I get to take today off, which means I’m supposed to swim at least 30 minutes.
That doesn’t sound like “off” to me, but hey, I got myself into this mess of obesity, so I have to work to get out.
I’ve been overweight since about 4th or 5th grade. I look at pictures and that’s when I start to get chubby. By 6th grade it’s pretty obvious. So that means I’ve been heavy for two thirds of my life. I don’t think it’s out of the question to try to have the last (let’s say half because who really knows) of my life being of moderate size instead of fat.
I am committed.
I even told a friend that I am doing this program last night. I almost never tell my friends about my diets. I hate looking like a failure in their eyes and feel its better to just keep it to myself.
Not this time, baby. This time I’m going to complete my 66 day challenge of training my body to like and accept exercise as part of my daily life. And to stop eating my feelings. And to stop being embarrassed to wear a swimsuit in front of my friends. And to love me just a little bit more. And to be free of this weight that holds me back. Yeah. That.
15 minutes stretching
Lets just say some form of movement that burned 328 calories. 😉
