First thing-- the scale is back down today. Mine reported 182; LAWL official is 183.4. Total of 23.6 pounds GONE.
Today I was looking at the schedule for the summer dance class my daughter wants to start going to. A couple months ago I had circled "Thursday 5:30-6:30" on the class offerings. And also the 5:30-6:15 Tot & Me gymnastics for the toddler boy in our house who uses the coffee table as his gymnastic equipment.
Thursday was an open night, that's a good time from school/work standpoint, and both kids could do an activity at the same time. There's just one problem now.
For the past two Thursdays I've taken the step aerobics class at 5:30. The first class kicked my butt--it was complicated and exhausting, but I did it. Last night, it was still hard but I'm getting better, and I really liked how tired I was afterwards. Plus, the Fridays after I've had big losses. Coincidence? Could be, but who am I to mess with the scale goddess?
So the thing about this class is-- it's only one of two aerobics classes I can take. The rest of the classes are at wrong times or are weight lifting, and I want to do this Thursday class so I can keep up the variety and intensity of my workouts.
In the past, I have sacrificed for my family, putting myself last. In the past, I'd have signed up Sophie for the 5:30 Thursday class regardless of what I had going on.
Something's happening with me, that I don't want to just GIVE UP what makes me feel good.
So my daughter will probably take the Monday at 4:30 class, and my son won't take a class at all(he's only 18 months, there's lots of time). I'll have to leave the office earlier, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. :)
