Last night I had swim lesson #2, and it was fun. Not as exciting as the first lesson, since obviously I can’t be amazing every time, but it was good. I spent the entire time practicing floating face down and kicking without using my arms, and attempting to stay kicking/floating while picking my head up to take a breath. It didn’t really work that well, but I didn’t drown and I never needed help, so that’s fabulous!
After the lesson, I came home and worked on slide shows and an RFP that my company had going out today, and finally passed out around 1:30. Woke up at 8 and went back to work on the RFP, then started another slide show, then took a brief pause to go get my hair cut, using these two photos as inspiration:
My hair ended up being really cute. I think I’d like to go a shade darker, so might pick up some hair dye when I run by the pharmacy later on tonight.
After getting my hair done, I came home and ate some toast, since that’s all I have left in my cupboard at the moment (got to go grocery shopping tonight, too, I guess), and then worked on a concept for a news segment my boss is appearing in in January. Since we might have to purchase props to use on the segment, I wanted to get a good idea of what they might be, and get them ordered now instead of getting caught in the holiday season, when a lot of wholesale interior design vendors shut down.
After lunch (I know, bad timing), I took my measurements again. They’re basically the same, except for this time I tried to actually stand up straight and tall when measuring (not sure why I didn’t do this before), so you’ll see that my waist and belly measurements went down pretty drastically. Either way, it’s still pretty obvious that my waist and belly pooch are much smaller than they have been, and my jeans are fitting really great for the first time in months. It’s also obvious, unfortunately, that I’m genetically predisposed to be pear shaped, since my hips and thighs aren’t cutting me any slack here. That’s OK, though. I know that my butt is my best asset (pun intended), and my thighs are actually pretty thick because of muscle, not fat. Sure, I could stand to lose a little jiggle on the backs of my thighs, but my legs are still pretty.
This weekend is going to be good. My boyfriend gets home from his business trip tomorrow, which will be the first time we’ve seen each other in a few weeks. We don’t have a whole lot planned, but I’m hoping to go to this art show/music experience that a friend of mine helped put together, this musical village where every little house is a musical instrument, and they all work together to make a concert. It’s called The Musicbox Shantytown Orchestra, and I’m pretty psyched to go see/hear it play.
