After my little break from working out, it was slightly difficult to get back in the swing of things, but I'm in this for the long haul, baby!
I swam laps today at Gold's Gym, which I enjoyed more than I thought. First of all, I was the only one in the lap pool, which was perfect for my first time there to make me feel much more comfortable. Second of all, I didn't have to worry about carrying my wet swimming suit out of there because they have this cool thing that spins all the water out of your suit for you, and so I went home with a dry swim suit.
Possibly tomorrow I will return to the water for another swim, and then continue running/walking on MWF. Yup, that's what I think. I also found a better place to go running that I want to try out. It's all asphalt, but it's about a 20 minute drive from my house. Tomorrow's a good time to try it because I'm pretty free Friday night.
Oh, and I weighed myself finally, and I've lost another 7.3 pounds. At this rate (which is effortless), I will weigh less than I've ever weighed in my adult life by Christmas. That is such a great motivation to keep it up. It's been a great week, and I'm feeling good! Maybe the week off was just the break I needed to get me excited about running again!
