Yesterday was in ONEderland. Today is not. That's okay. But I am really starting to get frustrated about not being in ONEderland every day. It is definitely progress to be on the cusp like this. And I am proud of that. But dang!!!
I went to silks class this morning. I'm not a morning person. And I was skeptical about the whole thing. My aerial fitness center is open - with strict guidelines and more limited classes. They've done a thing where we sign up for a class at a certain time in a 4 week block. Since I missed the first one (being up with my dad's procedure), I had to make up one class during the week - and the Thursday morning class was the only one available. So, I dragged myself there this morning. It wasn't like it was at the crack of dawn or anything. I mean I'd been up, taken the dog out for a walk around the yard, done some stuff in the kitchen, watered some plants, and had a long drive. So I'd been up for awhile... but my general morning persona, combined with the heat, was giving me low motivation. But it was good.
In fact, I signed up to do next week's Thursday morning as well! Honestly, the reason I hadn't signed up for Thursdays was that I don't like the teacher. But she isn't teaching it now - at least for awhile. So I'll happily go with the sub! There are half a dozen or so teachers. I really like three of them. One was nice, but I don't know her well. One know her stuff, but isn't a great explainer (yes, I made up that word... not a great teacher). And the regular Thursday teacher... well, I got an impression from her that may be completely off base. I kind of feel like she doesn't like watching a whale flop around on the silks. Honestly, I don't blame her, lol. I've watched video of me up there. It isn't pretty, hahaha! But I don't get that feeling from the other instructors. It isn't like she's fat-shaming me with her words... but I feel like her body language kind of is. Anyway, I'm thrilled that she isn't teaching that class!
And I'm so sore!!! Even typing right now hurts, lol. My arms were stiff through yesterday from Sunday. And I'm sure I'll be hurting tomorrow. All good, though!!!
Tonight, we're having ravioli (store bought, but looks yummy) with my homemade marinara sauce. My sauce is so healthy: onions, carrots, crushed tomatoes, garlic, crushed peppers, a touch of olive oil, and a pressure cooker.
My challenge is to not have too much. I need to plate up in the kitchen and not bring the whole she-bang to the table. That's a huge challenge for me.
Exercise is also a challenge at the moment. But... now I have silks twice a week. That is huge! I'm doing my PT nearly every day. I had a session with the therapist yesterday that was more intense for my left knee, but seriously less intense for energy expended. I should have come home and done the other exercises, but didn't want to. I'm giving my knees a rest after silks right now, but hope to do my PT this evening. It is too freaking hot to do anything outside right now. Seriously, it is over 100 degrees - IN OCTOBER!!!! So I won't be doing any cardio for awhile, lol. But I'm looking forward to doing more walking with the dog, and doing some biking when it cools off in a week or two.
I'm just rambling at this point. I've got to get control of my evening portions. That is my next big hurdle!
