So, I've had an offer to start swimming with some friends of mine once a week at the school's pool. I think I've got it worked out to my satisfaction, but actually going swimming in public, in front of people (or, o.k., one person in particular) I want to look nice in front of, involves buying not only a bathing suit for my shapelier form, but also a man's suit (shorts) as a cover-up. I know, I know, I should just get over myself and I'm not the only one going who's unhappy about showing the flab off, but it's still a necessary measure for me to find myself comfortable, AT ALL, doing this.
Working out's been going really well, at least twice (usually three times) a week, and my gym buddy has helped me immensely. I've been eating way more than I feel that I should be, particularly since I've been eating out and not cooking for myself, but that's changing this week because I'm going fairly broke at the end of this month. Well, at least I can start working off some of the flab at the gym instead of just pigging out after the trip.
