The car (Jennifer)
Today my husband and I took the girls to the beach for a few minutes on the way to meet my inlaws for dinner. I was in the passenger seat and after about a half hour I looked down and realized that I had room! My thighs were not overflowing the seat. My arms were not smooshed into the console. And my legs were crossed? In the car? I am not sure I have ever done that. This is just one of those simple things that really was a big deal for me. I love to come across these little "big" things that make life a little more pleasant. I had never felt like I was uncomfortable in the car or anything, but now that I have the extra room it feels good!
Today I went to the gym again. This whole gym thing is such a change for me. I have never been a gym person but it just feels different for me this time. I met with a trainer which was provided with my membership. And I think this has made all the difference. Otherwise I would be totally lost which is why I had never wanted to join before. What is the point of wandering around aimlessly not knowing how to use any of the machines. But I met with her and she told me what to do and it was just what I needed. She told me to do 30 minutes of cardio and the two ab machines every time I go in. Then I alternate between upper body and lower body. The machines used to look intimidating to me but now that I was taught to use them and at what weight I dont feel so overwhelmed. There are women of all ages, shapes and sizes there. And that makes it more comfortable too. I never feel looked down on.
Yesterday Karen and I did Zumba. It was fun and interesting to see how it differs from my normal class and teacher. I had fun and plan to do it again soon.
Well, I was thinking I hadnt posted yet today, but I did...this morning. Apparently it has been a long day!!! So on that note...goodnight :)
