I'm especially relieved that my weight is down because I had a couple of higher-calorie days, and was worried. I didn't do a great job of planning Monday and Tuesday, and it showed in my calorie counts. Today is going to be a little nuts because I will be watching my nephew this afternoon and then teaching in the evening. I haven't been eating junk, but overdoing it a bit on meals.
I've noticed a blog lull -- not as many people reading and commenting. I am hoping my daily checklists aren't getting too boring. I have been trying to include other types of posts to mix things up.
I swam yesterday. Even though the pool is indoors and well-heated, I was a little scared to go swim when it was so cold outside. I was very warm when I left, and I wore my dorky hat with earflaps, so I was fine. There were two women in the pool when I first got there, but they left fairly early and I had the pool to myself.
My swim workout was different, with more distance in the warmup. I was a little intimidated and then asked myself what the big deal was. I did just fine. It's interesting how many of our limitations are all in our heads. I modified the rest of the workout to finish in 45 minutes.
