since I’m sure you’ll be on the edge of your seat, anxiously awaiting to see how much space I really will give back to the general public.
Please feel free to share what you do, or want to do, to feel better about yourself. I’ll start. I try to work out a minimum of 3 times a week. Doesn’t always happen. I also try to eat better, and less of what I do eat. I am also trying to drink more water. I pretty much only have soda on special occasions, or when I really, really have a craving.
Well, until the time when I feel the need to tell more than you really care to know...
