As usual, I'm feeling nervous about my weigh-in this week. I haven't had much success so far and I'm feeling frustrated with myself for not sticking with the plan. This week I'm over my weekly points allowance again, though not as much as in some other weeks. I'm going to try to keep my food light and hope for the best. I'm also going to make sure to have a lot of water -- I had some salty food last night.
I was looking through some pictures from a couple of years ago, when I was almost at goal. I looked so much better. I need to get back there again. Last night in my swimsuit, I felt self-conscious until I got into the water.
One good thing is, I'm not in the slow lane anymore. I got moved to the second-fastest lane in the beginner practice. I had fun last night and the hour went by quickly, though I got some foot cramps while using the kickboard and my calves are a little sore today. The thing about swimming is that you get resistance in three dimensions. I'm sore all over, but I know that means I'm going to be getting stronger, so I like it. I always feel pumped up after a swim.
Today will be an easy day. I'm going to go out for a walk and listen to the new Two Fit Chicks and a Microphone podcast.
