Oh what a feeling!

April 27, 2012


Today was a fun day at the gym. Fridays have been pretty uplifting lately! Its funny because at 5:30am when we all arrive its quite quiet and we start into the warmup with not much of a word. Eventually we open up and there is laughter and talking. Usually Fridays the chatter starts a little sooner than other mornings. Today I was lucky enough to not have to go to work after the gym so I was a little more relaxed than usual. I was ready to "flip" into the WOD!

I am very excited that my hip has been feeling great so working speed squats was not painful at all. I am really happy that I was able to recover this injury on my own. M has been great when it comes to pinning down the techniques that I need to improve on. I have been really stressing my form and trying to improve as much as I can. It gets harder every day to improve. I knew eventually this was going to happen.

After the gym I came home and had a nice few hours on my couch doing NOTHING. Its been a long time that I have had the time to unwind without anything on my mind. I had a few things that I wanted to get out and do, but first the ME time was needed.

The best part of the day was shopping. I had to run to Staples and get the fliers printed for the golf tournament and knew that since staples was right next to Marshalls that I was going to stop in to see what they have! I finally am not afraid of shopping... or even trying things on. Its funny I used to go shopping and try something on and when it didnt fit I would get all frustrated and annoyed... it would pretty much ruin my day. Today was the total opposite. I tried things on, they didnt fit... oh well. I am happy...  I am finally happy with my body, comfortable in my skin and if it dosent fit me, its not the end of the world.

Wow... that feels good!!
